Remember Not to Forget: Update

In Family, Holidays, Places, Places & Spaces on July 3, 2008 at 10:25 am

On Monday, I told you about my idea to offer 15 of my songs for $10 to raise the $3,000 Megan and I need to close on our house this month. Here’s an update on how things are going:

  • Good news: So far, we’ve received $286.24, which is almost 10%. Several folks have given (all cheerfully, as far as we know), with gifts ranging from $10 to $100, and it appears a handful have even chosen to download the songs. Thank you.
  • More good news: Our closing date has been moved up from the 18th to the 15th of July. That’s right: we move in 12 days, which is better for us all the way around…except for the fact that we have to write a check earlier than anticipated.

If we divide the remaining $2731.76 across the next 12 days, we need $228/day to come in by the 15th. If you still want to help, let’s just say sooner is better than later.

Three easy ways to buy:

  1. For those who would like to pay online, go to Revolution MoneyExchange, log in, click “Send Money,” and enter my email address (cmdunham [@] (Note: If you don’t have an RME account, it’s a nice thing to have; just click below to sign up – it’s free – and we’ll also get a $10 referral fee.)
    Refer A Friend using Revolution Money Exchange
  2. For those who would prefer to pay by PayPal (sorry: non-credit, non-debit payments only), log in, click “Send Money,” and enter Megan’s email address (halfpinthouse [at]
  3. For those who would rather just send something, please make a check out to Craig Dunham and mail to 8827 Litzsinger Road, Brentwood, MO, 63144.
One more thing that would be helpful is, if you have a blog, would you consider an endorsement and link? We haven’t had much of either of these, and word-of-mouth and scale would seem to be important in making this idea work. A big thanks to Tim and Kerry (and anyone else who linked to us that we don’t know about) for their linking efforts already.        

I’ll post another update on our progress sometime next week. In the meantime, thanks for considering our opportunity, and have a festive and freeedom-filled Fourth of July weekend.

  1. Just to let you know I started signing up with Revolution Money Exchange June 30th. And because of their safty precautions I still can not give until MAYBE tomorrow. I will use PayPal tomorrow if the account is still not active.

  2. Good reminder, Jeff. Revolution MoneyExchange does take a couple of days (on their end – not yours) to set up because of their security stuff (which is why we like it). Don’t rush to use PayPal; we’re still in good shape if it comes in next week. Thanks.
