I honestly don't know how people did fundraising before the internet. I mean, I email people, I post about my ride on social networking sites, people donate online - what did people do before this? Send out actual letters? Wait for people to snail-mail donations? Bug people at the office more? Do math themselves to keep track of it all?
Well, in that environment, I definitely would have had to start fundraising sooner. But I'm actually almost there! Help push me over the edge in the fight against MS! I am two days away from one of the hardest rides I do every year, but a weekend of discomfort is nothing compared to what Multiple Scerosis does to people for a lifetime, and my riding is far less of a gesture than your donations are.
