First, a note. I posted yesterday about our push to raise a little cash to give to Coach Budke court. I set the mark at $250 thinking “that would be a great amount to write a check for and it seems like we could feasibly reach that over a few days.”
Well, we reached it in one and a half hours and the support hasn’t stopped yet. We hit the $400 mark late last night so I’ve reset our goal to $500. We have until Saturday to get $89 more and I promise I won’t reset it again.
Oh yeah…and you guys are the bomb. Nolo and I were texting all day yesterday about how blown away we were that somebody other than us actually cared about this kind of thing. So thank you for the money, thank you for understanding what we’re doing, and thank you for telling your friends.
It’s going to be pretty awesome to write Shelley Budke a letter in a few weeks and say “hey, I have this blog and my readers are awesome and together we all raised $500 to donate for Kurt’s court.”
That’s going to mean something, so thank you.
On to the bullets…
