So far we’ve raised $255.00 dollars in on-line donations. This is good, but I know we can do better. Help support the people who keep the trails you hike and run on in good condition. If you need incentive beyond that consider the following:
- If you donate $35 dollars or more you get a free one year membership with the WTA. In particular this gives you easy access to the trail reviews and guides on their web site.
- Your donation is tax deductible. WTA is a 501(c)(3) organization and every dollar you give is one less you’ll have to give to the tax man next year.
- You’ll be helping Some Guy who needs a new Pulaski. As some one who’s spent much time fixing trails let me tell you that Some Guy will appreciate the new tool you’ll help buy for him. Seriously, spend a summer knocking out root stumps, pulling down trail burm, and chopping out dead fall from last winter and you’ll soon understand how amazing that $35 tool really is!
And just in case you’re one of those people who can’t or won’t do something unless its amuzing I offer up an ammendment to induce you to help me raise the cash. The first person who donates $100 will transform the hike or run of their choice from the WTA 2009 Hike-a-Thon to the WTA 2009 Hike-a-Thong. That’s right! You donate $100 clams to the WTA and you get everything above, plus an autographed 8 x 10″ photo of me running some trail in a thong. Let the blackmail begin!
