This is way overdue. I have to apologize to everyone, I have been busy inside of busy inside of busy lately – there is so much to do for this fundraiser!! It is all very exciting stuff though, it feels like every day something positive happens.
A quick note on the donation process: A few people have asked me if the fundraiser is for the local Portland and/or Richmond Boys and Girls Club, or if it is for the national Boys and Girls Club of America. The answer is: I am raising money for all 3. It is very important to me that the local clubs closest to me (Portland, my hometown, and Richmond, where I live now) benefit directly from this fundraiser– as such, the people that I seek donations from who have a special affiliation for either club can choose to donate directly to that local club. The people that I meet outside of the Richmond and Portland communities, who do not have any special connection to either of these local clubs, can donate to the national organization.
To make a donation to the Richmond Club, click on the “Donate to the Boys and Girls Club of Richmond” link on the sidebar on the Blog Homepage.
To make a donation to the Boys and Girls Club of America, click on the “Donate to the Boys and Girls Club of America” link.
To make a donation to the Portland Club, please contact me. I am still working on getting a printable mail-in donation form up on the Blog, should be up soon!
If you would like to mail a check, please contact me.
ALL donations (to the Richmond, Portland Clubs, and BGC of America) will be included in the count towards my fundraising goal of $25,000. Please let me know when you’ve made a donation!
I’ve added a “Many Thanks To” link on the sidebar, please check it out, I’ll be adding names as we receive donations.
Ok, I’ll have to sign off here — apologies if this post is all business and no play, but hey, occasionally there are things to do besides running all day ; )
