Buying the last 9-3. Status update friday 27th of April
April 27, 2012 in Fan Stuff
Its friday afternoon here in Sweden and we’ve checked the status of the donations account. Its been almost 24 hours since we launched the donations campaign and during the first 10-12 hours there was a lot of activity on the account and the majority of the money was donated.
Account Status: €6’472 EUR ($8’555, 57’546 SEK) which is 23% or the required amount.
Average donations are ranging from 10-50 Euro’s per donor with about 10% of the donors giving 100 Euro per person.
31% of the donated money are coming from swedish readers, 14% from germany and 52% from other countries in Europe. Just over 1% of the total donated money is coming from North America and Asia.
Biggest single donation so far was for 1200 euro and came from a dedicated Saab fan in Switzerland! We are hoping to get the clubs to join into this cause and we have heard that some clubs are considering to donate various substantial amounts.
Reaching over 6000 euro in just 24 hours is truly amazing, I have to say that I am amazed about the response so far but we still have a very long way to go. The deadline for providing a donation is the 20th of May at 14:00 Central European Time. That is when we will know if we have been able to complete the task of saving this valuable car or if the money gathered will be sent as a one time donation to the Saab Cars Museum.
