It's time to get back to the best that we do, and that's raising money for the Purple People Seaters. Our annual golf tournament was a huge success this year, raising over $4,000 and I want to capitalize on the momentum we have going.
Last year we tried to get readers to pledge 1 dollar for every point of victory. This was a great idea in theory until we started pounding everyone we played. People's pockets wore thin and dropped off the donation train. In fact, we had 2 readers actually live up to their pledge which ended up being $385 (a small price to pay for such a magical season).
This year's campaign: $10 A Win
Our goal this year is to get 100 readers to pledge $10 a win. Now I know it's the end of the month, and $30 is already owed, but payday is just around the corner and hopefully you will owe $40 on Monday. Let's get on board and start helping out this incredible organization by clicking here to donate. There will also be a sidebar button, and a Dave creation that will track our fund raising progress.
Thank you to all the readers who have donated in the past. We collectively have enabled PPS to take hundreds of underprivileged kids to football games and other sporting events throughout the last few years, and I'm proud to say we are their biggest supporter.
