Spring is a-buzz, and we need your help

IMG_1566It’s that time of the year again: the flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and the clippers are buzzing. That’s right – it’s almost time for our annual St. Baldrick’s event, where we and others shave our heads to show solidarity with kids fighting cancer and raise funds for specialized childhood cancer research. (Check out this post if you’d like more info on the organization.)

On May 5th, my wife and I will go under the clippers for the 6th and 7th times, respectively, raising money that directly funds childhood cancer research at one of 368 institutions around the world.

Together we’ve raised over $6,000 and counting for this very worthy cause. We’d love your help in funding this vital research, and every dollar counts. If you’d like to make a secure donation of any size, click the link below with our thanks.

As I’ve said before, you’ll only see this post once each year, and the delivery news and nuggets will be back in a jiffy. Thanks for listening!

A little help?

This blog is dedicated to helping email marketers understand deliverability and how to get mail delivered, but today we’re asking for a bit of help from you. In exactly one month, I (along with my wife) will be going bald in solidarity with kids with cancer. In conjunction with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, we’re raising money that directly funds childhood cancer research at one of 368 institutions around the world.

If you aren’t familiar with St. Baldrick’s, they sponsor events where participants shave their heads to raise funds for childhood cancer research. Affected children and their families attend the events and share their stories, and volunteers run the show. They’re great events and always family-friendly.

If you’re concerned about giving responsibly (and you should be), St. Baldrick’s gives $0.71 of every dollar directly to research facilities, $0.26 goes toward fundraising expenses, and only $0.03 gets used for administrative expenses.

We’ve done this together 4 times and raised over $5,000 (and counting!) for this great organization. Via the link below you can donate securely online, and even anonymously if you’d prefer. Any dollar you can spare is one dollar closer to a cure for childhood cancers.

Thanks for your time. Please donate if you can, or find an event near you and see for yourself why this organization holds a special place in our hearts. You’ll only see this post once each year, and I promise we’ll bring you more email delivery wisdom before you know it.
