Sororities at Cal Poly Raise Money for The Murph

Today Amy Smith-Schwartz spoke at “Presents,” a ceremony where all the new members of each sorority at Cal Poly come, along with their families, and are presented as the new members of each house. Amy gave a speech about Murph and how the greek community has really come together to support him and his family anyway they can.  It was very moving.  The Amy and some of the other sisters stood at the back of the auditorium with when everyone was leaving and collected donations from the family members.  In about a 15 min time period, they had collected exactly $500. It was an amazing site to see.

Not everyone in the Selke house has enjoyed stuffing envelopes and fulfilling orders for the J.Murph wristbands.
We are collecting photos of J.Murph band sightings in the wild.  Everyone could use a burst of encouragement.  Email your photo or video to: jfmproject@gmail.com and we will get it posted.  Feel free to add a caption, description, or note for John and his family.

First Day of Wristband Orders Sent!

wristband stuffing

Today was the first day of sorting and organizing all the orders that came in on the web site in the last 24 hours.  Thankfully we tried to get word out to every at SLO to hold off on getting their wristband until the satellite distribution center can be opened. Both Amy Smith-Schwartz and Bryan Collings are heading up the SLO team.  Without the rush from SLO we still ended up send out 51 envelopes of wristbands.  I have a thermal postage printer on order but it has not yet arrived. Eager to get these wristbands out into the wild, I recruited the next best thing, my husband Brian (pictured).  If you would like to set up a distribution station, let us know.  It costs $1.17 to mail just one wristband so if we send you a bunch and you want to sell them at your church or school, more profits come to the project.

Wristbands Hit the Mail, SLO set up as Satellite

The first wristbands went out on Friday.  The excitement is palatable.  To facilitate the distribution to all of John’s friends at Cal Poly, a satellite distribution and fundraising station is being organized in SLO.  They should be there and ready to go by Thursday.

John’s Friends Start a Fundraising Project

Motivated by John’s hard work, a number of his friends banded together to create a wristband for everyone around the world to wear united in support for John.  The wristbands are navy with white letters spelling “J.Murph”.  They arrive mid-October and will be sold to raise money for John.
