It was sooo exciting in the Chatbox last night as Chasters rallied to come from behind to win the 3rd and final #CharityTuesday for yet another $1,000 bonus to be awarded to Operation Smile.
Congratulations especially to BlueBird for contributing the bulk of the $880 needed to overtake the all-day leader (now second place finisher) in the last photo-finish 30 minutes of the contest. Chasters cheered each other on and put their money where their mouth is by rallying to raise the funds needed and win it! I’m so proud to be a Chaster right now, it’s truly amazing to have witnessed it, not to mention heart-stopping, suspenseful, and oh so exciting.
At 11:30pm, Operation Smile was in second place with $2,280 raised versus the leader at $2,750. Some of us had already thrown in the towel, ready to take the second place prize. But BlueBird rallied Chasters in the chatbox to raise $880 at literally the eleventh hour, contributing $500 of her own money, and winning it for Charice and Operation Smile!
For the third consecutive week, our dedicated, loyal Chasters community came together in a tremendous show of support for Charice in her role as International Youth Ambassador for Operation Smile. Did I say, IT WAS AMAZING! Huge, heartfelt, and deserving THANK YOU’S and APPRECIATION go especially to the gal of the moment, BlueBird, and also to mecela, bosio, noellen, arch, eddie, ozzie, marcus, anonymous chasters and lurkers who donated, and those who cheered on and offered words of encouragement in the chatbox.
Their effort not only won the #CharityTuesday contest for the third straight week, but also achieved and surpassed the $5,000 fundraising goal. Charice’s fruitcake now has total donations of $5,240 thanks to all of you PLUS an additional $1,000 which Charice has contributed personally to CM and CDiva fruitcakes for the benefit of Operation Smile.
We are on our way to winning $20,000 for Operation Smile, with two days remaining for the contest. So keep on truckin’ – please continue to donate and regift the fruitcake!
