So Obama's March haul was $30 million, or a million a day. Sure he's a national candidate, but the people who are giving to him aren't necessarily billionaires. Heck, I've given him like $75. Not a ton of money, but I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Which makes me think...
Does your theater company accept donations online? And does it ask, often enough, for donations? Let's say you get an average of (with big and small donations) $10 a day per month. Or $300 a month. Or around (give or take a day or two) $3600 a year in donations. Let's say you just make that your goal for online donations, barring any additional fund-raisers or ticket sales or selling t-shirts or bake sales or free donated booze parties.
Is that huge? No. Will it help? Yes. How much work do you need to do? Sign up for Network for Good and send out some e-mails.
You are doing this already. Right?
