This morning we officially passed the $5,000 marker, 15 days into the campaign!
My dad, myself, and our family want to send a big, sincere, heartfelt thanks to the 127 contributors who have gotten us to this point as well as everyone who shared the campaign. We're still a long ways from our final goal, but as we've seen over the last 2 weeks, there are many active conversations happening online about this and support continues to roll in. We feel and appreciate the solidarity.
For this update, I have a request for everyone who has donated to this campaign so far and also for whomever else might read this post. I believe we can collectively give this campaign a big boost if we each share it with 5-10 people close to us who we feel would also support it. Sharing it through social channels helps big time—that's how many of you first discovered this I'm guessing. But reaching out personally to people you know always has greater impact and influence.
If we all sent a brief message to 10 friends this weekend, and even 1 or 2 of them donate, that would bring in another 127-254 supporters and a significant boost in donations.
That's all for now! Thanks again so friggin' much for your support!
