Thank you,
P.S. Here is a guide on ways you can help spread the word:


4. Support The #PotatoChallenge Participants! They are planning to survive the way Mark Watney did in The Martian. That means living on only water and potatoes for the duration of the challenge. But they can earn “perks” every time we reach a new goal in the amount of money raised. That’s where you can help– Every time you tweet about the challenge, share participant’s tweets, or post updates on Facebook and Instagram, it will help spread the word and bring in donations and that will get them their “perks.” Make sure you use the hashtages #GivetoMarsDay, #gtmd2015, and #PotatoChallenge, and add the link to donate:
