A Great New Social Media Tool for fundraising

Hi Everybody, this was another  productive week. I lost another pound so I am down to 240. That is 26 total pounds lost since May 19th. We also raised another $60 this week that put us over $2,100.00

It's the way I raised the $60 that is the best part. Trish Stone from Pathfinders suggested I check out a new fundraising website. It's pretty simple, you load a picture add a description and then it allows you to mass invite people and notify via Twitter, Facebook and your email account. I set up my account in about 15 minutes and generated my first $50 donation in about 3 hours. The next day I generated another $10 donation, so it has been a very useful tool. It allows me to create a street team and people can "vote" for my fundraiser. The more fans I get the more points I get, the more votes I get the more points I get. The points have thresholds for additional donations and this website has a tracking bar on it to keep track of my total donations. So please go to, become a fan, vote for my page and share this with all of your friends.

Thank you all so much for your help,

Together, we can do great things!
