By the way, this challenge will affect many more than 1000 households because an increment will fall short of meeting the challenge, nearly all attempts will influence people who become aware of just one of them, and untold numbers will be inspired to act when the 1000th to meet the challenge is verified and celebrated.

The announcement of the verification of #1000 will be a high point, not a conclusion.

Hi Bill.  It's great to hear from you about your initiative.

If you're game, I suggest making your message (copy & paste would be fine) a free-standing discussion with a title that makes your request clear to all 900+ members.  To do it, click on  + Start Discussion  in the center column of the home page.

Additionally/alternatively, the author of this blog on this site might have some tips.
