We've received an update from the folks over at Six Degrees. Last month, Claymates helped raise over $41,000 for the Bubel Aiken Foundation through this great initiative. Actor Kevin Bacon also donated $10,000 to the foundation.
Mr. Bacon's conversation with BAF Cheief Operating Officer Kristy Barnes is now available at SixDegrees.org. Kristy also posted her story on the Six Degrees blog:
We [Bubel Aiken Foundation] are blessed to have many faithful supporters who are connected through several message boards. Once we established our badge through a volunteer’s help and then put it up on our “Approved Fundraiser” page, the word spread quickly. Daily updates, encouragement, and advice flowed freely. The end of the drive happened to coincide with our annual “Champions of Change” gala and the fever of the drive led to even more anticipation for this highly-anticipated event. We were truly blown away by the final totals and are appreciative of our supporters’ passion which translated into funds that will help us to accomplish our mission.
