First, a HEARTY thank you to the 154 of you who have donated thus far! Supporter turnout and enthusiasm has truly been inspirational.
Second, here's another update. We entered the day as 1 of 735 participating DC-area nonprofits. We currently rank 5th overall in total donors (154) and 10th overall in total dollars ($7,916)! That amazes me! Moreover, we won a $1,500 prize for the 6-8 a.m. time slot (awarded to the first 5 organizations to reach 40 unique donations). And we believe we were the sole winner of another $1,500 prize for the 10-11 a.m. time slot (awarded to the organization with the most unique donations). Check out the leader board and prizes here
United Way will award a total of $18,500 to the top 4 small organizations (revenues under $1 million) in terms of most dollars raised. While we can't be sure, we believe we're currently in the top 4, perhaps as high as 2nd.
If we can reach our goal of 200 donors, I think we'll secure a top 4 finish. Let's finish strong! If you haven't donated (or, heck, would like to donate twice like one of our staff members), our donor page
remains just a click away for the next 8 hours.
Thanks again, and have a blessed evening.
