Thank You to Those Who Are Helping Others

There are thousands of people from throughout the world who invest in domain names. The majority of these people consider their domain investments to be a hobby rather than a full time profession. Domain investors work in various fields and professions, and there are many investors who are helping others as the coronavirus outbreak expands.

Among the domain investors ranks, I know there are doctors, nurses, fire fighters, police officers, members of the armed services, paramedics, scientists, farmers, grocery store employees, drivers, sanitation employees, janitors, hospital administrators, and many other professions who are on the front lines helping people heal or helping people survive.

To those who are helping others – Thank You. Your efforts are appreciated. If there is something I can do to help you or your family, please let me know. Stay healthy and be well.

Thank You!

GoFundMe Established to Assist Donna Mahony

A GoFundMe campaign has been established to assist Donna Mahony with upcoming medical and travel expenses associated with the treatment of Pulmonary Hypertension. Donna is a long time domain industry leader who is most known for creating and operating Domain Boardroom. The campaign has a fundraising goal of $7,500, and about $2,000 has been raised so far.

Joe Styler tweeted out a link to the Go Fund Me campaign this afternoon:

Offering 4 Sponsored Articles for PMC

I am still a ways away from my Pan-Mass Challenge fundraising goal of $12,500. In an effort to hit the mark, I am offering four sponsored articles on DomainInvesting.com for $750/each donated directly to my Pan-Mass Challenge fundraiser. To give additional exposure, I will also promote the article with a Domaining.com sponsored headline on the day the article is published.

I do not sell (or give away) sponsored articles on any sort of regular basis, so this is the chance to share your company’s announcement, perspective, or commentary about domain names or a domain industry topic. You can see how GoDaddy and Paul Nicks used a sponsored article in 2015 to write about women in the domain industry.

The rules are pretty simple:

$7,500 Raised… $5,000 To Go

With support from friends and colleagues in the domain industry, my 2019 Pan-Mass Challenge fundraiser passed the $7,500 mark this morning. All of the money raised goes to the life saving work at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the most important cancer research and treatment organizations in the world.

For the last couple of months, I have been training for my 161-mile, 2-day PMC bike ride. On August 3rd, John Berryhill and I will leave from Babson College in Wellesley, ride 78 miles to Mass Maritime Academy, and then ride the remaining 83 miles on August 4th. The ride is not easy (especially with the Summer-time heat/humidity and occasional torrential downpours), but it is made easier because of the support we have been receiving from friends and colleagues like you.

2019 PMC Jersey Raises $12,000!

I am really excited to share the final design for the 2019 Pan-Mass Challenge jersey that John Berryhill and I will wear when we cross the finish line and on our July training rides. The purple and pink jersey design won the voting by a slim margin of fewer than 10 votes. The winning design was created by the design team from our lead sponsor, XYZ:

2019 Pan-Mass Challenge Supporters

logoLater this Summer, I will be riding in the 2019 Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston. DFCI is one of the leading cancer organizations in the world – both in terms of cancer treatment and cancer research, and my family proudly supports it. Since the ride started, the PMC has raised over $660 Million for Dana-Farber!

This will be my sixth year riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge. With the help of supporters and friends like you, we raised over $50,000 for Dana-Farber and its Jimmy Fund in the first five years of riding in the PMC. My fundraising goal for 2019 is $12,500.
