I may have mentioned once or twice, that the Spouse Thingy is joining me in walking the SGK 3 Day Walk in San Diego this year. We have until November to raise a total of $4600 ($2300 each), and like always, I am willing to do things to raise the money.
To start… In gearing up for fundraising this year, a couple of pretty freaking generous people (who wish to remain anonymous) coughed up some freaking fantastic prizes. I am blown away by their generosity, and haven’t been able to thank them enough…because, damn, these are super spiffy with sprinkles on top. In total, the prizes exceed $1000 in value.
As in previous years, for every $5 you donate to either my or the Spouse Thingy’s walk fund, you’re entered to win.
In no particular order, we have:
Kodak 14MP digital camera
Roku Streaming Stick
Kindle Fire 6
Samsung Galaxy Tab E
11" Dell laptop
13” Dell laptop
*The Garmin Vivosmart HR is an open-box, used for 5 days during a merchandise test. The scale was not opened.
Because it’s the most valuable—at $500, or priceless in terms of health, and the sooner you get healthy the better—the first up will be the Vivosmart HR and Index Smart Scale. Winner will be drawn on April 30th after 6 pm Pacific, so don’t wait!
Other prize dates:
June 15: Kodak camera, Roju Stick, and Kindle Fire 6
August 15: Samsung Galaxy Tab E and 11.6” Dell laptop
September 15: 13” Dell laptop
The earlier you enter, the more prizes you have a shot at; enter now and you’re still in the running for the past prize in July, even if you’ve already won something.
Here’s the kicker: if we both meet our fundraising goals by the end of September, we’ll have one more, hopefully really big, prize…details are still being worked out, but one donor has offered to get something really spiffy.
OK THUMP, HOW DO I DONATE & ENTER?
To make it easy…Donate directly to my SGK fundraising page [click here] and be sure to use your correct email address, so that I can contact you for shipping when you when. Once I hit the $2300 minimum, we’ll change the URL and you can donate to the Spouse Thingy’s page.
OK THUMP, **WHY** SHOULD I DONATE?
Other than you might win something? Because 80% of the money raised from these walks goes directly to the research that will eventually find a cure for breast cancer.
You’ll help save the boobies.
You like boobies. I know you do.
OK THUMP CAN I DONATE MORE THAN ONCE?
Sure. You can make more than one donation, or if you prefer you can split a larger donation and Komen will charge your credit card in equal installments every month for 4 months.
OK THUMP BUT WHAT CAN WE DO TO MAKE THE WABBIT **DO** THINGS?
Suggest something. I've overplayed the hair dye thing and I like it, so that's not really a perk...but hey, I will do things.
And guys...it's your generosity that makes these events happen, and because of that progress is being made. And for that, I thank you.
