What's Up With "Building What?"?

Pat Curley of the Screw Loose Change blog recently asked some questions about the status of the "BuildingWhat?" campaign, he states:

Building Wut is still at $88,009. Hasn't budged in about 10 days, and they haven't begged again on Flogger. Wut's up with that?

Who's going on vacation with the Building Wut donations?
Here are the answers from an October 10th email:

Dear Friends,

Together we have raised $90,000 in less than two months. Thank you for your generosity and incredible determination. Now our hard work and commitment are about to pay off.

For the last two weeks we have been negotiating to get the biggest bang for our buck. Because of election season, advertising rates are about three times the normal rate, and so we decided to push back the release until immediately after the election when rates are rock bottom.

As the deal stands now, the ad will be viewed almost 5 million times, and 500,000 New Yorkers will see it an average of 8 times each. It will run on the most popular cable shows and channels including the Daily Show, the Colbert Report, MSNBC and CNN, as well as a dozen smaller channels.

The contract will be finalized by the end of the week, at which time we will announce the exact dates the ad will be aired.

Thank you so much for your patience and support.

The BuildingWhat? Team
