    We have 10 min (Untill 5.03 pm) to reach 750,000

    If we do that Ron will be able to say that he raised 250k online in 24 hours.

    I had an idea for the next quarter.

    How about a weekly goal for fundraising, that goes up week for week. Lets say the goal is to mount a seriously well-funded grassroots effort, what about:

    Week 1: 500,000
    Week 2: 650,000
    Week 3: 800,000
    Week 4: 950,000

    and so on...

    The idea is to keep us active in this fund-raising effort, and by constantly increasing the goal, we will have to keep getting better at finding donors.

    Or... you could set a challenge, "how much can we raise in 1 week" and then just add 20% on top of the result and make that the goal for the next week, and so on.

    The first option is appealing because they could set a ambitious goal from the beginning, and devide it up into doable chunks. it would probably need a "spill-over" fund where the money goes if we break the fundraising-goal for that week as well.

    The second option is more dynamic, because there is no fixed final goal, and it also has the effect of keeping us all engaged.

    Nah, its cool to read the reaction of the people as the number goes up rather than just watching a number go up.

    Yep. It's really fun reading what people say!

    Also, you can encourage each other to find ways to donate even more money!

    Is that like finding that you have a bank account with money in it?

    Over $760,000 Now Over 2 Full Days to Go.

    Fundraising last quarter spiked big time on those days as much as 250% of the normal daily totals. Could we see 500K more by the end of the quarter

    Who thinks we will hit $800,000 dollars tonight?

    If we hit $800,000 dollars then we will only have to raise one hundred thousand dollars each day for the next two days. I think that is very doable.

    But everyone needs to keep on donating. This is only going to happen if everyone chips in and does their part!
