Giving Thanks for All Who Gave on Giving Tuesday

(system) #1

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We have surpassed our Giving Tuesday goal of $10,000 with the help of 47 contributors. As of 11:00pm, Pacific Time, we raised $12,726. What fun it has been, watching the donations come in from friends near and far. Spectrum exists to create community, and today it felt like we were all pulling together.

Thank you to Jack in Washington, Elaine in California, Rob in Australia, Alisa in Michigan, Les in Maryland, Elmer in Pennsylvania, Harold in California, Richard and Norma in California, Robert in Guam, Charles in Arizona, David in Australia, Richard in Missouri, Marianne in Germany, Brenton from Kansas, Carmen from Alabama, Jana of Washington, Gil from California, Jeff from California, Juli in Idaho, Mark in Ohio, and Gayle in West Virginia. Thank you to everyone who participated.

We received $25 gifts and $3000 donations. We are grateful for each and every one. We sent an ambitious goal of 50 donors. We had 47, and that is what gave it that community feeling. We pulled together.

Your support gives us needed resources as we make our plans for San Antonio. For instance, we just received a quote from a hotel for our 11-day stay in San Antonio for $8470. So today we could say that we paid for the hotel bill, as well as covering some of the travel costs for our reporting team. Thank you for being part of our team, our community.

“Together We Can Make It Happen” is a phrase I learned at my alma mater La Sierra University. And today we did make it happen.

From someone who can barely afford to subscribe to the magazine, I am exceedingly thankful to those more gifted friends who supported Spectrum’s campaign.
