Fundraising update: Step 1, done!

The blog is up and operational today, September 1st, which equates to good news on the fundraising front.

We’ve been able to raise enough money to ensure that Bluehost will continue to host the Malik Report for another year, and there’s an extra $100 left over to transfer to the prospect tournament/training camp pool.

I want to thank everybody involved for being so very kind in helping out!

Now the focus shifts toward the 14 days between now and me leaving for Traverse City for 2 weeks and 1 day. We need to raise about $2,500 to get the trip done (thanks to increases in the hotel rate and the prices of gas and groceries).

While we don’t need to be 100% there for September 14th, the goal is to get as much fundraising done between now and two weeks from now, so:

If you’re willing to help me raise the $600 for my server bill, and/or what’s getting closer and closer to $3,000 for the Traverse City trip, you can use Paypal at, Venmo at, Giftly by using my email,, at, and yes, you can contact me via email if you want to send me a paper check.

Thank you again for your readership and your time!
