Red Ops Day 2: Brownsville, TX
Done! That's awesome. Thank you so much, everybody. We polished off the whole high-need list for Brownsville/Harlingen.
The Red Ops page will probably flip back to unfinished Albuquerque projects for the rest of the day. Please feel free to donate to those; you can still use the BROWNSVILLE match code to double your dollars (up to $100 per donor). At midnight, the page will flip forward to The 'Lo. Know anyone in/from Buffalo? Get 'em psyched.
Or you can sit back and relax for the afternoon — but if you haven't donated today, remember, we've got Amazon-ness, movie-0sity, and matching. Forward your receipts!
Less than $700 to go in beautiful Brownsville! Donating today could get you an Amazon gift card; you can use a match code (BROWNSVILLE) to double your donation; AND if you can polish off these last two projects by 4 PM ET, I'll throw in a $50 movie-date prize pack (2 tickets and a $5 gift card, good at all Regal Entertainment Group theaters).
Share! Give! Win! Do it by 4 ET!
Gooooood morning! I see the night shift did its usual awesome damage, and now our Brownsville page has just three projects left!
Not sure what we'll do if we finish early. Maybe go back to Albuquerque; maybe rest up for The 'Lo tomorrow. In the meantime: donate, spread the word, and forward me your receipts. Today's prize (the first one anyway) is a $50 Amazon gift code generously donated by reader Beth G. Send me those acknowledgment emails at bunting at tomatonation dot com, and don't forget that we have a match code today: BROWNSVILLE. Type it at checkout and get your donation matched up to $100!
Welcome to Day 2, friends! Next up: Brownsville, TX. Times are tough, but this mission's a cinch: just five projects, barely north of two grand, AND DonorsChoose.org has supplied a match code. Enter BROWNSVILLE at checkout and double your donation (up to $100 per donor). We can probably kill this target dead by lunchtime, so let's do it!
The URL's the same as yesterday — if you see Albuquerque projects, you can still donate to those, or just wait until Texas comes online — but today we've got shiny new projects to help with: arts and crafts; guitar gear; and Nancy Drew.
You can still suggest projects, too (if Brownsville's tapped out, other high-need projects from that county would work). Email me at bunting at tomatonation dot com with links or questions.
See you in the later AM with prize news! Until then: donate; forward me receipts; RT and FB; and congrats on a great first day! Almost $3700 in donations, and you reached over 100 kids in New Mexico. Well done! Keep it up.
