Thank You to Our PMC Jersey Sponsors!

5

Our 2017 Pan-Mass Challenge jerseys have arrived and they look great. With the help of several fantastic domain industry sponsors, John Berryhill and I have helped to raise over $17,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute via our PMC fundraisers!  My goal is to raise $12,000 and John's goal is to raise $9,000, so we still have a bit of a ways to go before we can call this a complete success.

Thanks to the following domain industry sponsors, John and I will be wearing snazzy cycling jerseys with the logos of domain industry companies who have sponsored our ride with donations of $500 or more. I would be remiss if I didn't mention that we have had great support from others in the domain industry.

Here are the companies who made large donations to DFCI to sponsor our jerseys:

Uniregistry
TheDomains.com
.Buzz Registry
GoDaddy
.Club Registry
BuyDomains
Donuts
Igloo
Telepathy
NameCorp
NameJet
.XYZ Registry
DSAD.com
.Art Registry

This weekend, I will be doing two 75 mile training rides in the MetroWest region of → Read More


One Spot Remaining!

Our 2017 Pan-Mass Challenge jersey is almost ready! We need support from one additional domain industry sponsor, and John Berryhill and I will be ready to rock our cycling jerseys! A donation of $500 to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston via  John's PMC fundraiser or my PMC fundraiser will get your company's logo on the back of our jersey.

With your help, John and I have raised over $10,000 for Dana-Farber this year. Both of us have a bit of a way to go to meet our fundraising goal and could really use your support. Even if the jersey sponsorship is too much, a donation of any size will be appreciated. All of the domain industry support we have received so far has been amazing!

There is room for two more logos on the back of the jersey, and since GoDaddy sponsored us earlier today, there a spot for ONE more industry sponsor's logo! If you would like to be the last jersey sponsor for our ride, please post a comment so that multiple people/companies don't donate. I would love to have more $500 donors, but the shirt will → Read More


Get Your Logo on Our PMC Jersey!

This year's Pan-Mass Challenge ride is coming up the first weekend in August. John Berryhill and I will be riding 163 miles on our bicycles over two days to raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the world's leading cancer organizations.

Last week, I wrote about the unique way John is raising funds for his campaign. If you haven't read about it, check it out and keep the offer in mind if a domain name legal issue comes up.

On the first day of the Pan-Mass Challenge ride, cyclists wear the official PMC jersey. On the second day of the ride, cyclists can either wear their PMC jersey or they can wear another jersey of their choice. My preference has been to create my own PMC jersey with the logos of domain industry sponsors on the back.

This year, John and I plan to wear a customized PMC jersey to thank domain industry sponsors for their support. We will also wear our jerseys on our final few training rides prior to PMC weekend.

The first round concept of our PMC jersey is shown above. The only thing → Read More

Water SchoolThe WaterSchool is "a global non-profit organization with a mission to provide simple, safe, strategic, and sustainable clean water and sanitation solutions to the developing world." The organization receives a considerable amount of funding from people within the domain name space, and I believe its largest individual fundraising event is the Water Night party held during NamesCon.

Domain industry veteran Richard Lau serves as the Executive Director of The WaterSchool. In an email sent this morning, Richard shared an update about the organization's achievements last year. Here's what Richard shared with newsletter subscribers about the organization's 2016 activities and accomplishments: (more…) → Read More


Poll: Are You Investing in Cryptocurrency?

62

The last several weeks have been pretty crazy in the world of cryptocurrency. The value of Bitcoin, Etherium, and Litecoin have shot up considerably in the last weeks and days. People who bought $10,000 worth of Bitcoin in April would now hold nearly $25,000 worth of Bitcoin today.

I personally know several people in the domain investment space who are also active in the cryptocurrency space as well. I am curious if readers of my blog have been investing in cryptocurrency or if they are thinking about buying some. I invite you to vote in the poll and share your thoughts in the comment section.

We Passed the $5,000 Mark!

Elliot Silver PMC FInishRiding in the Pan-Mass Challenge is one of my favorite things to do each year. Yes, riding my bike for 163 miles over two days is challenging  for me, but having raised funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the cheering spectators along the route make the ride special.

The most challenging aspect of the ride for me is the training I do. I am not the most athletic person, so I train from the end of May until the end of July. For the first 2 weeks, I ride somewhere between 25-50 miles on one weekend day. For the rest of my training, I ride anywhere from 40 - 80 miles on Saturday and Sunday. This is in addition to running to stay in good health. The training rides are a challenge during the hot and humid Summer months, but it also a challenge for my wife who has to take care of the kids in the mornings.

As you may know, all of the funds raised by PMC riders benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the world's leading cancer research and treatment organizations. DFCI does great things for its patients, and the discoveries → Read More
