A Brief Fundraising Update
Things have slowed down a bit on the fundraising front, but I’ll be making another big push in a couple of weeks. Fortunately, the chemo break has the added benefit of reducing costs a bit. At the moment, we’re still ahead of costs, with around $115,000 raised and nearly $87,000 in costs that have come in so far. Expected costs between now and August 1 still exceed what we’ve raised so far, though once we step up the fundraising efforts in June with new goods in the webstore, I’m confident we’ll raise the rest of the money that’s needed.
At the moment, we’ve got a bunch of raffle items available at the Poop Strong webstore, including some fantastic items donated by Hill’s Kitchen such as signed cookbooks from noted chefs Mario Batali and Spike Mendelsohn and a book from Doug Mack. And there’s more on the way, as we try to come up with as many ways as possible to raise money to cover the costs of my treatment. Some new t-shirt designs, a poster, a music compilation, and raffles for crocheted goodies, baseball tickets, writing consultations, a customized musical arrangement, and more coming to the site in June.
