I guess everyone has heard by now about Misha's project for Haiti? This night he sent a letter to everyone who's part of the team.
Dear Awesome Person,
Thank you so much for joining in our Random Acts fundraiser. You, as the salutation above indicates, are an awesome person. I am both moved and impressed that so many of you have become part of our team. We are going to use the money we raise to build a community center in Haiti, to send some aid to Japan, and to continue funding Random Acts in the coming year. As you know, this is a unique opportunity to be a part of the adventure and to be a hands-on participant in helping build a community center in Jacmel, Haiti.
So far, the fundraising is going great. You guys are getting creative, throwing parties, hosting auctions, doing car washes, hitting up your friends and relatives, selling your family heirlooms, pimping out your siblings, whatever it takes. Keep it up!
It is not too late for people to join the campaign, so if you have friends who you think might like to be a part of this, point them in the right direction and get them started too!
As you know, those who raise $5000 or more on their Hope to Haiti Crowdrise page are going to be invited to join us in Jacmel. But we want to make the fundraising process exciting, so we're throwing a few curve-balls your way:
Curve Ball #1
Anyone who raises $1000 will have a ticket with their name on it thrown in a hat for a raffle. Every $1000 you raise gets you another ticket in the hat. $1000 = 1 ticket, $3000 = 3 tickets, $2,890,000 = 2,890 tickets, etc. On May 25, 2011, we will draw one ticket out of the hat, and if your name is on the ticket, we will invite you to join us in Haiti and we will cover your travel and lodging costs so the trip will be 100% free for you.
Curve Ball #2
Anyone who raises over $1000 will automatically receive the following: A mix CD with some of my favorite songs on it, one of my favorite novels with a personal thank-you note written inside, and a signed piece of Random Acts swag.
Curve Ball #3
Who ever raises the absolute mostest on their Crowdrise page, morer even than anyone, whoever has gotten biggerest number of dollars donated will get my iPad and I'll also send you box of homemade fortune cookies and I will write real future-telling fortunes for you and put them inside.
Thank you so much for being a part of our organization. It means the world to me and it will make a real difference in the lives of people who need our help. This is a crazy time in the world; wars and natural disasters seem to be popping up daily. Poverty and inequality are everywhere you look. Rather than throwing our hands up in despair, let’s get together and do what we can. Every little action of kindness or care we take in our lives, every chance we take to spread a little joy or happiness, makes a difference to someone else.
Thank you so much,
Misha Collins On that note I really should come out and pimp my own donation page, which I might have forgotten... I only used it to donate money. I wasn't thinking straight I guess. Every Dollar is needed. So if you can spare a few of those...donate here: www.crowdrise.com/Salyiha or just join the team yourself.
