Just got another update from Soulforce on their Equality Ride. Turns out, they have only a few more minutes to raise an additional $10,000. Remember, three of their stops would be in North Texas this year, at Dallas Baptist University, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Southwestern Assemblies of God University. So it seems to me that if the ride is postponed, Dallas has more to lose than any other city. Here’s the update, sent at 2:10 p.m.
Less Than One Hour to Go — $10,253 Left to Raise
Since our email alert was sent out earlier today, we have raised $19,747. We still need another $10,253 to reach $30,000 — the amount we must have by 4pm EST TODAY in order to avoid postponing the 2008 Equality Ride.
