Earlier this week I asked the great NextDraft community to vote for 826 Valencia in our effort to score an additional 250K for our new Tenderloin Center. And last night, the folks behind the Google Impact Challenge confirmed we had enough votes to get the dough. At one point on Monday, NextDraft readers hit the voting servers so hard they thought it was some kind of fraud. Thanks so much for your support. It feels great to know that NextDraft was part of this effort. But I can’t deny that after a few weeks spent promoting this cause, it will feel good to return to my more natural state of self promotion. Thanks again for the clicks, shares, and good vibes. They all paid off.
