You guys Rock!
Thank you all for everything you do for us! You.re the best! I just left a message on John.s site, and would like to wish everyone there the best of both holidays coming up! I do San Diego for Breast Cancer (and personally lots of other cancers) in about 10 days. Thanks so much for your support and help with getting the word out! You all ROCK! Like my buddy Bill says .feathers up.. He is going through extreme chemo the last few weeks, and I can.t say enough about what a friend he is. Please keep up the good work. If I can help in any way, please let me know. I don.t know when to quit volunteering!
I have communicated in the past with Pete Ruan & Sridhar Nagarajan about our partnership that originated with the volunteers from Pledgepage.com.
Firstly, I noticed your recognition of our event on your site - THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Indeed in 2003, it is our 15th anniversary and we are anticipating a flood of participants once again, when we actively advertise the event in the New Year.
Secondly, I wondered if I could be of a resource to help clean up some of the pages from past participants, especially those that never added information during their participation in the event or someone that hasn't officially registered for the event. I would be happy to give the names and links of the participants that are no longer involved in the event. I would like (if possible) to retain 3-5 sites as good samples of how you can use charity focus/pledgepage to assist them in their fundraising.
I have copied my colleague Charlie Vanderburg, the Event Manager and the two of us can check the site on a regular basis to see if we can be of service to your voluntary staff in keeping things updated when really needed.
I recognize that you are offering a wonderful service and resource to not only participants, but charities. If we can do provide our time to watch the site and help maintain information - we are more than happy to do so.
I do have the new 2003 Climb For Clean Air image that is now on our site and would be happy to forward a jpeg if so desired.
Thank you once again for all that you do!
