ROC the Day donations may also be made via telephone by calling 1-800-242-0238.  Less than 5 hours until its time to ROC.

I just spoke with someone from ROC the Day.  She may call me tomorrow for a media interview.  The more publicity could equal more donations.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

OK, so what's the best strategy here?

The best strategy is to chose a time when it is least active.  Probably in the early morning hours like midnight to 2 a.m. on 12/12/12 or 2 to 4 a.m. on 12/12/12. 

I would expect that the normal business hours 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. will be very busy.  It will probably remain busy until 9 that night at least.  Last year some of the local bars had ROC the Day parties. 

ALSO, like last year, every hour they will chose a donor as the ROC star of the hour and donate $500 to their charity. 
Lots of things to consider.  Since I am not working, I will be monitoring the site and updating the donation amounts routinely during the 24 hour periond.

We have to remember that this year we are competing with all the non-profits (hundreds of organizations) for the incentives.  Last year we were only competing with the non-profits in the environmental group (less than 50 organizations).  I'm game to give it a try.  I will also be looking for any Roc the Day parties to attend.  Maybe I can get additional donations at them.

9 days and counting until midnight 12.12.12.  My two favorite organizations are in ROC the Day: Rfalconcam  yahoo and Wild Wings Inc.  clap

Sign up for a reminder - http://www.roctheday.org/

Every hour one lucky ROCstar (donor) will be randomly chosen to give an extra $500 bonus to the charity of their choice. 24 chances to win!

Plus...Rochester Area Community Foundation we'll be checking every two hours to see what registered organizations has the most ROCstar donors during that time period. The organizations with the most unique donors during each two-hour period will get an extra $1000 bonus, and there are 12 up for the grabs! (Agencies can only win this bonus once.)



Can we pick an hour so we can all donate in that hour?  Not to be a cheater or do anything wrong.  I wait for this to donate because of all the bonus money available !  Hope it is good this year.

I see no reason why we can't try to coordinate the 2 hour time period to try and take advantage of the bonus.  But the most important thing is to give.

30 minutes before ROC the Day started I posted about the chance to win $5,000.  I ended that post with this line: 

"I know that the rfalconcam community is unique.  It is consist of many wonderful people.  Now its time for us to show Rochester how unique we are."

Well we certainly did show them.  wow  notworthy

Thank you to everyone who ROC'd the Day.  Not only did you ROC the Day but you also roc'd the week, the month, and the year.  Thank you!!! thanks2

As of 9:00 a.m. we have raised just under $100.  How much can we raise by noon?  Check back for hourly updates.

If you haven't donate, please do so at:   http://www.roctheday.org/agency/rfalconcam

Less than 30 minutes until ROC the Day starts!

rfalconcam has a chance to win $5,000, here's how:


Rochester Area Community Foundation will award a $5,000 prize to local nonprofits in each of these four categories that attract the most "unique" donors (based on billing address) during ROC the DAY:
•   Arts & Culture
•   Community Benefit and Economic Development
•   Environment
•   Human Services

Rfalconcam is registered in the Environment category.  So if rfalconcam has the highest number of unique donors then the Rochester Area Community Foundation will give us $5,000.  The Environment category has under 50 not-for-profits agencies, compare that to the Human Services which has over 300 agencies and the other categories both have over 100 agencies competing for the $5,000.

Being a unique donor means multiple gifts from one donor with one billing address to one organization can be counted only once.  So this is not about how much one gives or how many times, but how many different people give to rfalconcam. 

I know that the rfalconcam community is unique.  It is consist of many wonderful people.  Now its time for us to show Rochester how unique we are.   If everyone that watches the cameras gave just $5 we could win $5,000!

Payments for ROC the Day can be any major credit or debit card or through a PayPal account.
44  Member Activities / Auctions and Sales for Fundraising / Re: ROC the Day! December 8th, 2011 on: 06-Dec-11, 10:42:39 pm
Your $5 donation could = $500.

Every hour, one ROCstar that just donated in that hour will be randomly selected by the United Way to receive an ADDITIONAL $500 added to your gift for the not-for-profit of your choice!

So a $5 donation could bring in big bucks for rfalconcam.

Remember on Thursday December 8 go to

http://www.roctheday.org/agency/rfalconcam

and give what you can.  You could be our ROCstar!
