Hello everyone! ALL rewards have been mailed out as of two weeks ago. If you have not received your package and you were not an international recipient please email and let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). All t-shirts and wrist bands have been mailed.
We spent about $400 on shipping which means that we have $2079.41 left over to donate to the Jill Biden Breast Health Initiative. Unfortunately, the Biden Breast Health Initiative has had their online "giving license" expire. Efforts over the past several weeks to get in touch with them have not been returned. As such, I will be splitting this donation between the Wounded Warrior Project and Doctors Without Borders with approximately 1040.21 going to each Charity. Please see the attached screenshot.
As all rewards have been delivered and all monies expended via shipping costs, charitable donations and rewards, this will be the end of the campaign. I will be monitoring the email address (email@example.com) for a couple of more weeks before deleting the account.
I sincerely wish everyone the best and thank you so much for participating in this endeavor. Cheers!
I have been able to donate $3,000 to both the Wounded Warrior Project and Doctors w/o Borders. I have attached a screenshot of the confirmation messages to this note. (I sincerely apologize for my lack of paint skills, but I can only upload one image at a time in each update and sacrificed aesthetics for efficiency).
Things to do this week:
- Donate $3k to GLAAD
- Start shipping rewards!
As always, any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello everyone! Sorry about the delay and lack of updates, I’ve had quite a wild ride with my personal life lately. The shirts are in! I will upload a pic as soon as I am able.
As the majority of perks have been purchased now, I feel it is appropriate it to send some money to our charity organizations.
Money rec’d after IG fees: $12,774.96
Interest accrued in my savings account: $40.31
1 scale model TA for one of our $1k contributors: $61.98
Shipping/misc.costs: unknown, reserving $1,457.19
As you can see we still have a fairly large cost of shipping remaining. I do not estimate this as being more than as being too terrible but I am reserving $1,457.19 for shipping and other misc. costs that may arise between now and when the final package is sent out. The remaining amount is exactly $10,000. I will be distributing $3,000 each to GLAAD, Wounded Warriors Foundation and Doctors Without Borders. I have still not heard from the Biden Breast Health Initiative, but I will distribute a $1,000 plus the remaining money after shipping costs to them once all packages are shipped. If for some reason they are not accepting charitable contributions I will be donating the remainder of the money to the Wounded Warrior Project.
I hope this gives everyone an updated status! And as always, should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. email@example.com .
I hope you are continuing to have an awesome week. I just wanted to drop a note saying that we have ordered the t-shirts! I am hoping for them to be shipped to me in the next 2 to 3 weeks.
Also, I will warn everyone that I am addressing and shipping these t-shirts and wrist-bands by myself. I will have close to 500 packages to uniquely address and ship and this may take some time. I’m asking that everyone be patient while this happens.
If anyone has any questions regarding this process or would like any more information please shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
