Incentive to donate!

Posted by admin on June 7th, 2011 filed in Exercise and nutrition, General, Life List

I’d really like to get some sponsors for the Walk for Epilepsy that I will be participating in later this month. What can I offer to get you to donate? I’m thinking about it. Do you have any suggestions? I don’t want to do anything embarrassing, but I think there are probably still some things I can do in exchange for your support. For starters, I will make a batch of chocolate chip cookies and mail them to the person that contributes the most to this wonderful cause. I will also randomly pick one person who contributed $5 or more to receive a batch of chocolate chip cookies. If I raise more than $30 for the cause, the Epilepsy organization will give me a ticket to a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game. I will randomly pick one person from all the donors, no matter the amount donated, to receive the ticket. If some inspiration strikes and I come up with a short story, I will send that to all people who donate, no matter the amount (this prize is pending the arrival of my muse and stick-to-it-iveness). So here is the list of prizes so far:

1 batch chocolate chip cookies – goes to the top sponsor
1 batch chocolate chip cookies – goes to one randomly selected sponsor who gave $5 or more
1 Pittsburgh Pirates ticket (provided I get over $30 total in donations) – goes to one randomly selected sponsor who contributed any amount
1 short story in email format, if I get it done in time, possibly – goes to each sponsor who contributed any amount

Each sponsor can have up to one prize in addition to the not-yet-written-and-possibly-never-will-be short story. I’ll draw for the cookies first, and for the ticket second. Prizes will be mailed after the event so everyone has time to get involved if they want to.

So how can you donate? Go to my site and make your donation. Then email me and let me know. If you want, I will include your name in a thank you post later, but I will not publish amounts. Thanks guys!
