Coasting for Kids 2013 - Be part of Team TPR!

Recommended Posts

Just got my stuff! Awesome, thanks Robb!


**This Thursday, 12pm Eastern Time is the deadline!!!*** I just got an email and the final counts for the prizes is now Thursday, at noon, Eastern time, so 9am on the west coast! So there is less than 2 days left!! Just a reminder, you can still raise money after that, but that is the time they will count up the donations for the event and the prizes.


Final reports will be run this Thursday, June 6 at Noon EST. While your fundraising pages will continue to stay live following the event, reports must be run at this time to finalize the participant list and determine the first, second and third place top fundraisers at each location. Remember, the real winners from this event are the deserving children who will get to experience a week without worry because of your hard work!


Please double-check that you have met or exceeded the $75 minimum per person by Thursday, June 6 at Noon EST to ensure your participation in the event. Each participant must have paid the $25 registration fee and raised at least $75 in order to attend. If you have collected offline donations, be sure to manually enter them on your FirstGiving fundraising page in order to get them counted towards your fundraising total. You can do this by signing-in to your FirstGiving account and clicking “Add offline donation.” Offline donations must be brought to the park and turned in on the day of the event. Checks should be made payable to Give Kids The World.

Hello I am riding as part of Team TPR with my son and husband. My donations are a little low right now and I could use some help! I am so excited to be participating in this event for such a good charity! Here is my page: https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/JasmineCoomer/KnottsBerryFarm2013




I got you up to the $75 minimum. Have a great time!




Thank you Jason for everything. All three of us are now set to ride this Sunday. Hopefully we can raise some more $$$ before then though!

Ok, guys, you have less than 24 hours to BLAST messages out to your Facebook, Twitter, make phone calls to friends, etc!


I've put the C4K link on our front page, Facebook, Twitter, and I'm about to blast out another email.


Let's give this ONE FINAL PUSH!!!


Thank you to everyone!

Coasting_smaller.jpg.dbf6eb4385a36aef4b94fa435f3c5ca9.jpgTheme Park Review's Coasting For Kids riders have already raised $42,000 for Give Kids The World (WOW!), but we'd love to get that as close to $50k as possible!


Below are the links to our Team TPR pages. We are really close to being the #1 team and #1 fundraiser at several of these parks. Please help our team out! Anyone who donates $10 or more over this next 24 hours will get a Bag-O-Crap from us! (The bigger the donation, the bigger the bag-o-crap!) Just email me at robbalvey@themeparkreview.com with who you donated to and how much!

Fundraising ends at 12:00pm EDT on Thursday, June 6th


Thank you to everyone who has helped with this fund raiser!

So excited for this event! I donated to a fellow World's of Fun participant on team TPR that hasn't quite met the $75 limit. Think we can help her out?


Also, thanks to those who donated to me. I'm honored to be part of such an amazing community of people. I'll also look forward to meeting some of you at WoF!

Got my Team TPR pack...I've send out some email blasts to try to get that last bit to reach my goal! There are only three members in the Carowinds group, but we are only $115.00 away from an even $1,000 raised..so close! Hop on in there if anyone still wants to work towards the generous bags of crap offer! Here goes one more shameless plug on FB!! Go Team TPR!


And for those that donated to my page, thank you!

If someone donates $50 to my page, I'll donate $50 to your page! And remember, that would qualify for a pretty awesome bag of crap!


I just had to take you up on your offer. Thanks!


Joey is just $7 away from his goal; who wants to push him over the edge?

Thanks! I'll do yours in just a few minutes when I get home.


Edit: Done! Just remember to email Robb with my link for the grab bag stuff.

So, the final 4 hours are upon us! I have an all-day meeting with customers starting at 8, so I won't be able to keep an eye on things, but after a huge surge yesterday thanks largely to TPR, I've managed to move back into first (well, 2nd technically behind Jason's awesomeness! ), which means I would be able to donate my prize as planned to a child/family in need in the Dorney Park area! I am crossing my fingers that I'll stay there so I can do this!! I truly love this event and cannot wait for Sunday!!


Also, I wanted to give a huge THANK YOU to ALL who donated to my page, including so many from here on TPR! You guys are all amazing, and it goes to show why I absolutely love this online community we have here. Kudos to all of you for the hard work you've done! It is beyond fantastic that TPR has raised so much money for GKTW already!! And a special thanks to Robb and Elissa who throw so much support and work behind this wonderful cause and charity! Without you guys leading the way, I think it's safe to say that many of us wouldn't have gotten to the fundraising levels we have. Thank you!


Here's to finishing strong today! GO TEAM TPR!!!
