Saturday afternoon will mark the second full week of this mind-blowingly successful fundraiser, and I’m absolutely flabbergasted by it’s success.
I don’t know why I’m saying that? After all, time and time again the online woodworking community has heeded the call for help from friends and colleagues alike. You’re always there for the good, the bad and the downright scary so I don’t know why I thought this would be any different?
A quick recap for those of you who somehow missed my earlier posts on the success of this campaign. Within a matter of a few days the official goal amount I was hoping to raise to help pay for a new and improved website was reached. While I was hesitant at first to continue the campaign beyond that first goal many of you encouraged me to press on and raise it to yet another goal amount.
Just as quickly as the first goal was achieved, that second “unofficial” amount was reached. And now, thanks to your extraordinary generosity, I’m extremely close to literally doubling the first goal!
What really blows me away the most is that this was all done in less than half the time the entire campaign was scheduled to run! Thank you!
I still have about 15 days (as of this posting) until the campaign officially ends. In the meantime, please consider donating if you haven’t already. At this point the extra funds are being put to use to either purchase new studio equipment for the production of the podcast or possibly even for travel expenses to visit conferences and elsewhere for more show content.
For those who have already donated at the T-shirt level and above, as soon as I officially close the campaign you’ll be hearing from me to get sizes and addresses. It’ll be a few weeks before I’ll have everything ready to mail out, but I’ll keep all of you informed.
For those of you who donated at banner ad or sponsorship levels I’ll also be in contact with you to make arrangements and schedule dates for those.
AGAIN, thank you so much for blowing my mind with your generosity! Because of the quick success of this campaign, things are underway already for the new and improved website. So stay tuned as things start to roll out.
Thanks again everyone…I’m so thankful for all of your generosity!
