Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

Week 3 Update

Hi All, it’s been another good week; my weight is down and our pledged donations are up.

I’m down another 2.9 lbs this week, bringing my total lost to just shy of 10 lbs.

Ten pounds is just scratching the surface of my goal, but it is an early milestone.  If fortune shines well this week, I will cross two milestones:  the 10 lb mark and the 300 lb weight mark.

Speaking of milestones, we broke the $2,000 mark in pledged donations this week!   Hopefully that number will continue to grow as my own weight continues to shrink.

Not Sure What to Pledge?

Several people have asked  me what an “acceptable” level of support is.

No amount is too big or too small!  Donors have pledged anywhere from $0.25/lb to $5/lb.

Donors have also used their imagination when pledging. Here are a couple interesting examples of pledges I’ve received so far:
 One donor pledged $1/lb but only at a minimum of 50 lbs lost.
 Another pledged $1/lb up to 50 lbs, then $2/lb from 51-75 lbs, then $3/lb from 76-100 lbs for a total potential donation of $175.
 Some have instead pledged prayers and also spread the word through their own prayer and charity groups.

As I said in the beginning, I think the sky’s the limit for where we can take TS2012 together.  Likewise, the sky’s the limit for ways you can support!

If you are interested in joining the cause with a per-pound donation, or if you just have any questions, please send an email to tipthescales2012@gmail.com.
