Hello, friends of Pollinators!
I wanted to do a quick December update on the blog here.
We have a new sponsor and he has given us the deadline of January 9th, 2013 to collect all of the applications- then he will introduce a bill into law for these plates! If you haven't sent in your application yet, please do so as soon as possible. I know with the holidays this month, everyone is super busy- so the sooner you can send it in, the better!
You can click the "Get Your Plate" tab above for all of the information.
As of today, according to the ticker on the right side of the blog, we're just over halfway there (51%). But I have had a lot of help from some wonderful people who are also collecting applications and, technically, we have more than this. I'm not sure of the exact number, and those applications aren't yet in my file box- which is why the number stands at 51%.
If you'd like a guess on where we stand, I've heard from 2 fabulous supporters that they've each collected 40 applications. So, 231 + 80 (again, this is very approximate) = 311. That means we would still need more than 100 to get to our goal by January 9th... but I have faith that the folks who have contacted me and said they want plates will follow through :)
If we don't get the plates this year, we will keep collecting applications next year. I'm 100% confident we'll get enough next year to get us to 450, especially with Sweet Virginia's gift of honey incentives at events.
I think that's all for now- if you have any questions, please let me know!
Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season and take care,
