Alliance Grant Challenge

Post by krampus » Mon Dec 08, 2014 4:20 pm

If this is the current status of our fund raising then we have some work to do. I am offering up a fund raising challenge. If the thermometer breaks $27,200 by 12pm on Wednesday 12/10/2014 I will match the pot with $500 of my own.

Fiddy bucks in. That's like a chossy slab and a half fewer to bolt this winter...

Anyway, big bump for Sir Krampster. Here's the link for all the yuppies out there in Louisville, Ohio, and Canada:

not entirely sure, but I hope so...kinda, but I guess not really cus then we'd be closer

It's more than I would ordinarily go for, but an extra 35 G's would go a long way. The red is super important to me, and worth it. Besides, it aint shit compared to the time and effort the coalition has put into getting this sort of grant organized, not to mention the time and hardware from the developers, and the lowly intern who has hit the ground at full sprint. I'd like to see their efforts come to fruition.

Well either way, I have climbed more than ever this year, so I'll kick in an extra $50 right now.

J-Ru: Re: the thermometer: I've got it automatically updating with each one-time PayPal donation, and have a manually updated variable that stores the amount pulled in by other means (i.e. Rocktoberfest, the Rockhouse dance party, the upcoming Skybridge Station Ben Sollee / Jason Burton event). As soon as I get an official total from the Friday night after Thanksgiving, I'll update with that, too. :)

To everyone who has been breathing new wind into this ongoing fundraising challenge over the past few weeks, thank you infinity plus one times over. :)

Pretty humbling display of generosity, krampus. Make that $101 to go with 25 hrs remaining. Your bank account doesn't stand a chance!

OK, so I just donated $56, we only need 1 more person to donate an even $50 to get $500! Please don't pass up a 1000% return on your investment. It is really important for climbers to own climbing areas. Nobody else cares about your passion.
Step up!
