If You Help Me Raise Money, I Will Do ________
So, 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!
- 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! [↩]
