We’re not just running, we’re sprinting!
What word should I use to describe the response to yesterday’s offer? Awesome? Amazing? Overwhelming!? At the time of writing this post, we have had 18 legitimate email inquiries, and have replied to several others on Facebook. One of our readers commented that our offer is a great idea and that we should run with it. Well, we’re not just running, we’re sprinting!
I spent hours yesterday responding to inquiries, and started right back up again this morning. I sent an email to the owner of the boat that we’re after today as well. My goal today is to somehow create a method so that supporters can pay, but also feel secure. That may involve creating a GoFundMe type of online campaign. I briefly looked at that and was not impressed by the fact that they take 7.9% of contributions, but it may be the best way. I am open to suggestions.
We also need to create an agreement so that everyone knows what to expect, and feels safe and comfortable. This campaign is solely to facilitate the purchase of the larger boat. We either go small, and do it ourselves, or go a bit bigger and share. With the response that we’ve had, I think I know what everyone is hoping for. Thank you!!!
