We have one more Balloon Juice Angel to help get us to the $25,000 mark for our Michigan group!
When I wrote to him to say that his Angel Match #7 would be starting today, he wrote back just now with a simple message:
“Wooo, Let’s Do It!”
As I write this, there are no more Balloon Juice Angels waiting in the wings.
Angel #7 will match up to $50 for each person who puts their donation in a comment, up to a total of $1,000.
Let’s get this done for Michigan, shall we?
Promote the Vote Michigan 2022
At $25,000 we can fund the 5th fellowship!
In for $50
@Jon W: Thank you, that’s $100 for Michigan!
Wooooo!!! Thank you to Angel #7 – a lucky number for certain!
Thank you for organizing this! $25 to Michigan!
Just put in $60 for a nice round $21K.
@stayinginside: @eponymous: Between the two of you, that’s $160. thanks so much
@Jon W: Welcome to commenting!
I did $50 — thanks for the boost, #7! ETA: GO BLUE!
Alison Rose ???
@WaterGirl: LOL I wondered what ghost comment you were replying to up above!
@Alison Rose ???: Yeah, I replied before I noticed that comment #1 was in moderation. :-) Hence the belated welcome.
@SargassoSink: Thank you for that! A hundred for Michigan, yay!
Is there a maximum dollar amount for Angel #7? Or is it truly a $50 match until $25,000 is reached?
Either way, Hooray for Angel #7!
@Old School: Most excellent question!
I did not mean to mislead, I just forgot to include that Angel #7 is for $1,000.
So he is matching up to $1,000 of donations listed in the comments, with a max of $50 per person.
@Old School: You raise a good point. Unless another BJ angel jumps in, we are most definitely going to run out of match money before we reach $25,000.
It is true that Bj angels seem to appear when we need them the most, so maybe another angel will make an appearance.
In for $50. Flip that Leg! Return Big Gretch!!
@Dan B: Thank you! We are now at $225 toward the $1,000 match.
Thank you, Angel#7 and Watergirl! I just threw in $40.
@dkinPa: Thank you so much! Another $80 for Michigan.
$50 from me.
@Sfinny: Thank you, $100 for Michigan!
Pitching in $50
@WaterGirl: Thank you so much! That’s another hundred for Michigan.
Okay – In for $50. Let’s do this.
Added my $50 and thanks to the angel. Is it in time to qualify for matching?
In for $50. Go Blue!
@Mercy: @Lurker Dan: @Caphilldcne:
Just got out of my meeting and thought I would check, and I found all 3 of these. That’s $300 for Michigan.
Got booster #2 today and really feeling like crap for the past hour, so I am heading to bed.
We are at $515 right now – halfway through the $1,000 match!
Will check back in the morning. Thanks everyone!
In for $50. Thank you, Angel #7!
Weird first week of post-Tax Season thanks to my girlfriend. Been catching up on the outside world with a vengeance.
Tuesday night – Get to experience Detroit City FC beating the Columbus Crew live.
Saturday night – After spending much of the afternoon catching 200 Pokémon and trying every beer Eastern Market Brewing has to offer, a friend of hers offers tickets to Blue Man Group at the Fox. Right up front. Always wanted to see them, and it fell in our lap.
Then today a random tweet lead me to find out that Wesley Stace / John Wesley Harding is putting on a house show a few miles from my office next Wednesday. 40 people at someone’s house. We will be two of them.
I already had to make her watch The Sparks Brothers to get her ready for their 4/1 concert in Royal Oak, now I have only a week to get her up to speed on Wes. I’ve been a fan for over 30 years myself, both his music and novels.
After two years of COVID Tax Season, to suddenly be able to do all of this middle aged hipster stuff all in a month or so is amazing.
@Leslie: @Mo Salad: Thats another $200 for Michigan!

Congrats to all, and thanks so much, WaterGirl!
