So, here we are, climbing the ladder… upside down. Sure, we’re going up… but I haven’t convinced myself we’re actually gaining altitude, since my head is still lower than my feet! I turned 55 last Tuesday, and in the middle of it got a great big surprise. We finally got our first big break, our first real grant, and although it’s not money to operate on, it does give us an incredible beginning in terms of getting a “donation campaign” going. Google selected Alpha Mobility to receive a perpetual $10,000 per month grant with an “in kind” grant that gives us access to their Adwords Program (we can run ads on Google search pages and they waive the fee, basically). More importantly, what this grant gives us is a sense of legitimacy and credibility… and for me, personally, a sense that it’s worth pushing on through these hard times. We want to publicly acknowledge and show our appreciation for the team at Google who determines who gets these grants, and send our most heartfelt thanks. This good news could NOT have come at a more critical time. Thank you!!
One rung at a time, right? All of my time now is going to go into getting these ads created and assigned, so watch for us all over Google World. And if you can, visit our website at http://www.alphamobilitymission.org and see what we do, and help us do it. At the very least, just do one nice, unexpected thing for someone else, whether you know them or not.
