I was updating the perks at the Evil For Julie fundraisers. I saw the numbers.
3330 [ETA April 16 – $3425] for the Writer Edition.
6705 [ETA April 16 – $7545] for the Reader Edition.
If my math is correct (and unlike Tony Stark’s, it usually isn’t, but I digress), that puts us at $
10,035 $10,970 for both campaigns.
You know, when we were pulling this together and deciding on a target number for our goal, I made the comment that if we raised $10,000, I would make a video of me dancing like a freak (I can’t dance…no, really, I can’t. I just wiggle my butt and flail my arms.) at various Oregon Coastal landmarks within driving distance of me.
I said it sarcastically. Because, you know…$10,000? Yeah, right. We’d be lucky to make half that, but we decided to go for it anyway. $5000 was lofty. $10,000 was laughable.
Sarcasm or no, I said it, in front of witnesses. As such, the video will get made. It will be finished and uploaded sometime in May, after all this is over.
Just so you know, I made another comment about our fundraiser goals, and this one is on the Internet, WHICH IS FOREVER.
The price? $50,000. The perk? I will karaoke Wilson Phillips’ “Hold On,” get it on film, and post it to the Internet.
Try reaching that one, evildoers. I DARE YOU.
ETA: Upon conferring with my enablers, I have agreed to do the same with Air Supply’s “All Out of Love” at the $25,000 mark. Because Dean Winchester. BRING IT.
