Red Ops Day 6: The Dakotas

Great work today, everyone: 6 projects completed! And we still have that DAKOTAS match code all evening, so if you're winding down from the weekend, soothe that sunburn with a donation!

I have another Old Navy gift card to offer, and if you finish this Dr. Seuss project tonight, I'll finish the project that's next closest to being finished! Put the green back in Green Eggs and Ham, people!

actual Day 6, 9:15 AM
Good morning, all. Great job on the Dakotas so far; already, you've completed 3 projects and raised over a grand, on a holiday weekend! Also, the DAKOTAS match code is now working; please enter it merrily at checkout all day today!

Also, if you have time between barbecues and baseball and whatnot, please consider donating to Flashlight Friday and Living the Good Life – Science, both of which have less than a hundo before completion. All donations are eligible for a $25 DC gift code today! Thanks, Vanessa Y.!

Forward those receipts!

9 PM
Unfortunately, it looks like the DAKOTAS code isn't going into effect until later tonight. But feel free to keep trying — and the Ancestry.com prize is still a go!

6:45 PM
I totally forgot: there's a match code! Enter DAKOTAS at checkout and get your donation matched up to $100! Yay!

2:30 PM
Happy Memorial Day weekend, friends! I hope everyone stateside is having a relaxing one (and everyone else, too). If you have a moment and a sawbuck, though, step on over to the Red Ops page, because it's time to help out the Dakotas! It's not really Day 6 yet, but why not give a two-state target an extra day, right?

It's my grandmother's birthday today. All donors today (Sunday 27 May) are eligible for a gift membership to Ancestry.com (U.S.-focus, for 6 months) in her honor. (You can regift it to another recipient if you'd like; I just need his/her email address.) Great Father's Day gift! Just forward those receipts to bunting at tomatonation dot com as you normally would; more prizes to come!

Be Sociable, Share!
