6/26/15 Update: Today Griffin and Athena are excited to announce that we have reached our $15,000 goal, which marks the end of the 2015 Sterner Match Challenge! A huge thank you to everyone who donated and to the Sterner family for their generous $15,000 match donation!
6/19/15 Update: There are a little over two weeks left until the end of the Sterner Match Challenge, and we’re almost to the top of the meter! Athena and Griffin are happy and so thankful for the generosity of our friends. Until we reach $15,000, all donations will be matched by the Sterner family.
6/12/15 Update: Griffin and Athena are happy to see the meter almost full! Thanks to our incredibly generous supporters, we’re less than $1,000 away with a little under a month left in the Sterner Match Challenge!
6/5/15 Update: Today marks one month until the end of the Sterner Match Challenge, and we’re over 90% of the way to our $15,000 goal. Athena and Griffin give a big fluttery thank you to all our friends who have helped so far! We depend on donations to keep the birds happy and healthy, and every gift means a great deal.
The next $1,245 in donations will be matched by the Sterner family, and that will mark the end of the challenge. With the match challenge drawing to a close, there has never been a better time to donate for maximum impact!
5/29/15 Update: Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we’re only $3,000 away from our new $15,000 match goal. Athena and Griffin are puffed up with happiness at everyone’s kindness! The challenge ends on July 5th, so if you missed donating before we reached our $10,000 goal, there’s still time to donate and have your donation matched!
5/22/15 Update: After hearing how quickly we had reached the $10k goal, the Sterner family graciously offered to raise the goal to $15k! So now, if we can raise another $5k by July 5th, the entire $15,000 with be DOUBLED! Griffin and Athena are so amazed by everyone’s generosity!
5/22/15 Update: It’s an exciting Friday for Griffin and Athena because we’ve reached our $10,000 goal over a month before the match deadline! Griffin and Athena can’t remember a time we raised $10k this quickly. Since we’ve reached $10k, the Sterner family will match that amount, doubling our total funds raised. Thank you to everyone who helped us get this far!
We’ve reached our $10k goal, but every bit of help counts. Donations go toward big expenses – like the brand new stainless steel cages we recently purchased – and also daily necessities to help keep Griffin and Athena healthy and happy. We depend on your support, and we’re incredibly grateful for every contribution we receive!
5/15/15 Update: Over half way there!! Griffin and Athena are amazed at the incredible outpouring of support! Please consider helping us get the rest of the way to the $10K goal!
5/8/15 Update: One week in and we are a quarter of the way to reaching our $10K goal! Griffin and Athena love watching the meter fill up! Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed so far!
Once again, Andy Sterner is generously matching all donations to The Alex Foundation received between now and July 5th, 2015 up to a total of $10,000!
But there is a catch! The matching is contingent on The Alex Foundation receiving the entire $10,000 in that time! If we fall short of the goal, we lose the whole $10,000 match!
So please help if you can! Every little bit helps us reach our goal!
Please copy this and send it to all your friends. Post it anywhere you like. The more people who know, the better!
