Is there any way that you can get this story to one of his former players? Heck, even one of the current Houston Texans players for that matter! If they could just donate an amount equal to a night out would make a big difference.
I was wondering that myself. Seems like some of them should still be financially viable enough to help out.

Gave it to Pastorini on Facebook and he sent it to a ton of people. I'm hoping to reach out to some players too, and maybe some folks at the NFL offices.

Also hoping to do some sort of push on radio stations, where you can more directly ask people to do something right that moment.

Just my article has been shared 144 times.

But the deal is that it is much easier to share something that sounds cool than it is to get people 1. that have some extra money 2. to take the time to make this happen.

The sales term is "conversion."

I have tried to get various media outlets interested in this. And they've come through because it is a crazy fantastic idea.

But the hard part is to get people to act. Especially when we are just 7% of the goal. Sometimes once you get the ball rolling, it keeps going, but I'm not sure if this can get done.

The way I figure it is this:

The Astrodome is likely going to get razed.

The idea of a Bum/Earl statue isn't close.

But this is something that could actually happen. And I know talking to Bum that he is delighted in the idea, he just thinks it's great that some fellows from Texas thought about doing this. The first guy in any sort of football at all that has an OPERA written about him.

Just seems to me in all of Texas, we should be able to get more than 9 people to donate something.

Pretty sure this isn't stuck on $1870.00 anymore. Not saying, just saying.

An even $2600.

13% raised.

24 supporters.
(13 from Texas).

18 days to go.

If we get that % higher, I think we can get the donations going faster where it looks realistic that it will happen.

More.

$2700 raised.
25 supporters
13% of goal
17 days left.

At this pace, we won't make it. The hope is that short term we can get more supporters, which will get more momentum to finish the donation period with a strong kick.

Do you have a company? Consider making a donation under your company name, and I will promote the heck out of it.

We need to make this happen because it is realistic and failure is not an option.

Less than a week left.

But they lowered the goal to $10,000 so it's 41% funded.

http://www.usaprojects.org/project/b...premiere_opera

If you make a business donation, I will promote your business on Twitter as a donor.

Let's make this happen!

That is fantastic!

They are still taking donations for those who want tickets to the opening night and traveling to NYC. Think that is at the $150 level.

Anyone know who the person is that made the big donation to go over the top?
