    Default Judd and Josephine’s matching challenge

    Many of you probably received an e-mail this morning from WABA featuring our very own Josephine. Josephine and I are leading a match of all donations to WABA up to $8,000! Several other members of the forum joined us in offering this match.

    WABA is working every day to build trails, to improve infrastructure, to teach people to bike and to connect its members in meaningful ways (including by providing this forum). WABA has also had a personal impact. Josephine took the leap to bike commuting after a WABA presentation. I received support from WABA after being hit by a car this year.

    We hope that you can join us in our support and double your impact by making a tax deductible donation today.

    To donate and read about how I got grounded because of biking, visit here:

    We could also use your help in promoting the matching donation. WABA is posting an announcement on Twitter and Facebook. If you could retweet and share along with a personal message about how you’ve benefited from biking or WABA we would greatly appreciate it.

    Hmmm.... tried to donate but Amex is not accepted? It’s not an option under the CC drop down menu.

    This is a great opportunity to help spend Judd and Josephine's money!

    Please contribute to the cause. We all benefit from WABA every time we ride. For it to be effective, we have to support it.

    Amex works. Just leave that drop down alone and put your numbers in.

    I plan on donating all the money I get from selling the Freezing Saddles email list, as soon as the funds are transferred from Nigeria.

    Update from WABA is below. The $8,000 that Josephine, me and some of our fine friends (I’ll let them decide if they want to be public) put up was matched in just three hours. Fortunately six additional donors were inspired by the match that they contacted WABA this morning to provide an additional $5,000. Take advantage of the match by donating at WABA.org/give


    Judd, something really special just happened.

    If you missed her email this morning, Josephine, a WABA member, rallied together several friends to support WABA with an $8,000 matching gift. We couldn’t be more grateful, and we have great news: we met their challenge match of $8,000 at 11:33am today!

    We haven’t heard from you yet, but it’s not too late: six more WABA supporters stepped up this morning to contribute another $5,000 to the match!

    Eddie - thank you so much for your donation. I’m checking in with Kristin Frontiera who is the development director at WABA this afternoon. I’ll let her know that the site is confusing for AMEX users and see if there’s anything that they can do to fix it.
