THANK YOU for taking the time, week-to-week, to double check the pledge, check-in and standings lists. I run the Pledge with free technology and checking the lists is the only protection I can give against tech wonkyness.
THANK YOU especially to those people who checked the last standings list to make sure I have you recorded accurately.
THANK YOU to the people who notified me that they were missing things. While that didn't always result your standings changing, everyone handled the information with grace and class. So THANK YOU.
Now, if you've been following along this week we are picking FIVE (5) Pledgers who are only missing one week's worth of pledges and/or check-ins. Those five people will go through to next week's "Winner Takes All" Grand Prize competition. After the names below there's a bit more information about the grand prize competition you may want to read!

You all are now grand prize pledgers, alongside all the folks who have pledged and checked-in all four weeks! REMEMBER: You must still check in your week 4 goal this weekend to remain eligible to compete. I've emailed the above five people to notify them (at the email address they provided with pledges and check-ins). They don't need to respond or "claim" that spot. They simply need to check in their week 4 goals and then follow the directions for the grand prize competition.
- Information about the grand prize competition goes up the evening of Sunday, March 1. I may have said noon. I reserve the right to do it a bit later to make sure I've got it right. Please note, however, this is a competition not simply a drawing. In that regard...
- I know reading a bunch of stuff is a drag, but please read everything carefully! Failure to follow the instructions given can eliminate you from the grand prize competition. I try to make every word count, so read it please!
- If you have any questions at any time, I am here for you! Just like I have been throughout this whole Pledge. I can be reached most quickly via email firstname.lastname@example.org. Folks who have emailed me can attest I answer very quickly.
