MaxFunDrive 2017: Day 1 Update!

| 0 comments

THE MAXFUNDRIVE STARTS TODAY, Monday, March 20th, and ends on March 31st. It’s the best time of year to become a member (or upgrade your existing membership), and we've put together some incredible, MaxFunDrive-exclusive thank-you gifts to show our appreciation. Plus, isn't it just fun to be a part of a thing?

We think so. And we hope you think so, too because we need your help. We've set our highest goal yet: 10,000 new or upgrading members. 10,000! That's exactly DOUBLE our goal from last year! But we know we can do it. Well, we know YOU can do it.

HOW CAN I HELP?

1. Tune in to all your favorite shows (and some new ones!) during the next two weeks. Your favorite hosts will tell you all the exciting stuff about MaxFunDrive!

2. Head over to maximumfun.org/donate and become a new member or upgrade your current membership! You can do that now. Like, right now. Open that link in a new tab, so you won't even lose your place. Go ahead. Here, I'll put a big note saying THIS IS WHERE YOU START READING AGAIN WHEN YOU'RE DONE. Back? Excellent. Now that you've done that, you're free to spend the rest of the MaxFunDrive tweeting about how great everyone at MaxFun thinks you are (because we really do).

WHAT WAS THAT YOU SAID ABOUT INCREDIBLE GIFTS?

Well, we’ve been working hard to figure out the best way to show our massive appreciation, and we've come up with some tremendous thank-you gifts that you simply can't get anywhere else. If you become a member for the first time, or if you upgrade your existing membership to the next tier, you'll get some seriously cool stuff.
- For $5 a month you’ll get continuous access to 100+ hours of bonus content from all of your favorite shows.
- $10 a month will get you your choice of THE COOLEST enamel pins. Megan Lynn Kott designed a unique pin for each of your favorite shows, and, frankly, they're spectacular.
- If you sign up at $20 a month, you'll get our Keep in Touch Kit. Everyone needs a little extra love and support now and then, and our KIT Kit provides everything you need to KIT the old-school way: amazing notecards designed by Brian Fernandes; a 4-color MaxFun rocket pen; a custom rocket-shaped, pencil shavings-scented candle crafted by Erica Huff, and pretty much the greatest self-inking stamp there is to help spread love and friendship the MaxFun way!
- AND MORE! Check out the blog post for the complete line-up!

I CAN'T PICK ONE PIN. I JUST CAN'T!!

We have seen the sentiment A LOT, and we feel you. Megan did an almost unbelievable job on these, and they're so dang collectible, it doesn't seem right to make you choose. So here's the deal: if you are eligible for a pin (you join at or upgrade to a $10+ per month membership during the drive), we'll give you the chance to buy more pins after the drive ends. And we're not lining our pockets with that money -- we'll donate the profits to charity. The single best way to support your favorite MaxFun shows remains joining as a monthly member or upgrading your membership. We just realized we can't choose our favorite, and we didn't want you to have to, either.

THAT'S AMAZING. BUT I'M ALREADY A MAXFUN MEMBER, AND I CAN'T AFFORD TO UPGRADE.

First off: thank you! We so appreciate your support and membership. You literally keep the lights on around here. And we don't want to leave you out. If we reach our goal of 10,000 new and upgrading members, we'll give every $10+ monthly member the chance to buy pins after the drive ends. As with purchases from new and upgrading members, all profits will go to charity. This is sort of unheard of, but our goal is sort of unheard of, too. So help us get there by urging your friends who are loyal listeners to join at just $5 per month.

I NEED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE GIFTS.

That's fair. Check out maximumfun.org/donate to find out more about the donation levels and MaxFunDrive-exclusive thank-you gifts.

Finally, over the past few weeks, we had the awesome privilege of being able to thank some of our members in person. We wish we could do the same for all of you. But for now, please check out the first of this series, and know that we feel truly honored and humbled that you believe so much in what we do. The first day isn't over and we're already at over 2,500 new and upgrading members, and that wouldn't be possible without you! Thank you!
