Wonder if we should move to Venmo or do they do similar practice? 

I'm not sure. If anyone has any recommendations let me know!

I can't help but feel super bummed for Mark. He was pry really pumped to get back out there again this year and now he's stuck at home in lockdown again. I truly hope he can kick this.

Fookin A.

How bout every contributor gets to attach a tiny message? Would make it a bit sweeter if he got to read a couple of short lines from us

225 characters is all it lets you do on his donation thing. I could link him somewhere though?

hell yeah.

Just a link to this thread and whoever contributed should post something short and sweet here.

You organized all this stuff, asking to have a quick look at your forum is not asking too much and I don't see such a good man not clicking the link.

If we choose to continue this, which we should, we can find another avenue, or donate direct individually to Mark (send proof of donation to get entered for the prizes and be sure to reference blink online)

Have you decided yet which approach would be best to keep this going until the end of the 30 days?

How do you feel about starting a thread on the blink section where everyone just leaves a little message for him? The messages will have to be short and concise, not a novel, so he can read them if he wants to (and he won't have to go through 8 full pages)

No I haven’t. But I think we could just start posting Mark’s direct link and say post or email us proof of donation of at least $10 (including blink online shoutout!) to be eligible for prizes for the next however many days are left.

Sorry I have to cut the PayPal one after the goal was reached. Kind of a bummer, but it’s silly to let them take that big of a cut AND expose me to taxable income personally that isn’t truly income.

The idea was to bring it all together under blink onlines name, and I think we accomplished that. But we can continue the drive just the same. Still keep a total tally and send the donations referencing the boards.

Thoughts?

Sounds good to me. Cut any post that isn’t on topic and try to keep the messages short?

Yes, twitter length messages should be fine, I'm sure he would appreciate them more than long winded messages.

Sure, that makes sense.

Maybe we should come up with a new goal amount and create a graphic to show our progress.

We'd need to keep tab on how much was donated through this board. I'd love to know what we all accomplished together

and maybe adjust our prizes to encourage more donations?

5k and I give away both guitars?

Except for a few people from discord and twitter, it makes sense to end this here because the 95% percent of that money comes from us.

Then we can start a new goal for all the other people who follow our social media accounts, but we won't use Paypal because no one wants personal tax repercussions for Ghent.
