    I submitted a pledge for 1 miiiilliion dollars on your behalf, which should probably give you naming rights to a trail or something. I can probably convince Chris Slatt to name his fox it station in your honor.

    I’m hoping it gets renewed for a second season. Of all the ways that I have spent money, this has probably been the best.

    I had about a dozen rejoinders to this, but I graciously refrain.

    Doh! It is a very attractive bike fix it station. I should be banned from typing on a phone during a fundraising frenzy.

    Yesterday was amazing. Thank you to all of the forum members and friends that made a donation to WABA. We started the day offering an $8,000 match. Six other WABA members liked the idea enough to offer another $5,000 in matching money. That $13,000 match led to 126 WABA members donating $16,169.

    If you haven’t donated, WABA still needs your help. WABA still needs to raise $32,000 in the next three days to meet the fundraising goal for the year.

    Please visit WABA.org/give and make a donation today.

    Email from WABA this morning:

    "Hi all,

    Thank you so much for making a contribution to yesterday's challenge match. I'm so happy to share that it was a success; so much so that we doubled down halfway through the day and pushed for $13,000! And we made it: 126 donors contributed $16,169.89!

    Truly, we couldn't do our work without you. Thank you for coming to listen and learn about WABA; for being gracious riders eager to encourage others to join you; for making an investment in building a better connected region.

    Special thanks to Judd and Josephine for stepping up in a big way for WABA this year. Their generosity and hard work—not to mention willingness to let us share their words and photos far and wide!—is inspirational and deeply humbling.

    Thank you for your commitment to WABA and helping to make yesterday a success. Here's to a great 2018!

    With gratitude,
    Kristin"

    Kristin is correct. Judd and Josephine (Komorebi) rock. If you missed the action yesterday, get in touch with WABA today. Online at http://www.waba.org/blog/2017/12/judd-and-josephine/

    I'd also like to say thank you to the multiple forum members who promoted the match on social media yesterday. Several folks went way above and beyond, posting multiple times throughout the day, sharing their stories about biking and WABA, and giving likes to others who donated.

    WABA hit their December fundraising goal of $100,000 just a few moments ago and now has a stretch goal to raise another $10,000 by midnight tonight. WABA members really stepped up, donating over $60,000 since the matching donation was announced just three days ago. If you haven't made a 2017 gift to WABA yet, please visit waba.org/give.

    Thanks to everyone who has supported WABA this year by donating, volunteering and participating in events.
