    The one way around the paypal requirement would be that you give them an online certificate of appreciation and just sell a couple levels of "Appreciation Certificates". Gold = $50.00 purchase, Silver, $20, Bronze, $10... email them a certificate with a wrestler on it in whichever color for a wallpaper

    Have you got a paypal donation link button for the Tickets for Kids? We will put it up on top of TWT for a couple weeks to see how it goes if you'd like.

    I happened to see in last night's news that the school that you pointed out to us is going to stay open after all. Good news for all, I'm sure!

    I got a request to "be your friend" that I have tried to activate, but with no luck. Do you know how I am supposed to do it? (Why in h3ll am I trying to become the friend of a junk-mailer? Oh well, as long as you don't start tele-marketing.)

    Have you tried writing a test blog by just typing directly into the editor without copy/pasting anything into it? Just adding text and links directly to the editor.. if it messes up then, I can look into it more.

    Don't worry if it gets messed up, I can fix it for you.

Honoring greatness

by gg121and2 on 09-28-2009 at 06:57 AM
They call themselves ?Mac?s Boys?. National Wrestling Hall of Fame historian, Jay Hammond has said of them, ?It could easily be argued that (they were) the best collegiate wrestling program in the country from 1946 ? 1952.? Hammond points out that, ?? they crowned 16 individual champions in those years. Oklahoma State had 12 champs, and no other school had more than five in that time frame.? Their numbers include three 3X individual NCAA champions, an Olympic Champion and a silver medallist and

Dear Mary Alumnus

This week brought one more online request for money for a wrestling program. Norwich University announced the reinstatement of wrestling as a varsity sport, but it was added that they still need to raise $20,000 to meet this year?s financial obligation.

Last week I gave some basic tips on fund raising. This week I?ve written a sample letter from a fictional former wrestler at Smallville College to a hypothetical alumnus who has a history of giving to Smallville, but who has never

Part of Tom?s work at MSU is developing marketing and promotional programs. He read last week?s ?sales letter? from Mark Palmer and wrote a lengthy response which explores the concept of ?sharing? wrestling. Here is Tom?s response.

Could you sell college wrestling?

by gg121and2 on 04-13-2009 at 06:06 AM
It?s confession time. I write sales letters that end up in your mailbox. Oh ? I do other things, but the whole thrust of what I do professionally is that I send you, your friends and your neighbors mail with the sole intent of selling you something (or getting you to donate to a charity). Over the years I may have sold you jewelry, shoes, cell phones, pizza, sub sandwiches, ocean cruises, tractors, a plasma TV, fishing gear or a tuxedo. I might have prodded you into contributing to a veteran?s group,
