A simple PV40 Challenge idea

Here is an easy way to ask friends and family to help support your efforts as a PV without feeling like you are asking for a lot of money.

Look at the number of contacts who are on your contact list in your email (minus fellow PVs of course) and divide that number in $250 (the PV40 Challenge amount) and ask for a donation of that amount from each person. For example, if you have 50 people in your contact list ask for every person if they can to donate $5 to the PVs. One volunteer did this and raised over $700, by asking for donations of $8. Not everyone responded, but others gave more. You never know the response you might get.

The amount is small, but when added together it amounts to quite a bit. Just like the PVs... We may be small in number, but we are mighty!
