I maxed out a while back but my wife is still allowed her contribution so we're going to max her out for the tea party.

Question- should we bomb it all at once, or do it in drips and drabs?

My oldest is in fifth grade and wants to stay up until midnight to watch the launch, so we're going to make the first donation right at the stroke of twelve.

One lump sum is probably the best way to go. Less transaction costs.

I don't ever remember being this excited about giving money away.

Bomb the bomb and give all at once. Saves the server a few CPU cycles in the process. ;)

OK.

I bet it does 500K in the first hour.

Hold a little back in case we need a secondary money bomb later in the day to break $5.7 million.

Maybe 1/2, 1/2?

At the opening, later in the day.

Just an idea. Also, I'm encouraging people to wait until 12:05 so they don't jump the gun.

Yup, that is what we are doing here on the west coast. We are waiting until 15 after midnight to drop our dough!
