Dear 11W Community,

As you know we have been running the Respect the Basement Fundraiser for a while now and are winding down towards the end come April 1. We have done an outstanding job and we appreciate everyone's help thus far, but we are so close yet so far from achieving our goal to hire a beat writer.

We realized on National Signing Day that we would have hit our goal if every single person that visited 11W that day donated just $1 to the cause, so we thought, why not actually try designating a day where each person to visit this site donates $1. Assuming people get paid either weekly, bi-weekly, or the 1st and 15th of every month, we thought that next Friday, March 16 would be a good day as most of our readers that have jobs will get paid around then. 

Obviously this is completely optional, but we are fully committed to keeping this site as it is, with free content. To bring you the best free Ohio State content on the web, we need your help in bringing 11W to the next level and if you can spare just one single dollar on March 16 towards the fundraiser, it would be greatly appreciated. Of course, you don't have to ONLY donate $1 and can give more if you can afford it, but please know every penny helps here and $1 per person will go a long way.

If you have any questions, please feel free to drop them in the comment section below. Please spread the word and help us reach our goal of hiring a beat writer by the spring game.
