Today, Angie and I compiled all of our contacts onto a single spreadsheet to streamline the fundraising process. Everyday we get closer to March 9, so we have to get even more serious about getting our funds together.
The important thing here is that if everyone we know could commit to just $15/month, we'd hit 100% for the first year! And then (for various reasons) our costs go down for any subsequent time there. So maybe $10 or less for the rest of our time there.
I know it's unlikely that everyone can give, but it certainly makes the task of fundraising seem easier! It's a huge sigh of relief.
Except that now we have to start making phone calls...
