I consider myself fairly good at fundraising. I consider myself reasonable at building towards a goal. But where my “sweet spot” is is in getting little £10 and £20 donations to add up alongside spare change. I like the mantra of lots of people giving little bits to equal one major impact. If this were a marketing exercise I would say it is all about the tribe, and I like big tribes.
Yet, for some strange reason, I’m getting anonymous £100 donations.
I have three of them.
On a good fundraising campaign I sometimes stumble across one random unknown donation. But three? And of a significant size? That’s never happened.
Do I want this to stop? No. Absolutely not. If there are one or more people out there who feel like contributing to my cause in the memory of two incredible men I WILL NOT STOP YOU.
I cannot help but think that I’ve got a bit of supernatural intervention floating about this current success. If that’s the case, Uncle Steve and Mike are already off to some amazing things in their afterlives.
And if you are one of those people who have decided to donate and remain a mystery, thank you.
Thank you thank you thank you thank you.
