Remember the ethical bribe I announced back on November 16, 2012? Well, last night, I recieved one of those wonderful emails from the PCRF telling me what our donations have done. I know it’s somewhat helpful, but I really wish we could have raised more. I mean I don’t know if I can ask for less that $1, it just wouldn’t be worth the effort that is involved in forming these campaigns. All-in-all, we raised $589.92 primarily via Twitter, but I can tell you now, certain individuals donated the requested $1 several times because they were happy to help the kids of Gaza. I truly respect these individuals for supporting me and the kids of my country in their time of need. I truly hope more of you will join me in my up coming campaigns.
Ok, enough of my whining, let’s have a look at some pictures:
In addition to the many injured children they are treating, the money we have sent has helped them get the medicines they use, the medical missions that have already been in (and are traveling to) Gaza, and very importantly, the distribution of winter clothing and supplies to poor and affected children to prepare them for the coming rains and cold. The pictures above show the first group of kids in the central area (four main refugee camps) of the Gaza Strip getting their donations. Are you smiling yet? If not, let me show you something pretty cool.
I got a letter from Steve Sosebee; President & CEO of the PCRF stating that for each dollar we donated, they are getting a sixty-dollar return in value. Let’s do the math: US$589.92 x US$60 (return in value) = US$35,395.2
I think that pretty much makes my day. And if you joined in, it should most definitely put a huge smile on your face. Not bad at all for a minor Twitter campaign.
I look forward to future campaigns, and the support of my wonderful followers. Thanks guys!
