A Challenge!

Discussion in 'CHUM Gives' started by Sushi Boy, Feb 17, 2006.

    CHUM has been issued a challenge! :)

    Last night's speaker, Buccaneer Barb from the Dive Pirates told us about the great work the organization does helping the disabled experience diving and helping move them into the mainstream of the diving community. Their annual Pirate's Ball is next Thursday at the downtown Aquarium. Everyone who was at Stag's Head last night left being excited about helping the Dive Pirates with their mission.

    That said, a CHUMmer who wishes to remain anonymous (Really! Outback and I don't even know who it is!) has stepped up and offered to match all donations CHUM is able to raise between now and next week's Pirate's Ball DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR! That's right, whatever funds we pull together will be automatically doubled. :cool:

    There are a couple of ways you can donate. Use Paypal and send a donation to [​IMG]
    Please add 3% if you're going to go this route as Paypal likes to take their scrape. You can also send a check made out to CHUM with "Dive Pirates donation" on the memo line to Captain Hardhead. Please PM him for his address.

    Please DO NOT threadjack this thread. Let's keep it for pledges only. If you have any comments etc, put them here.

    Who's willing to meet this challenge? I'm in for $100. Next? Any amount will help.

    There is a limit

    I forgot to tell Sushi Boy in his enthusiasm, there is a match limit of $2000.00, but that doesn't stop us from raising more than that from our donations. My bad for forgetting this last night.

    Great momentum!

    Very cool, thanks for the pledges folks.

    Don't forget, give what you can afford to give. $5, $10, $25, whatever. The cumulative effect is what counts. The more people we have donating, the better!

    Doesn't seem very pirate like to be giving away booty.....but Spanky and I are in for a Benji.

    I'll steal something from SB later......that will make me feel better.

    Thanks to everyone who's donated so far.

    By my count, so far we've raised $950 which will be matched. :cool:

    We're accepting donations for the matching challenge through this Thursday evening, so there's still time to get yours in.

    To all

    What a terrific response and great group you are

    I have collected another $125.00 from my office. FYI.

    Sushi Boy DAM CHUMmer

    Very cool!

    Don't feel that you have to post your donation. If you'd rather keep it on the down low, that's fine, too. Just send me a PM so I can keep track of the total.
  18. Sushi Boy

    Sushi Boy DAM CHUMmer

    Well folks, y'all have proven to be a very generous group! :) By my unofficial tally, we're well over $1000 (we'll announce the grand total tomorrow), but there's still room for us to get to the $2000 matching limit by the Thursday deadline.

    If anyone else wants to donate, please either put up a post or send me a PM so I can let you know the best way to get your donation in.

    Thanks to everyone who's participated! :cool:

    Tick, tock

    We're going to close out the Challenge at 3:00 today, so if anyone wants to make a last minute pledge, just let me know.
