Snark Mistress Fundraiser Update and Mega-Post

We had a sit-down conference call last night, NFO, Jennifer, and many of the prize donors. We made a few changes, added a few items, and brainstormed, and have rolled out a (hopefully) easier to understand, easier to process format. Plus we've added a couple prizes you might like...

What we've done is to pull everything together into separate, discrete prize packages, identified both by number and - more importantly - by a 3-5 character code (this will be important later). If you are donating so that you can have a chance at winning one of these prizes, this will simplify the process.

Please note: if you have already donated and let us know your choice, you do not need to contact us again.

The prizes are laid out with a package number, a code, the donation needed to be entered in the drawing, and with any other special information contained therein.To participate in this fundraiser, simply make a donation to Tam's tipjar:

(graphic "borrowed" from Matt G.'s post which started it all)

Forward the e-mail receipt you get to Jennifer at jennifer@injennifershead.com with the code or codes of the packages you want in the subject line.

EXAMPLE: if you want a chance on package number one, donate $25  to Tam and forward the receipt to Jen with 'NFO' in the Subject line. If you want to donate and have multiple chances, put all the codes on the subject line - EXAMPLE: you want in on packages 1, 4, and 6 - donate $35, forward the receipt to Jen with 'NFO / ZERC / AMBO' in the subject line."

Do not hesitate to contact me or anyone else in this group if you have any questions about how this works. 

There are currently a grand total of ten prizes, numbers 1 through 10, which are as follows:

I cannot stress enough how proud I am to be part of the community; both for the folks that have donated their time, energy, and talents as well as those who have donated cash. Thank you everyone.

That is all.

I can't put into words just how awesome this is.

Mopar said...

Jay, can I make a small suggestion? When you label your posts for stuff like this and KTKC, could you add a unique label for all posts related to that unique event? It would make it that much easier for people to link to/find all your posts on the topic.

Old NFO said...

Niee pimpage there Jay :-) Thanks for the assist!!!

Fred said...

Are multiple entries for the same package allowed?

Jay G said...

Allowed and encouraged!

Angus McThag said...

Does this mean that NFO has forwarded our entries to Jennifer already or do we have to send her one confirming?

Jay G said...

If you've already sent an entry in, don't re-send. This is for going forward.

Robert said...

An way to do this without using the evil company who shall not be named?

The Jack said...

Robert want an alternate option? Like say sending a check.

Erin's got you covered.

Jennifer said...

Nice job on the pimpage! And yes, I should have the entries already. I am working on getting email confirmations out to everyone.

Andrew said...

Do it the easy way: Donate $85.56 and make the subject "NFO GRIPS VIPER ZERC JACK AMBO JAYG MHI DBD HAT."

Or just round it up to $100 -- easier to balance the checkbook that way.
