Red Ops Day 4: Camden/Trenton

Submitted by on May 24, 2012 – 12:04 AM5 Comments

Strong day so far! 4 projects already done, just $100 left on this one — and we have a match code, JERSEY, in effect all day!

Just to sweeten the deal here: how about a $25 Amazon gift card in addition to the $25 DC gift code already up for grabs? Donate to any of these fine feathered Jersey projects and forward me your receipt, and you’re eligible for either of those!

Keep pushing, friends. Vacation’s coming.

It’s all Jersey all the time today: your communities include Camden, Camden County, and Trenton — and as you may have heard, Trenton has a little complex about its place in the world. Won’t you help out? (That W. Collingswood board-games project is nearly done, just needs a leeeeeeetle push.)

Your Red Ops URL is right here. Your match code, up to $100, is “JERSEY.” And your prize for the morning is another $25 Donors Choose gift code compliments of Vanessa Y.

Please RT or otherwise share with your world (and don’t forget to forward me your receipts!).

From the people who brought you Springsteen, Cory Booker, and Sinatra, it’s…Camden?

Yeah, sometimes it’s like that. My Jersey peeps need a hand. Good news, though! 1) We have another match code. It’s JERSEY, and it’s good all day, so double your donation up to a $100. 2) Look at these cute projects: board games! book club! pen pals!

See you back here in daylight with some prize-age. Don’t forget to forward me your receipts, please!

    Phooey, the match doesn’t work with account credits, just new donations. Whyfor?

  • KJ says:

    You mentioned yesterday that there were a lot more donations than you were getting receipts for. I have noticed that I don’t get a receipt when I’m using account credits (like from a monthly donation or gift card) so that may account for some of the discrepancy.

  • Sarah D. Bunting says:

    @Dang, I don’t know the reason for that, but I’ve been hearing that. I’ll inquire with my DC contacts.

    @KJ, I’ve heard that too. You’re welcome to forward screenshots et al. if you’re not getting a receipt via email.

    Any other issues or questions, let me/us know and we’ll try to find solutions!

  • Katherine says:

    I lucked into a prize already, so I’m not sending in more receipts. Want to let someone else in on the fun!

    I do think the TN/DC combo is my favorite fundraiser for anything.

  • doriette says:

    @KJ, I’ve just been dropping Sars’ email address into the “tell a friend” field, after the donation goes through.
