    Default Quick Math on Fundraising Efforts...

    Online reported contributions only...as of May 21.

    A total of 105 people have raised over $100

    Of those:
    60 have raised between 100 and 200
    24 have raised between 200 and 300
    17 people have raised between 300 and 100
    4 have raised over 1000

    Quick math says:
    60 x ~150 = 9000
    24 x ~250 = 6000
    17 x ~500 = 8500
    Top 4 = ~ 10000

    So therefore the top 100ish people have already reported fundraising at nearly a really roughly added $35,000, or about what seek the peak brought in total a few years ago!

    Looks like a great start!!!

    I like that math. We're definitely off to a great start considering that this is still May. Does anyone have the numbers for where we were at about this date last year?

    Hopefully the webcast (or whatever media was decided) will help give people more ideas on how to do fundraising and really generate a lot more pledges. Lots of good tools already with the news release forms, etc.

    Of course we could just forget about all of this if we could somehow figure out how to clone Ed

    Jim,

    I am within $10 of $1,000 and will definitely be over that. I want my fleece. Maybe a different color this year?

    Good to hear we are off to a great start. Now if I could just get past $50 and hit the $100 mark all will be good...the rest will be gravy!

    I did a photo event for the NJ Audi club this past weekend. Same as I mentioned back in April, only this time the club really liked what I did and that I was doing it for charity, instead of selling the pics. They got me media access to the entire track and over 2 days I shot over 3600 images. In a follow up email to all their members they mentioned again that I was there and added links to my STP page.

    Since Monday, I've picked up 26 new sponsors! All before they even had a preview of the pictures! I've got at least 30 more that have made requests. Yesterday, I finally reached my goal amount and last night they kicked me over it!

    Watch out Ed!

    Way to go Erich! Great finding ways to leverage other social networks and tie in "volunteering" in them to generate STP donations.
