I would skip out on a couple runs to the gas station, but that'd leave me sitting stupid on the interstate. So will be back Fri

Let this be a wonderful argument against anyone that uses the tired "it's just the internet, why so srs" argument. Yes, it's the internet, but that's the same internet that brings this many people together to achieve amazing things.

Yeah, the generosity of our fellow members has been evident and impressive.  I didn't expect us to do the same volume as we have with disaster relief fundraisers, but we're averaging more per contribution right now than in any previous drive.  

 

At the moment, the average contribution is over $30.  

 

We still have fewer than 50 different contributors right now, but all those $10, $25, and $100+ gifts are adding up in a hurry and we're now over 60% of the way towards our original goal in less than 24 hours. 

 

 

Last night, I heard from one of our friends at Room to Read and they were "floored" by NikeTalk's response.  We raised that first $1,000 in less than 10 hours.  I hope we can keep this up.

When you put it that way, it's a pretty easy decision, right?

There's no shortage of causes, but it does take a certain type of crowdfunding system to make the badge awards possible - and, most of the time, those systems extract ADDITIONAL fees above credit card/paypal transaction costs.  (With Mercy Corps, our fundraising drives ran through their website rather than a third-party crowdfunding source, but not few organizations offer this service.) 

 

Efficiency matters.  I actually make the community contributions via check.  (A credit card transaction fee on $10,000 or $30,000 is pretty steep, and we want the nonprofits to receive every single penny they can - and the last thing I want to do is "donate" 3% to the big banks.)

 

This article contains a useful fee table to give you a good idea of what it costs just to contribute to your favorite charities:  http://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/nonprofits/donate-charities-corporations/

 

 

We also want to ensure that contributors feel valued.  If we held a different drive every month, we'd quickly start to see signs of fatigue.  By reserving them for times of great need or great opportunity, each event can have greater impact and there's less chance of users feeling drained.

 

Given that we fund our community contributions through advertising revenue, we're all raising money for charity together with each and every visit.

Meth, I was reading over the contest guidelines and from what I see, it looks like we have to raise $5,000 in order to be eligible for the community match. Can you shed some light on this? nerd.gif

Whatever amount we raise, raise to read will match so if we raise $2,500 they'll put up $2,500 and that'll be $5,000

We are killin' it NT!!! There is nothing we cant do as a community with a common goal.
Props to EVERYONE who has donated so far and to those who have pledged a donation when the funds are available.

Philanthropy, in all its forms, is something that is close to my heart. It is one of the most satisfying things a person can do.
The thrill of some new Jordans or a TV or an Xbox will quickly fade into nothingness, as new Js and better TVs are made.

But the impact that our donations provide could easily change lives well into the next century.
Even after we are all dead and gone the legacy of what we are building here at NT, through our donation drives, will live on.

Keep up the excellent work my brothers(and 5 or 6 sisters).

As with other charity drives I have participated in, I will be making some additional incentive donations.
So starting @ $2000, for every $1000 NT raises I will donate an additional $25.

I like this idea, Jays! I'll do the same.

So, Niketalk.... starting at $2,000 (we're already there, by the way) for every $1,000 donated, an extra $50 ($25 from @JaysRcrak and $25 from myself, lobotonymeats) will be donated. For ever person that I've made a snarky photoshop or gif about, get even with kindness!

Well done kids and well done @Methodical Management
