THANK YOU so much to everyone who joined, boosted, upgraded, or helped us spread the word about MaxFunDrive. It’s been so nice to interact with so many of you over the last two weeks! We genuinely couldn’t do what we do without you. Our 2021 MaxFunDrive has officially ended, but now we enter into MAXFUNDRIVE WEEKEND BONUS DAYS. (We used to call this Weekend Amnesty, but that’s kind of a weird name, huh? So now we’re just going with Bonus Days.) It’s a MaxFunDrive tradition to include the Saturday and Sunday after the Drive as part of MaxFunDrive.
So if you just missed the Drive, ran some numbers, figured out you want to boost, or decided you just really need that bonus content, you’ll have until Sunday night to still count towards our goal AND be eligible for those Drive-exclusive gifts!
A replay of our finale will be available next week!
We had a spectacular time counting down the end of the drive and watching a bunch of MaxFun hosts play games from MaxFun shows. You’re not gonna believe who won the Bovine Civic Pride Award! If you missed it or just want to relive it, we’ll be posting it on our YouTube as soon as we finish editing it, hopefully by Monday, if not before!
Everyone on our waiting list was matched with a gift membership!
The MaxFun community purchased 594 gift memberships for anonymous MaxFunsters this MaxFunDrive! Which means we were able to match up EVERY person on our waiting list with a $5 membership that someone had purchased. That’s an incredible outpouring of support for absolute strangers, and that is exactly the sort of thing that makes us so unbelievably proud to be a part of this community.
Gift memberships will be available to purchase all year long (both for friends and anonymous MaxFunsters). And if you are someone who would love to be a member, but can’t afford it at the moment, you can fill out this form to add yourself to the waiting list. Thank you! And a HUGE thank you to everyone who made someone’s day with a gift membership during the Drive. <3
Pin sale for charity starts Monday, May 17
Our pin sale starts Monday, May 17 and will close on Friday, May 28 at 11:59 PT. We’ll be sending more information on Monday morning, but we wanted to mention that all of the proceeds from this year’s sale will go towards EveryoneOn, an organization focused on bridging the digital divide.
All members can purchase our MaxFunDrive 2021 Nutsy pin, and all $10+ members can purchase pins from every show. This is the last year for a while that we’ll be having pins as a gift! So if you’ve been on the fence and decide you want some pins, you’ll have until noon PT on Thursday, May 27 to become a member. (If you do it before Sunday, you can still get in on the MaxFunDrive thank-you gifts, too!). All show pins will be $10 each and our Nutsy pin is $8 (not including tax and shipping & handling). Thank you again to Megan Lynn Kott for her five years of fantastic pin designs!
Thank-you gifts will take some time!
If you became a monthly member at the $10 level or above for the first time during this MaxFunDrive, or if you were able to upgrade to the next membership level, we’ll be sending you a special gift to say thanks for making that commitment! (Folks at the $5 level and up should already be able to dive into 200+ hours of bonus content!) Physical gifts are sent to production after the Drive and pin sale are over, so we know how many to manufacture. We also may encounter some delays since companies are still dealing with repercussions from the pandemic. We’ll keep you posted on the production process, but we expect gifts to start shipping in about three to four months.(And please keep in mind that cancelling your membership or changing your membership level before we send gifts to production may affect your gift eligibility.)
Managing your membership
If you ever need to change your listening habits, address, payment info, etc. you can go to maximumfun.org/manage and enter the email address associated with your membership to get a link to manage your account. That email and webpage will also always show you the bonus content password if you ever lose track of it. And of course, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there’s ever anything we can help out with!
Ok, I think that about covers it for now!
Thank you again! See you on Monday for more pin sale info AND more thanks!
