We sent a shout out via email about our Fall Matching Gift fundraising campaign.
In our shout out we wrote:
We will be 15 years old on October 23. We love your acknowledging this with your $23.00 donations. They have all been doubled to $64.00. Hooray!
Ummm, $23.00 x 2 = $46.00 not $64.00. Our generous benefactor, being the kind gentleman that he is, decided that he would honor our inadvertent slip up and all $23.00 donations in response to that email became an instant $64.00 donation. How about that?
Well, the generosity continues.
Our supporter is now guaranteeing the following offer:
In honor of your 15 year anniversary on October 23rd — I will double all $23.00 donations to $46.00 and $15.00 donations to $30.00 — for the next 24 hours starting the moment you hit the “send” button to make sure you reach your goal.
When you get a chance, take a look here at all the darling ways to use paper straws and repurpose plastic ones. You will be charmed at the super cute ideas people have come up with for kids parties and more.
