ROC the Day is December 2!

Are you as ready to ROC as we are? We've hit the final countdown...only 8 more days!
 
Join us on Tuesday, December 2 starting at midnight to ROC the Day for Rfalconcam.

There are a couple of bonuses available this year. On the odd hours, the ROC the Day organizers will pick a current ROCstar to give an extra $500 bonus to the charity of their choice. And on the even hours, the organization with the highest number of donors for the preceding two-hour period will get an extra $1,000!

And we know which odd hour and two-hour period we are going to target, right? ;)

Yes, that's what I'm thinking. However, if anyone forgets to donate before 1 AM, they can still make a donation before 2 AM for it to counted toward the "highest number of donors for the preceding two-hour period" tally.

Did you know that every odd hour (1 AM, 3 AM, etc.) one lucky ROCstar (that's you!) will be randomly chosen to give an extra...

So plan to take a nap sometime during the day Monday so you can stay up late.  :snore:

Starting tonight at midnight!


Let's stay up late and make our donations right after midnight. It doesn't matter how big a donation it is. Whatever you can afford is always appreciated. In fact, you might want to continue to make a series of $1 donations throughout the day tomorrow so you'll have a chance on the odd hours to win the opportunity to have $500 donated to your favorite non-profit.

I believe the link is https://www.roctheday.org/rfalconcam (https://www.roctheday.org/rfalconcam) -- no confirmation yet. Stay tuned to this topic for more information.

Donated!  I'll stay up  until  1 AM for odd hour and donate again !

The way I read it, they will choose winners at the top of the odd hour (i.e. 1 AM, 3 AM, etc.). So the time to give is in the hour preceding it. (12:00-12:59 AM, 2:00-2:59 AM, etc.). If you want to stay up until 1 AM to give, that's fine, but I don't think it will help your chances of winning. You'd have to wait until 2 AM to get another chance.

So sorry to hear that, Carla. I bet that the local organizers never thought that they would reach a global audience. They have a phone number you can call if you are comfortable speaking English.

I made that call,but they are sorry but can't help me without an address in the US.
I will donate to the Rfalconcam directly next month.

$1000 for the most donors in the 12-2 AM period AND $500 for flooding the 1 AM ballot box with your names.

I love it when a plan comes together.


Oh, and not to forget another ~$500 (and counting) from our generous supporters (that's you folks) who always come through for us. Thank you.
