Save The Day: April 12
4:30 PM update, with snoozing visual aids Mabel (L) and "Little" Joe (R)
$83,738! And my tax refund arrived in the mail today, so in addition to giving away shirts (explained below), I'd also like to throw in
one of these lazy and annoying felines $25 to one winner's project of choice from anywhere on the leaderboard! Just make a donation to a project on the Superpage, and you could win!
Your total so far is truly impressive and amazing — but if it's Mabel-sized right now, let's fatten it up to Joe size! Give that leaderboard some kibble! This metaphor doesn't work at all but I committed to it so fuck it! Cats! Money! Okay!
11:45 AM update
$82,558. Keep at it; I know you've got hitting 85 in you. Out of money 'til payday? Put it on blast on social media.
I'm in the field 'til happy hour; try not to break DonorsChoose.org while I'm out. Heh.
9:30 AM update
$82,470! Pretty impressive haul! Great job by Ann D. and her pages yesterday, and all of you who helped out.
But…we've got 167K left to raise. If you haven't posted a link to the Superpage on Facebook yet, please do that today. Hit up your grandparents. Guilt a co-worker. "Heroism: The Telephone Game" — let's get it done.
Any donation to the Superpage today is eligible for a Save The Day shirt, with more mini-prizing to come in the afternoon. Fund a band! Help kids tie-dye! Bring Mexico to Jersey City! Or sift and sort all the Red Planet projects to find one that speaks to you.
