If You Help Me Raise Money, I Will Do ________

International Money Pile in Cash and CoinsSo, here’s the deal – I haven’t raised nearly as much money for my big long hockey game to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis as I would have liked. Right now, I’m sitting at about $2,000 raised, which, while very awesome in itself, still only works out to like $8/hr1, since I’m going to be playing hockey for 243 hours! I need to do better than that!

I know that times are tough and lots of people are competing for your charitable donations, so I think I need to up the ante a bit. I need to offer something more than just my undying gratitude. But what to offer?

I could offer to write a blog posting about whatever you want. I could offer to wash your car. I could offer to bake you cookies! But really, I guess what I need to know is what you’d actually want, potential donor. What do you want??

Actually, I have made one deal with someone – basically, I agreed to do something that someone has been bugging me to do for *ages* in exchange for a donation…. (Nothing like *that*! Get your mind of the gutter!) And it gave me the idea that if I could bribe one person, why not many?

So make me an offer, blog reader. Comment, email me, Facebook me, tweet @ me, text me, or send me snail mail or a messenger pigeon to let me know what you want me to do in exchange for a donation. No reasonable offer will be refused!

  1. For the record, I am immensely appreciative of everyone who has donated so far – $2,000 is a lot of money to raise and I couldn’t have done it without each of you! []

    Eat meat! No, wait… 🙂

    Hey – I don’t know if you saw this on FB, but Leanne’s sister Melanie (who I love and was also at our wedding) has a good friend playing, too. Her name is also Sarah. Let her know that you are loved by a Kennett woman, too.

    I’m going to scrape together some more cash and throw it at you. I’ll also bug my Mom to do the same. xo

    Awww, Sar, you are too sweet! I know that you’ve already donated generously!

    I did see that on FB – I have met Mel’s friend – we’ve been doing Bootcamp together! She went to Guelph – I’d actually asked her if she knew you, but she didn’t. Funny that she knows Mel!
