This evening, I received an inquisitive e-mail from an anonymous reader with regard to my 3rd Annual Scouting NY fund-raising drive:
Hmmm. An interesting question. How to put a value on content you’re used to getting for free?
I’ve thought long and hard about it, and I think the only way is to compare the enjoyment you get from Scouting NY to products you buy without much thought. In other words, if you get as much enjoyment out of one of the following as you do an entire year of original content from Scouting NY, perhaps that’s an appropriate donation amount? Below, a few suggested comparisons:
In all seriousness, I’m not kidding when I say ANY amount counts, from $1 to $10 to $20 and beyond. If every reader simply gave a few bucks, there is no question that we’d not only reach the $15k goal, but double or even triple it. Thank you in advance!
And thank you to all who have donated so far. Seriously, it means the world to me.
If you enjoyed reading this post, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? The goal is $50,000, and to date, 1,601 Scouting NY readers have donated $33,989! Just $5 or $10 can make a difference - AND you get this snazzy Scouting NY sticker/magnet as a Thank-You gift! Click here to donate today!
