Free jersey if you donate to Habitat for Humanity
I raised money for Habitat for Humanity by pledging to ride 500 miles in August (which I completed on August 29). That may not seem like a whole lot, but I did it on a 1994 Bianchi Timberwolf mountain bike that had maybe 100 miles on it as of mid-July. My goal was to raise $2000. About 50 people donated money, but in the end I came up a bit short of my goal. So, I'm trying to scrape together the last bit of money any way I can. The jersey pictured here is a size large and is nearly brand new. I have worn it about three times, but it is an inch or two too short for me (I'm 6' 4"). It is in perfect condition. Rather than just tossing it or giving it away, I'm hoping someone will be willing to make a donation of at least $15 to Habitat for Humanity, and in return I will mail the jersey to you without any shipping charge (US or Canada only).
You can read more about my fundraiser and also make a donation by clicking here. If you'd like to take me up on this offer, please send me a private message first so I don't end up with multiple donors who all expect to receive the jersey. And of course if you'd like to make a donation without getting anything in return you are certainly welcome to do that as well. And lest you think I have some kind of ulterior motive for doing all this, I assure you that I'm getting absolutely nothing from Habitat for Humanity or anyone else regardless of the amount I raise. I just wanted to help out one of my favorite organizations and thought this would be a good way to do it.
So, that's my pitch. And without any further ado, here's the jersey (size large):
