TdotTO Fundraiser Update for Toronto Food Bank and Heart & Stroke Foundation
Only 10 t-shirts made.
Custom info on each t-shirt with Twitter handle.
What is TdotTO? Back on December 15th I started a Twitter Fundraiser for 10 straight days until December 25th Christmas Day. I was going to giveaway 10 t-shirts to the highest bidder on Twitter every night at 10pm. I decided to do this fundraising because Twitter has given so much to me personally that it was my way of giving back to the community. I selected 2 charities dear to my heart with the Daily Bread Food Bank to feed Toronto locals and the Heart & Stroke Foundation. In the 10 days the Twitter community raised $1,260.00. This meant that each charity would receive $630.00. The Toronto Twitter community is truly amazing. There are so many good people and I commend those that made a donation to the TdotTO Fundraiser.
I just received the tshirts recently so this is an update for you and those that donated. Unfortunately the process took longer than expected but it has been completed. The total amount has been deposited to both charities and everyone that donated shall receive a tax receipt for the full amount. Proof and payment will be showcased here as soon as I received final authorization. Tshirts will be shipped shortly.
Proof of deposit to Daily Bread FoodBank. H&SF only gives a confirmation/authorization number so the proof of purchase will not be shown here until invoice arrives. This will be updated.
The following are some of the donors: @rosalesj @avalen1 @iamjeffmiranda @ChocolaChocola1 @TaylorNVFerri @AcuraSherway @HotTorontoDeals This is not the complete list of people because they want to be anonymous. On a side note I also want to "Thank" Evoke Salon for donating funds to the TdotTO as well.
On a final note, I've learned a lot from this experience and happy that we are able to give back to the community as a group. I look forward to doing this again in 2012. I'm also looking at trying to get the donation group together for a lunch/dinner so we can all meet up. If you have any suggestion please let me know. Thanks again to everyone including you for tweeting and reading this message. As I read a tweet recently on my stream, " Sometimes a small thing you do can mean everything in another person's life. " You've all made a difference so "Thank You".
