This is cute and PPMD-related, so I thought I'd post.

Ryan + PPMD PS = cuteness. Aww.

WE ARE OFFICIALLY OPEN FOR DONATIONS.

So come on, spread the word and DONATE so that our goal amount looks less laughable. JEAH.

If you have any questions about donating, post a comment on this thread.



WE STILL NEED GRAPHICS, GUYS. Post them to our graphics post, and keep watching that space as we'll continue to update it.



WHO'S UP FOR SOME BUD LIGHT AND SKITTLES IN CELEBRATION?

Okay, guys. Sorry to keep you waiting! I spoke to Ryan at PPMD today and he said he's going to be working on the website and he should have it up for us tomorrow. So, hopefully, if all goes according to plan, we will have an official launch to announce. YAY!!!!!!!!!

He said they've been really busy lately (they just got a bill passed in Congress!), and he'll be working on this tomorrow, even though he's off tomorrow. AWW. :)

He also went on and on about how "such a sweet guy" Ryan is. He told me this hilariously awesome story about Ryan swimming for a charity event and they presented him a book of messages from some of the boys. He said Ryan was "SO touched. He was just speechless." I thought that was hella adorable. :D

So he's really excited and thinks this is such an awesome idea. And of course I expressed how anxious we are to get started.

So cross your fingers and keep watching this space! There will be much more to come, I PROMISE! =D

Ok guys, I suck at making things other than roflbot macros that aren't funny, so we need all you talented people to make icons, banners, or whatever else you want to make.

We'll keep 'em all here, so that if you ever want to put one on your user info or in your LJ, on Myspace, wherever you want, just snatch them up.

The Wall of ShameCollapse )

Also, I'm planning to email USA Swimming and SwimRoom.com to see if they could put something up on their websites for us. Would anyone be able to make something website-appropriate that links to this LJ?

So guys, Ryan over at Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy is really down for my idea to start a drive in Ryan's name. I mean like REALLY DOWN. Like HE'S REALLY EXCITED. We've been communicating through email the last couple of days (his last email was signed "Ry" :D), and here's what he said when I told him my idea:

"This is so exciting. I will be giving you a call tomorrow to chat. This is such a great idea. PPMD can help you get the word out, also it will be great to tell Ryan, he will be honored. I will have Will Nolan in our office send him a note."


......................

In case you didn't read that correctly:


"also it will be great to tell Ryan, he will be honored. I will have Will Nolan in our office send him a note."

BRB FUCKING DYING.

So yeah, he's going to call me tomorrow to hash out the specifics of this. (!!!!!!!!)

SO LET'S GET THIS SHIT OFF THE GROUND, GUYS!!! YA'LL NEED TO HELP ME! lol

My twin sister (stellarsara) and I created this community. Feel free to join/friend/watch it! It'll be where we promote the website, gather our ideas, announce progress reports of the drive, etc. (If you want to be a mod for the community plz email me at jenerink@bigred.unl.edu and tell me what ideas you have and what things you could bring to the community. Or you could just email me there if you have anything at all to add to what we're doing here. :D)

SO HERE'S WHAT I NEED

1. GRAPHIC MAKERS.
I want stuff akin to this:





2. PROMOTERS.

I need GMM. I need OYTD (iluguys). I just need ideas on where to promote this thing because I tend to be an (obsessive) lurker here and do not have the ~*~connectionZZZZZ~*~ that some of you guys do. Also, I may have set our goal a little too high (if you read the user info you'll see it's... kinda steep. lol) but no other number had the same significance as that one. So that's what we're shooting for (I also wanted to aim for higher than Ryan did himself back in August).

I'm planning on asking Ryan if there's any way we can send Ryan (argh too many Ryans!) a list of people who have donated and maybe each person can send him a little message along with it. What do you guys think of that?

We don't have an official page set up yet, but I'll let you guys know as soon as I have any info from Ryan about it.

So please join and tell me your ideas!! I am going to speak to Ryan tomorrow, so if you have anything you want me to ask him, let me know and I'll bring it up. THANKS GUYS!!!
