Hey everyone! I just want to say, thanks for all of the donations!
You all had me scared for a while there...but now I am suddenly down to only needing $441 to meet my goal.
I'd like to thank you all for donating, and if you know anyone who would like to kick in $5 or whatever, just let them know. This thing is small enough now that we can easily nickel-and-dime it to death.
Here's the link to my donation page, in case you know someone who might have an extra couple of bucks in their pockets.
I'd especially like to say thank you to those of you who contributed even though you have no idea who I am, and those who contributed anonymously.
I am floored at the number of $100 and $50 and $25 donations. Magenic (where Rocky works) contributed $256.00 in matching funds for donations from employees.
Readers of Rocky's blog contributed. Geekgoddes and Alenaae each plugged my fund drive on their blogs and both brought in contributions.
It's really nice to be part of something like this and see the generosity of people.
Thank you for your money, your time, and your support. I am very grateful for all of you.
Here's the score so far! The walk is in two weeks, but the donations page will be accepting donations until October 22...at which point any remaining funds that I have not earned will be charged to my credit card. A prospect which, because of your actions in the last couple of weeks, is not nearly as scary as it was a couple of weeks ago.
