As you may or may not recall, last year’s DonorsChoose fundraiser featured a few… unusual offers. At one point late in the proceedings, I offered to read and review a New Atheist screed for $1000 in new donations. And, since I had previously said that I would rather stab myself with a fork than read The God Delusion, I said I would stab myself with a fork for $750 in new donations.
I’m already offering a couple of aspirational incentives– custom dog dialogues or a copy of the book-in-progress– but I feel like I ought to have something to offer for passing the big milestones in this year’s challenge. So, I’ll throw this out to the audience:
What should I offer as a donation incentive if we reach the stated goal of $6,000?
There are limits– I’m not shaving my head or getting a tattoo or anything like that– but I’m open to suggestions, here. If there’s something I could reasonably do or produce that would make a good incentive for passing the challenge goal, leave a comment suggesting it. If I get an idea that I like, I’ll make an official announcement on the 15th.
And while you’re thinking about it, why not make a donation?
