I'm going to be ending 8 wishes in a few weeks. I'm also donating the funds to DARC and working on getting a page on their site so that you can see the funds went to them. We almost had something workout with Oprah and I will try to explain what happened in the next post.
I will be posting a new "viral" video and new site to raise more funds.
Thanks for being patient and I look forward to updating you all.
We're getting a new look...
I'm really excited to announce that I will be putting together a new website for 8 Wishes. I'm going to be moving the site from Blogger and I will be hosting the site myself. Blogger has been great but I will be moving the blog to a new platform that will add a bunch of features are give us more control of the design to help deliver all the news in a more developed way.
Also since the main video hit YouTube's front page I got a ton of emails -- at least 1000-- from people around the world. I also have around another 1000 emails from other avenues of media that 8 wishes got coverage for. It my top priority to respond to all the emails.
I'm going to be saving up funds to launch my new site. I also want to take a few weeks off to recharge my batteries (the 88 days took a lot out of me). My hope is to have the new site up in a month but it may take up to 3 months. Rest assured that I'll be working extremely hard to get everything up and running for 8 Wishes 2.0.
In June, we will be accepting applications for the donations we received. We will be giving away the $8,297 to one individual. The funds will be sitting in the ChipIn account and DARC will also be overseeing the whole process. You will notice that the donations are redirected to my PayPal account. This was the only way I was able to extend the deadline with the ChipIn widget. I will be changing it back to the ChipIn account as soon as I can. If you don't feel comfortable donating via PayPal, please just mail the check to DARC and make sure to write 8 Wishes in the memo.
I can wait to get back to work and grant all the wishes by 08/08/08
PS. Current YouTube video views: 558,682!

Just wanted you to know, that may be a bigger scholarship than you think.
Paul - that is awesome news. Cannot wait for it and I love the change of the date. The program that I am working on for dreamers looks like it will become a reality in the next 30 days.
I would love nothing more than to promote your site and profile you as we launch the project.
I will be in touch.
Thanks for the comment on my blog, http://billiondollarrunner.com.
Having been at my Billion Dollar Charity Run project for the past 11 or so years I understand the need to make changes in the projected completion date. You are doing the right thing.
And of course never, never quit.
I wish you the best of luck.

What you are doing is so so awesome! I cannot wait for the new changes and I have emailed your video to some friends to get the views up!
Well I think 08-08-08 is a very nice date, but don't choose 09-09-09 next year ;-) Also I liked the promoting video you have made. Today was the first time a viseted your personal site (blushing).
Well done, I'll support you in any way I can!

Now there are several ugg boots online store providing ugg at different prices. Meanwhile the quality of the uggs is different. It will be a bad experience to buy inferior ugg classic mini boots at high prices. Everyone wants to have a pair of genuine sheepskin ugg mini boots in winter or summer. However not everyone is lucky to get top quality ugg mini at reasonable prices.
