As you are probably aware, we’re on a deadline here. As the headline of this blog clearly states, unless we reach our goal of $20,000 in pledges by December 31st we will not be successful in funding the betacup prize fund.
So far we have raised $3.5k in pledges, which is 17.5% towards our target, however we only have 28 days left before the deadline.
Here are a few ways you can help us reach our goal:
1. Tweet about the campaign and share the following link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tobyd/fund-the-betacup-prize
2. Add the following to your email signature:

3. Copy and past the following embed code and add the campaign widget to your site:
4. Write a blog post about the campaign:
Our friends at Tiny Choices very kindly posted a great article about the betacup and our campaign here:
5. Help us expand our network:
Who else should we be talking to? Are there sites that we should approach or brands that would be interested in supporting our initiative?
6. Make your personal pledge:
Finally and most importantly we would love for you or your company to make a contribution to the campaign. $20 or more will get you a commemorative betacup and $200 will secure your place at the awards ceremony in New York City in 2010. If you pledge $2,000 you will be listed as an official sponsor and also be invited to join the judging panel for the design contest.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and thanks in advance for your ongoing support!
P.S My colleagues at betacup tell me that if we don’t reach our goal by December 31st then I will lose control of my Facebook status for the whole of January 1st. As you can imagine this could have dire consequences for me and my squeeky clean image!
