I'm out of foil - my hat can't get any bigger.

Just donated, want to say thank you to the EB team for taking on this huge project. My EB handle doesn't match my donation, but honestly I think you guys will do a good job figuring out everything before go live. I'll continue to add a bunch of Phish stuff, the begining of this site.

Been a busy week at the day job, but getting caught up a little today. All reward prints should be shipped out with the exception of one or two from the last 48 hours. Donations have been logged in the EB system thru 9/25... hoping to do more tomorrow and keep moving on...
Tally as of this afternoon is just under $100 shy of $20,000... nice job all :D

yeah one was probably enough. anyone who cares enough to donate probably already uses the site enough to know about the fundraising.

to be honest, coming from years of experience with affiliate marketing, this site should easily make enough $ to pay for itself several times over with ebay affiliate income if implemented correctly.

Alright, just donated again. I'm not sure I'll be a beta tester as I don't think my EB email is the same as my PP email. So long as the site gets fixed its all good.

Let's address a few things here...

If your email is different from your registered email on EB, drop me a PM. I haven't gotten to any of those as of yet, but will. Right now I'm mid way thru donations on 9/27... it is a backlog. But I'm also one person doing this part of things and I still have a day job in addition to other things in life so I try and do it when I can, as I can...

The email today was meant to go to those who had not yet donated. After it was implemented (and because I got one myself), I realize that since I haven't gotten thru all of the donations from round 1 that the system likely wouldn't be recognizing those who had contributed... So my apologies for those who got it and had already given - you likely got it because I'm not caught up yet and there was no way around that.

Last up... not sure what amount of $ you think "should" be made from eBay commissions but if you think it's enough to cover the site "several times over" while also paying for servers, taxes, etc. well... you're more than a bit mistaken. But anyway... if you feel that it's not right to give to the campaign, that's up to you.

As a plus though... as of this afternoon we're just shy of $22,000... really amazing...

That’s awesome. :clap:

Did Mitchell and Doyle get in touch about their offer of prints to help the cause? Or is that something you need to get in touch with them about, since they already made the offer?

Edit, just went back and looked. Looks like both of them asked to be contacted about print donations. Ditto finnegan and Pollock via jenivirgo. Hope that has happened! :D
