Maggie Fundraising: Saturday Edition

(The beautiful Blueberry Baby comes from a family blog in Kent, England.)

LIVE From the GNB Blueberry Pancake Desk...

We are two-thirds there. Hot diddly-damn.

And over Christmas and Boxing Day.

Your generosity of spirit astounds me. Y'all are AMAZING people.

Sunday and Monday I'll tell you the inside scoop of bigtime fundraising.

Today is Saturday: $200, $100, $50, $20, $10, $5, so mix and match.

Saturday for most blogs (for sure at GNB) is the lowest volume day.

Thus we'll be brief.

We only need $200 in SUBSCRIPTIONS. Our GNB core is handling $800. We know times are hard. People are losing jobs, being foreclosed, getting sick. The economy sucks. This is ugly.

Maggie lost her job two months ago. Last month she went hungry for five days.

We're asking you to subscribe even at five or ten dollars if that's the monthly amount you can commit. If ten people commit to $20, $10, or $5, whatever works in their life, that averages $100 monthly for Maggie.

Every subscription means food, rent, electricity and medicine for Maggie.

Every subscription matters to Maggie.

YOU, literally YOU make the difference. YOU are the difference in Maggie having food, water, a roof over her head, electricity, a telephone, and medicines she needs. YOU matter. Whatever amount, small or large, you can kick in EVERY month, even if it's only five bucks, that GENUINELY makes a fracking difference. It's not for someone you don't know; it's for Maggie.

Tomorrow and Monday as we push through this last third, I'll coach y'all on writing effective fundraising posts.

Today, please click and SUBSCRIBE to Maggie Jochild's Meta Watershed:
$200, $100, $50, $20, $10, $5, or in any combination.

Only $200 in subscriptions to go!

Thank you.
