Beth Dunn

Congratulations! I loved being a small part of this campaign -- it taught me a lot about online fundraising and the power of networks and small donations. And for a great cause!

Audrie Schaller

Congrats to everyone involved. I figured this was going to be announced when I read Beth's Tweet on "an announcement" at 12:01 a.m. What a great case study this will be. I know that I learned a lot. Thanks for blogging the campaign posts (as well as pulling all of us into the whirling vortex of Beth Kanter's world and its causes!)

Michele Martin

Congratulations, Beth. You have taught us all a lesson about the power of social media and electronic distribution of communication of targeted needs and how individuals can do small acts of kindness that in turn can influence great results.

Laura Whitehead

Congratulations Beth - just shows the power of social media and relationships - and the impact it can all make to support so many people too! Everyone enjoyed every mile of your challenge, participated, supported and no doubt had tears in their eyes in those final seconds...

Michael Hoffman

Beth, you are really great at this. Mazal Tov yet again on a job well done.

This whole competition thing has been a good model for your strengths, and I have given to this worthy cause every time you asked.

But I wonder about all the orgs who went down this road because of the publicity but were so less equipped than you to be successful. I saw lots of questions about this on the PX list and elsewhere and thought to myself, these poor suckers, they are going to spend lots of time putting this together, will get little response, and people like Beth -- with big and active networks -- will eat their lunch. They don't have a chance.

I also wonder if this whole competition thing is sustainable. How many of these could you do before you create fatigue in your network? And, is there a way to get the folks who gave with the urgency of this campaign to have a deeper engagement with the Sharing Foundation?

Would love your thoughts on all of this in another post.

Congratulations. Great news :) A powerful example of personal and networked fundraising.

Margaret Cohen

Congrats Beth. You are truly inspiring. I have a little boy named Harry too, and I think I'll try to get him to do something else besides on the computer besides burn CDs in iTunes...

See you in NOLA
