We are one week away from the end of our IndieGoGo fundraising campaign and have raised an astonishing $7,218 to date! That means we are just $2,782 from our goal of $10K by Sep. 5!
Yet again, we are ready to up the ante. If we make it to $10K by Monday, Sep. 5, we will dress in ridiculous costumes, parade ourselves down the busy Wellington waterfront, and take a POLAR PLUNGE! This is not just any plunge – this is a 13 foot drop into the COLD Wellington Harbour. And don’t forget – it’s winter here! Just two weeks ago it snowed in Wellington for the first time in 40 years! Yikes!
In addition to our polar plunge, on Sep. 6 we’ll hold our big prize drawings! First, for all backers who donated $25 or more, we’ll draw a winner for a $100 Visa gift card.
Second, from among our $100+ backers, one lucky person will win a pair of premium football tickets – a choice of: Atlanta Falcons v. Philadelphia Eagles on 9/18: Sec 137, Row 19, Seats 7/8 OR Georgia Tech v. Virginia Tech on 11/10: Sec 225, Row 10, Seats 13/14. These are fantastic seats!!
And IF we make it to $10K, ALL of our IndieGoGo backers will be entered into a drawing to win the other pair of tickets! But only if we make it to $10K. A big IF.
So we need your help. We are poised to create the largest online database of professional and academic fellowships in the world with 1,000 fellowships in 183 days.
