Title: You helped us raise $1090 for Toys for Tots! -
Post by: pinchel (Rob) on June 07, 2017, 11:51:28 AM
Raffle winners to be posted soon...

********************************
We've hit $1090 so far with most of it coming from a couple club sponsors and outside supporters. With all the volunteers we have, it would be great if we could bring in some more funds and hit $1500...remember to ask. Thank you!

********************************
Ok, so in lieu of the club committing to helping Randy Miller with his fundraising commitment we would still like to raise money to donate to the Toys for Tots so we have added a link on the forum, and I will post it in other pertinent areas.

If between now and the deadline, which is August 1st, if we raise funds that can help him meet and or exceed his commitment that is required by the event we will update the status.

Last year, funds raised from this event made Christmas happen for over 9700 children! I would like to see if we can at least raise the minimum of $500 between now and the deadline.

If you can donate, please do so, we ask that you make a donation of $10 to $25 but any amount is appreciated. Ask your friends, family, coworkers, your employer...some employers will match donations. If you need donation information for tax purposes please let me know by private messaging me.

 Here is the direct link (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=9BVZT68LM3E9J), let me know if anyone has issues with this link or any of the links I posted.

Hi Rob, thanks for organizing this donation campaign.  I just donated.  BTW, the link in OP of this thread doesn't seem to work, but the one at the top of the website page worked perfectly.

I encourage all AZXC members, and all non-members that are attending Flag2GC (formerly known as "Fat Tire") to donate something.  Every little bit helps!

Thanks for your donation Ted! You helped push us passed the halfway mark! And yes I also encourage everyone to reach out, remember this is money is going to Toys for Tots.

Also, thanks for letting me know that link wasn't working.

We received a product donation from Rockauto!

We are still short of our $500 goal, every little bit helps people. For the volunteers, I ask that you please share the donation link. If you need an email, I can send it to you. Donations are 100% tax deductible.

Ask friends, family, coworkers, employers (many employers will match your donations) it doesn't hurt to ask. Years past, AZXC has raised upwards of $1000 in cash to donate. We haven't done that since I've been in the club and since we are hopefully going to be more involved in this event more and more, we should try and get back to raising cash donations.

Ok, some exciting news for those of you who donated. We topped out at $1090, not including any swag or other raffle tickets purchased individually. When I set this up, the intention was to help our club get back to where it was when Marshall started it up. Folks were donating time, money, and hard work and they still were able to fundraise and bring in cash to donate.

We were able to that again this year, and I hope more of you can volunteer and help fundraise every year, even if you do not attend.

With that said, those of you who have made it in past years know that they always do a raffle at the end camp and the same guys win almost everything. There's a reason why, and if you weren't aware or realized it, it's because those winners had lots of raffle tickets which they earned by fundraising. They ride, and they ask everyone they know to donate while raising thousands of dollars from folks who aren't even there at the event.

This year, we attempted to do the same and we hit our minimum goal of $500 which came as a surprise to me. Then we had a few businesses donate which I was completely blown away by their support. We then pooled our fundraising efforts into sponsoring a rider, Randy Miller. My plan is to do this every year! Of course our intention is not to get anything out of it other than to do go, but the good folks who put the event together make it so folks will keep donating by offering raffles prizes for their efforts.

I know this is long winded so I'm going to try and wrap this up by saying Randy Miller biked the whole way and ended up winning a good share of raffle prizes that we are going to give back to those who donated cash. Our pooled cash donations were turned in at the Happy Hour on July 27th. We will be assigning tickets in $10 increments for the items he turned over to us. We sent Flag2GC t-shirts to our sponsors who donated cash and we thank them so much. We also thank those sponsors who donate product and gift certs.

Encouragement for next year! Stay tuned for raffle details... to be posted here!
