Media Options Acquires g.Holdings

logoAndrew Rosener of Media Options has agreed to acquire the g.Holdings domain name from my company for $1,250. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t report a domain name sale publicly, but this one is for a great cause.

All proceeds from the sale of this domain name have been donated to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as a part of my Pan-Mass Challenge fundraising drive. Andrew’s company gets a domain name with great potential, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute gets a four figure donation. That’s what I call a win-win situation.

This Sunday morning, I will ride my bike almost 50 miles with over 5,000 other bicyclists to raise funds for Dana-Farber. If you don’t know what Dana-Farber is or how it helps people with cancer, you can read more about this great organization here. Cancer impacts just about everyone in some way, be it through a family member or friend. Dana-Farber helps people who have cancer, and they do research to find a cure.

I still have a bit more than one day to go to hit my $5,000 ($7,000 stretch) fundraising goal before my ride, and I would sincerely appreciate your support. As of right now, I am still a bit short of my goal, and I would love to see it surpassed with your help. Every dollar will help.

I am determined to reach my fundraising goal in support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and I appreciate any support you can provide!

THANK YOU to all who have donated to support Dana-Farber on my behalf.

  1. Big thank you to Jacob Fedosky for making a large donation to hit my $5,000 fundraising goal!!

    Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a great organization and can use all the help they can get.

    THANK YOU to ALL who helped me raise funds for DFCI!

  2. I tried to donate but they don’t seem to want non-US money. Require a ZIP code. Can I just paypal you the funds? Email me.

    • I like to surprise people/orgs after making a large sale, and I tend to do it as anonymously as possible. Feels good to help others without them knowing who was involved. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I am going to make a stretch goal of $7,000 for the campaign. I want to raise as much as possible, and I don’t want anyone who wants to donate to be dissuaded from doing so because my arbitrary goal was met.
