Red Ops: Mission Accomplished

Submitted by on June 10, 2012 – 7:43 PM5 Comments

Apologies for the updating delay! Had a few connectivity issues (and periodontal issues…blegh) last week, just getting caught up now.

But this isn’t news: you guys did awesome. The Red Ops drive raised close to 40K for high-need schools across the country. Nice!

Now I’ve got some prizes to give away — even nicer! Here’s how that’ll work:

1. You’ll get an email from me notifying you that you’ve won a Red Ops prize.
2. Please read the entire email carefully, and follow the instructions therein (you’ll have to rank the list of prizes in order of your preference, then send the list back to me at a specified time).
3. If you have questions or don’t wish to claim a prize, please get back to me ASAP.
4. Prizes will be given out on a first-come-first-served basis. If you’ve won a daily prize, you’re still eligible.

If you didn’t get an email from me noting that your receipt was logged, YOU ARE NOT ENTERED FOR PRIZING. Please forward those receipts to bunting at tomatonation dot com┬áby Monday 11 June, 11:59 PM ET. (Think you already forwarded it? Just forward it again, NBD.)

Other, non-prize stuff:
You can continue donating to various projects and pages if you’d like, but I won’t be adding any more projects until our next drive.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated, shared on social media, and donated prizes — and big thanks to Jenny and Katie at for all their help with coordinating! (And Super Dave for another rad logo.)

Questions, ask ’em. Otherwise, get ready to win some stuff.
