WE DID IT!
All of us at ASBSU are overjoyed and humbled by all of the donations and support that we have received over the last four weeks which has enabled us to SURPASS our goal of $5,000 today!
I personally have been overwhelmed by the contributions made during this fundraising process- from our supporters at KTVB who aired this story on the news about our project last week, to the students who donated to receive helmet cart rides to class, to my hair dresser who gave up her $40 tip to support this initiative, and every person in between- you all are the reason why our Broncos will now have the food and school supplies they need to succeed in and outside of the classroom.
We would especially like to recognize and thank the generous $500 donations we received from Robert Breedlove, The Communication and Marketing Department at Boise State (used to match donations), Jay and Therese George, and Luke Jones which will help to ensure the sustainability of this project for our students.
None of what we have accomplished today would have been possible without you, and we are so grateful for your support and kind contributions.
ONE FINAL PUSH!
With 3 DAYS left of our fundraiser, we are making one final push to the finish line. We asked our Twitter followers what they'd be most willing to pay money to see and the results are in... our loyal supporters want to see Vice President- Gabe Payne- get a tattoo! Here's how it works. If we can raise $300 more dollars by Thursday at 11:59pm, Gabe has agreed to get a tattoo (artwork and placement TBD). But there's more! If we raise $350 by Thursday at 11:59pm, our Ethics Officer, Ben Kizer, will ALSO get a tattoo, and if we raise $400 by Thursday at 11:59pm... I will have to break the news on speaker phone to Ben's dad.
Thank you to all who have donated and supported us this far, we truly are so thankful for the warm, gracious and compassionate community of Boise State supporters, faculty, staff and students. Thank you for helping to keep our Broncos, #FullBroncos!
