Putting the Fun in to our Fundraiser
Our current totals for the 2017 FAN Fundraiser are $21,064 from 70 donors.
Paul writes, “Thanks again to some wonderfully generous donations from our loyal supporters, we continued our momentum yesterday. In all, 16 people added $2000, which was doubled by one of our super angels. Clearly, people like to see their donations doubled in this way and so we have asked a second super angel to pledge to double the first $1000 donated today.”
You can watch these numbers grow over the next few days via our webpage (www.Fluorideaction.net) -see the first revolving masthead.
It is urgent that these totals continue to grow because our ambitious goals by midnight Dec 31 are $200,000 from 1000 donors. We need that amount to continue to pay our full-time management team: Jay Sanders (San Francisco), Stuart Cooper (NH), Chris Neurath (MA) and Ellen Connett (Binghamton, NY) and to raise enough to pay for a full-time director.
Our mini-goal is $120,000 by midnight Christmas Eve.
This a tough challenge but we are determined to have a lot of fun doing it. To this end we have appointed two FUN raisers to our fundraising team: Dawna and Jay. Those of you who came to the FAN conference will remember Dawna, she was the “cheeky lady” who helped Paul persuade the audience to part with their cash in our auction. You will also remember Jay- FAN’s very own jazz musician.
Amongst the FUN they are brewing up (including advice on how to get fluoride free beer) is 1) An online Auction and 2) for those who live in the bay area, Jay and his band will offer their services free for your own private party for a donation of $1,000. Imagine that: your own Fluoride fighting band for your own fluoride fighting party! And Jay is also planning to ask other jazz musicians from around the country to do the same. Stay TUNED. Sweet notes to get the bank notes!

For a donation of $31–add $5 if you live outside the US-we will send you a 100% organic cotton t-shirt in light blue, as pictured above (you can also click here to view).
