Today is Friday, June 12, 2009. I expect more than a quarter million people to see the Wheel between June and October 2009, and to answer more than 10,000 questions. The fundraising goal is $35,000. But depending on donations, the entire thing may end early. Having just gambled everything on Wheel Questions, I’m well below water and don’t know whether the project will survive.
When you donate, you need to make a request to get a free thank you gift. Just type into the comment box on the 2nd PayPal page what you would like.
If it’s a card, I’ll send it right away. With the rest, the catch is that I won’t have anything printed up, including the new books, until reaching the $5,000 fundraising mark. My best guess is that will be late July. But I need to be clear that you won’t get your free gift until then, possibly never if the project shuts down. (But we don’t expect that, right?)
Note: you must type what you’d like into the comments box on the PayPal form to get your thank you gift! Or just email Wheel Questions directly.
Here are a few mockups, with real photos to come when I have actual stuff to take photos of.
