After a week of building or modifying the e-infrastructure needed to support my fundraising and communication plans, I'm one day away from launching day. This involved setting up this blog, updating my PayPal account, and creating a donation widget that permits and processes securely online payments. Several steps remain, including the development of outreach plans for local businesses, friends, and family who do not live online like the rest of us. Will I succeed in raising $10k? Stay tuned. We'll find out together.
