    Time for the 2018 LiveSTRONG / 24 Foundation solicitations to get cranked up!

    So, I've been uncharacteristically quiet on the cancer fundraising front this year.

    Primarily that's because I've gotten a ton of new work in this year and I've been scrambling around like crazy. But, we're now approximately two months out from the ride, so I'm gonna pick up the pace a little!

    Last year was our best year ever, with $10,585 raised directly for my ride and over $3K raised for Buck Ranson from AGSers.

    You guys were fantstic with your generosity. Ursus, IBY, The Rev, Southern Bison, AG1 and a number of others went above and beyond the call of duty with their support. I didn't think we'd do that well, but you guys surprised the hell out of me.

    Thank YOU!

    This year, we're off to our best start, ever. But, I could still use y our help. We've raised more than $5K already, but the next big milestone is that we're closing in on $75K since we started this back in 2010.

    Right now, we're just $1388 away from $75K. If we can get to $85K this year, that'll leave just $15K to raise next year as we try to come to a $100,000 total, cumulatively raised.

    We're calling this "The Drive to Seventy Five!".

    Any help you could provide in helping us to get there would be greatly appreciated!

    Re: Time for the 2018 LiveSTRONG / 24 Foundation solicitations to get cranked up!

    Okay....so....we've generally done challenges each year to try to raise some money....I generally ride wearing different shirts from FCS schools if they raise more than $200. So far this year, I"m riding in shirts from NDSU. Northwestern State and Steven F. Austin, in addition to my McNeese Cowboys...

    That's a pretty basic challenge...

    So...it's been pointed out on some of the political threads that I'm not particularly kind and respectful to our more liberal friends in the threads..

    Accordingly, in an effort to promote collegial relations AND to raise money, I propose a Liberal vs Conservative fundraising challenge.

    We're two months out from the ride, exactly.

    So...over the next two months if our liberal friends on this board raise $1,000.00 in aggregate, I'll be nice to the liberals on the threads for the next six months, with two caveats: If I'm attacked first, I get to respond to every OThER slight, without the gloves.

    The second caveat is where it gets fun....If the Conservatives on the board raise $2500.00 BEFORE the liberals get to $1,000.00, I can continue interacting with liberals the way I always have.

    The folks at Northwestern State will tell you that we did a similar thing over the first three years of the ride that involved me refraining from using my favorite perjorative term for them. In fact, it was so successful that they actually BOUGHT the right to use the word from me in 2013 and I haven't used it since.

    Now, if neither goup gets to their Goal before we ride, then things stay as they are, except that I have to be nice to any liberal donating at least $100.00, for the next six months...

    This could get fun

    If you donate, there's a message box on the donation page, Put the name of somebody you'd like for me to ride for, and then at the end, just put Liberal or Conservative, based on your personal affiliation. We'll tally them up and let the chips fall where they may

    You guys game??

    It could, but The Rev gave an equal amount, that just means that they only have to raise $500 while conservatives still have to raise $2K..

    Is anybody having trouble with the field on the donation site where you enter in the credit card #. All other fields will accept input but I cannot get my CC entered on the site. I have used both Chrome and IE on my laptop. Maybe I will try it with my phone.
