You do the math

September 14, 2008 at 8:28 pm

Never mind–I’ll do the math for you. What do we need to make our goal in the next two weeks?

As of Friday, we were at $6,663. That leaves us with $3,337 dollars to hit our $10,000 goal. We have 130 wonderful participants in our event. If each participant raises an additional $26 we will be over our $10,000. (In the neighborhood of $25.67 will get us to exactly $10,000).

$26 is easy–right?

Five, $5 donations will get you to $25. So–here’s the deal. We are going to be offering a 5-5-5 prize this week. Every participant who gets five different donors to give at least five dollars each will get five books.

That’s right–5 donors x $5 each = 5 free books for you!

Together we can make a difference for young people with Cystic Fibrosis today and in generations to come!
