I’m Jamie Thingelstad, and this is a Special Thing! This is a never-before-done middle-of-the-week short email for Weekly Thing subscribers to encourage everyone to participate in the Second Harvest fundraising campaign!
Last Saturday I announced that I was doing a first-ever fundraising campaign in Weekly Thing #140, matching up to $10,000 in contributions to Second Harvest! As Covid-19 has done so much damage to our economy, it is very clear that there are going to be a lot of people that will need help. If you are in a position to offer that help, I want to match it with you!
We have already had a big impact! 🙌
So far we’ve raised $2,905 for Second Harvest! With the match, that is already $5,810! It gets better! Right now Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota is also matching so we have already brought in $11,620!
That means we have already provided 34,860 meals for people in need!
But, we can do much more. We can provide another 85,140 meals for people in need if we hit the $10,000 goal and maximize the match!
Let’s get another $7,095! Okay? I know these are difficult times and there is a lot of uncertainty, but imagine how much more uncertainty there is if you aren’t sure where your meals are coming from.
Make a donation now, and then forward your donation receipt to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will add up all the donations and match them up to $10,000! Let’s double, actually quadruple, the good we can all make together and help get food to people that need it!
As a treat for all of you great folks, here is a picture of our new family dog. His name is Lucky. We just got him this weekend. He is also making a donation to Second Harvest for the match!
