Eaves for Sponsorship Contributors

Posted on the May 27th, 2012 under Empire Avenue,News by Ron Heigh

Last week, I published a blog entry for my 13 year old daughter.  She has started her own fundraising page to help offset the financial burden associated with her training schedule.   Sydney successfully qualified for a national team (synchronized swimming) this year, and is currently in Toronto for the final national level competition of the year.  She is currently training 21-24 hours per week.

The fundraiser was a little slower than she had hoped, so I am getting on board with my Empire Avenue account to help inject a little more incentive to potential contributors.  I have created a private community on Empire Avenue called “My 2020 Olympic Dream Supporters“.  To gain access to this exclusive community, you must have made a minimum contribution of $50 to the gofundme page that Sydney has created.  Once inside the community, you will have access to a series of missions that are designed specifically for the community.  There are currently 9 missions available, each one is valued at 50,000e each.  After each person is added to the account and has claimed the first mission, it will be archived, and a new mission will be created.

Essentially, the sooner you donate and join the community, the sooner you can claim the available missions, plus claim all of the progressive missions that will be created after each spot is claimed (10 spots maximum)  So the first person to join will have access to 19 potential missions (950,000e).  The second person to join will have access to 18 potential missions (900,000e)…. (my apologies if my math is bad, not my strong suit)

In summary, the sooner you make your donation, the more eaves you can potentially claim.  The minimum bonus you can receive is 500,000e and the maximum bonus you can receive is 950,000e.  This truly is a case of “the early bird gets the worm” :D

edit – The 1st 2nd 3rd 4th position has been claimed.  Hurry, space is filling fast!

    First of all I’d like to wish your daughter Sydney all the best luck in the world. Also I like to say to you job well done for taking the time out for helping your daughter. Keep supporting her as much as possible and you both will be BIG winners:) I say this based on my experience in having taught English to more than 6,000 people (about 5,000 of them teens in secondary school) who don’t usually get this kind of support from their parents here in Thailand.

    At first I thought you said she practices 21-24 hours per DAY!  I had to re-read it!  At first i was thinking, “Man, that’s dedication!”  

    Good luck to her, and congratulations on finding such a great way to spend your eaves.
