A New Experiment!
As I posted in my ‘Welcome’ sticky post up top, today I’ve inaugurated an Indigogo campaign to finish off this fundraiser in time to get my Element modified to accommodate my power chair so I can board and drive it safely in order to resume my life and get down to Tampa for the RNC events. It’s pretty much a reaffirmation of my matching offer that Tom Woods inspired, so if the goal’s met, whoever’s responsible for the most views and donations resulting from them (Indiegogo and this blog definitely track stats) or for the largest single donation to complete the goal will become the inheritor of my house, property and valuable possessions like my firearm collection and others after my demise, or after my mom’s demise, whichever occurs last.
I upped the target goal by $4000 to $30,000 from the original $26,000 to account for the $1500 cost of Freedom Motors picking up my Honda, getting it to their Michigan facility for modification, then returning it for delivery at my home…all fast and well insured, plus any expenses incurred to attend the Tampa events. Those are items I could either pay for or finance myself, but I figured by throwing in all of those extra goodies to sweeten the deal it makes the extra target worthwhile.
Remember, if someone donates $21,000 or thereabouts, their kids or grandkids will inherit a house and land valued at $148,000 in 2001, not a bad long term investment.
Now, if the Indiegogo campaign fails to meet the $21,000 goal by 7/11, any pledged donations will be returned to the donors. I sure hope that doesn’t happen, but if so I’m in no worse shape than I am today with the just under $9000 that’s already been raised. After that, I’ll continue the Get Glenn Mobile! project from there.
A nice thing about Indiegogo is the ability to add perks, incentives for donors to give at different levels. Right now I only have one to offer, thanks to my friend, the wonderfully talented Dan Hagen; anyone who donates at least $25 will receive a downloadable high quality MP3 of his terrific cover of the classic ‘What’s Going On’ as interpreted by my bud in his inimitable jazz style!
Hopefully over the next couple of days more perks at higher levels will be added as well, so please do check the Indiegogo campaign often for news. You’ll also be able to monitor the tally of its progress, something folks have asked for with this blog but couldn’t be done due to WordPress’ inability to use widgets like counters…That’s why I’ve been updating the total raised myself, in the red font area of my ‘Welcome’ page.
Tell your friends and family…now’s the time!
