What is Seed Madness?
Seed Madness is a competitive style fundraiser with eight different teams consisting of Participants, staff and board members, interns, and volunteers vying to win the honorary title of the “Top Seed” and a special prize. EarthLinks supporters will work diligently for three weeks in March to raise points for their teams, and the team with the most points by April 3rd at 4pm will become the winner. Every Monday we will list the team standings. Check our Facebook, Instagram, and email newsletters to get real-time updates.
