As some of you know I've been trying to raise funds for UPAF by vowing to ride 50-miles for the Miller Lite Ride for the Arts. I've been playing around with using social media to set a substantial fundraising goal of $1,000, but still need to pump up my efforts in the 6 weeks before the June 7 ride.
Well, my use of social media for fundraising caught the eye of Spreenkler, a local social media agency and they invited me to a TweetUp (meeting of Twitter users) they are hosting tonight for UPAF. I originally was on the fence about going, as I have Creative Council for FUEL Milwaukee tonight where it will be announced that I am 2009-10 Team Lead for the Healthy & Green Team. HOWEVER, @spreenkler just tweeted that all proceeds from tonight's event will go to @mcarnold's fundraising efforts. WAIT A SECOND...HEY THAT'S ME!!!
So, I'm going. I'll be there around 7:45 PM at Fanatics. Requested cover is $10. There's drink specials and karaoke. You should be there. Details are here: http://www.meetup.com/
If you can't make it tonight, I hope you consider donating to my fundraising efforts. (Thanks to those who already have!). Even $5 or $10 can make a huge difference. My fundraising page is http://www.firstgiving.com/
See you tonight!
