I’m extremely proud to announce we met and surpassed the $50,000 benchmark I set as our starting point at Low Carb Houston exactly three weeks ago today.
Words cannot express the level of thanks I have for this community coming together and driving this science forward.
Please keep those donations coming. By our rough estimates, each $2,000 will cover us for one LMHR measured. And as I also mentioned in Houston, my dream would be for us to get to 50, or even 100 LMHRs tracked. To be sure, that may be a stretch goal… but as of right now, it’s not so far away.
As of this writing, we’re already at $56,232. Part of this new surge has been boosted by the new video I released a couple days ago, which has helped spread the message and reach new audiences.
Yet the most powerful MVPs are the people who actively spread the word far and wide — you might be one of them. Don’t just contribute, share!
Lastly, I made a challenge with the community that if we actually reach all the matching funds for our Anonymous Donor ($25k for Nov), that I’d make a lipoprotein costume and run in it for the 10k I’m in this Sunday. As of right this moment, we’re just $3,423 from hitting that goal. Thus, I’ve already started making it, given the velocity of donations so far, I might very well be wearing it in two days!
The community has until midnight tomorrow to make this happen. And while it would be definitely be a much more difficult jog (I’m already woefully undertrained), it would definitely be worth it for me. Plus it would be pretty cool story, all in all.
Again, Thank You
One more time, let me just say thanks. I have more faith in citizen science today than ever before. The magnitude of progress to this benchmark has exceeded even my most optimistic assumptions.
You made it happen.
