Another reason for you to give me a dollar!

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

As if you needed another reason to Give Now, my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world last May.

My wife is staying home with our daughter and we’ve got another mouth to feed, so again, can I please have your dollar?

3 weeks old!

 

We’re #61!

CNN recently released their Best Places to Live for 2011.

Webster Groves, Missouri came in sixty-first.

They had this to say about Webster Groves:

Novelist Jonathan Franzen, who grew up here, has called Webster Groves “a friendly, unpretentious town.” Nestled among tall oak trees planted 200 years ago, the neighborhoods in Webster Groves–named for 19th century statesman Daniel Webster–offer considerable economic diversity. Just two miles outside St. Louis city limits, the town has affordable housing that draws young families, plus much more expensive homes. Public schools are some of the most competitive in the region. –D.B.

I tried to read one of Jonathan Franzen’s books and I must say I enjoy Webster Groves significantly more than I did his book.

Can I Have Your Dollar.com is on twitter!

As just having a site and begging for donations doesn’t seem to be working all that well, we’re doubling down on a bad idea and trying a new tactic.

Coming soon to a tweet near you, we’ll now be soliciting donations from celebrities, athletes and rich folk.

It may be funny. It may be as bland as the rest of this site. It may just be what allows us to pay off this mortgage.

Let’s go! Go! Go!

Site Redesign Celebration!

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

As mentioned on one of the other pages of this site, I recently moved to WordPress from a custom ASP site. WordPress as a Content Management System is fantasic thus far.

To celebrate, I post one of the funniest clips on the Internets that asks almost the same question I’m asking you on this site.

Every time he says number, just picture him saying dollar. Enjoy.

And then head over to the give page to answer my question of Can I Have Your Dollar?.
