Contest Grand Total: $1181! We made it!
Profit for each item: while profit varies based on how much the actual shipping price is, I decided to make things simpler by assigning a specific amount to each store item, so you'd know approximately how much your purchases add to the grand total. The profit listed here doesn't necessarily reflect the real profit made (which doesn't include my time to process the orders, the cost of envelopes, etc.), but it does give you an idea of which things help raise more money. In general, purchasing anything with a WolfQuest logo on it (shirts and patches) helps the most, simply because we've already spent the money to purchase the product. So if there have already been enough items sold to recover the initial cost, all of that purchase price is profit.
So, here's how all our store items will count toward this contest:
- WolfQuest T-shirt- $10
- Large plush, toys, and mood necklaces- $5
- Small plush, bear claw necklace, WolfQuest patch- $2
- Bear claw replica- $1
- Donations- 100% of amount donated
And don't forget to visit our sponsors on the forum ads! (It's like donating someone else's money- free to you, but still a donation and helpful to WolfQuest!)
Edit: wolf567 was kind enough to make a lightning 'thermometer' to help us keep track of our goal (attached below unless it's being updated). Thanks!
