Dear Friend of
I hope you'll contribute $100 or $500 or whatever you can to help us reach the $15,000 minimum total for our plan to run an ad in the Washington Post.
As of yesterday, we've raised about $14,500 total (including the original $10,000 donation), but we're having to follow up with some donors to clarify the intended use of their donations. Therefore, we need to raise about $1,500 more to be very confident that we've reached our minimum target.
Additionally, since we're now aiming for $15,000, we plan to run these ads in the online version of the Washington Post, instead of the print version.
Please keep in mind that only funds donated specifically for this purpose will be spent on the ad.
Also, we received some complaints about the quality of the graphics. I agree they could use improvement. We didn't want to spend too much time upgrading the graphics unless we found enough financial support out there to make it happen.
Donors have responded. So, if we get at least $500 over our $15,000 threshold, we'll pay for more professional graphics.
We've already identified a designer who can add improved animated Flash graphics to our ad.
Please donate now, and type "wall of shame ad" in the comments section. Please remember to type "wall of shame ad" so we don't have to take the time to follow up and make sure that's what you wanted.
Also please forward this note to your friends and ask them to donate.
