Donation Update – Running for a Cure!

My first month with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training has been hectic. Being in the Real Estate Business gave me one big advantage over some of my other teammates. Since being a Realtor involves a fair amount of marketing I already had systems in place to deal with mass mailings. The first week I spent composing a letter and printing my initial mailing to 150 friends and past clients. Concurrently I submitted a press release to a few local newspapers and both acted fast in publishing the news about my fundraising effort.Donations Progress - First Month

Since I am so heavily involved in on-line activities I was surprised by the reluctance of some people to contribute using a credit card on the secure donation site but learned during my second week at the TNT fund-raiser workshop that we should include a return envelope in our mailing. My second batch of letters went out to 150 relatives, neighbors and acquaintances along with a return envelope but the response rate was not substantially different. So far it looks good for reaching my Goal by April 1…

With all this fund-raising activity and the rainiest February on record I have managed to run 100 miles since joining the team. I also finally learned how to produce a YouTube show. Hope this inspires donations!

Donate Button

Please help by making a tax-deductible donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A secure web-site accepts credit card contributions or you can email for postal mailing instructions if you’d prefer to send a check.
