four new backers = $187 until tgcp is 20% funded

It’s been an incredible Friday for The Global Citizen Project. I’m just $187 shy of reaching the $4,000 milestone (if you’ve been following along, you know how much I like round numbers), which will put me at the 20% funded mark. (Note: The Global Citizen Project must be fully-funded by February 22, 2010 to happen.)

Big thanks to these four fantastic women, The Global Citizen Project’s latest backers:

Lisa McElroy. Lisa became a new travel writer friend when our paths crossed in Aruba on a press trip. She's a multi-tasking mama, teaching as an Associate Professor of Law at The Earle Mack School of Law at Drexel University. A lesser-known act is that Lisa was a recent contestant on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”

Nancy Uber Rose. Nancy is one of my favorite publicists, and it's not just because she has a killer hospitality client list. (Although I do think her client, Hotel Renew is the best budget boutique hotel on Oahu.) Recently married to her surfing sweetheart, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful bride. You can follow her on Twitter here.

Cheryl Sternman Rule. Cheryl is a new friend via my Google Foodwriters group. She's a freelancer writer
specializing in food, nutrition and education. I also found out today that she served in the Peace Corps in Africa, so I may have to pick her brain for some volunteering ideas. You can follow her on Twitter here.

Kayt Sukel. Kayt is a new friend via the Twitterverse via another new friend via Kickstarter, Peter West Carey. (Check out his The People, Places & Patterns Project here.) Her publishing credits are a mile long, but she also blogs regularly about traveling as a contributing editor for Travel Savvy Mom and restaurant blogger for Uptake.com. You can follow her on Twitter here.

I’d also like to thank Condé Nast's online sites, Jaunted, the pop culture travel guide, and HotelChatter for  retweeting The Global Citizen Project and its various pledge rewards today. (Full disclosure: I write for Condé Nast.)

Thank you to The Global Citizen Project's 46 backers who have generously pledged $3,852 so far. 44 days to go to reach the $20,000 goal! We can do it.
