Getting over the hump
How is everyone doing? Do your goals feel within your grasp–or are you feeling a bit frustrated? Right now you should be about half-way to your reading, writing and donation goals.
We are over half-way to the Unleash Your Story donation goal of $10,000. Of course, we would love to surpass that goal-and we can if all of you hit your individual donation goals. You, as a group, have come up with a goal of $19,000–nearly double our original goal. If we all work together we can reach that higher goal!
What do we need to do? Let’s use my personal donation goal as an example. I have $385 on the way to my $500 personal goal. I’ve asked all of my closest friends and relatives. I’ve even sent a second ask to those who didn’t respond right away. Some of those potential donors may still come through, but I can’t sit back and wait for that to happen. I have $115 left to go. That is only 23, $5 donations or just 6 $20 donations. It’s time for me to head back to my address book and think about other folks I can ask. I don’t know a lot of people who can donate that $115 that I need, but I do know many who can afford $5.
I’ll bet you do to. That is why we are offering a special prize this week to those of you who get just 5 additional donors to give $5 or more. It is our 5-5-5 prize. 5 donors x $5 = 5 free books! You have until Sunday, September 21 to get those five donors. Go for it!
