Update July 14: Thanks to John's fantastic supporters, who donated more than they had originally pledged, the final amount raised is now $649!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
Update July 5: John's weight-loss challenge is done!
He set a goal to lose 20 lbs. in 30 days, and in the end he succeeded in losing 16.5 lbs. in 30 days.
An amazing result: chapeau to John's strong will!
His start weight was 248.5 lbs (113 kg) and his end weight is 232.0 lbs (105.2 kg).
The total pledged money was $34/lb lost, so the total to be raised is $561.
Now John is in the process of gathering this sponsor money from his wonderful supporters!

THANK YOU JOHN!
AND A ZILLION THANKS TO ALL YOUR 'WEIGHT LOSS' SUPPORTERS, TOO!!
Dear Friends and Supporters,
John Schneiderwind has been involved with the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association since its inception in 2000 and most recently he has been helping Starfish at two recent fundraisers: one in Charlotte, NC (2012) and one in Burbank, CA (2014).
John has now decided to go on a diet, lose some weight and start getting healthy, not only for his own good for also for his lovely wife and daughter: it will be a surprise for them since right now - and for the next month - they will be abroad. He thought to take advantage of this decision and asked himself - 'why not try to raise money for charity while doing it...?'
So he started his blog to both motivate him, to keep all supporters and followers informed of his progress, to raise awareness of Starfish and to solicit sponsors for his weight loss.
John's blog is here gethealthyforstarfish.wordpress.com/ for you to get more details and instructions on how to help him in his demanding endeavor.
John's goal is to lose 20 lbs (almost 10 kgs) in 30 days, and while this effort is in progress, he will be gathering supports from donors to sponsor his weight loss.
All donated funds will go to Rutger's charity and John is asking a 'per pound' commitment from donors, e.g. a $1 pledge would cost supporters $20 if he meets his goal; a $2 pledge would cost $40 if he meets his goal, and so on. If he falls short of his goal, sponsors would still pay the amount of the pledge multiplied by the number of pounds he did lose.
To pledge, please contact him via email at grendelsan[at]gmail.com with the amount/lb you would like to donate. Once the 30-days is finished, he will send out email reminders to all pledges detailing what they will need to contribute. He will collect all funds via Paypal and then donate those funds directly to the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association.
THANK YOU, JOHN FOR THIS FANTASTIC INITIATIVE!
AND HEARTFELT THANKS TO ALL WHO WILL HELP HIM ACCOMPLISH HIS GOAL!
