    That's hardly a very round number, is it? My OCD forces me to even it up :p

    You mean after this donation drive concludes? Sure. Just keep in mind that what we raise by the end of the year will go to her in the form of a single cheque. Anything that comes in afterwards will be delayed a few months, that is to the point where it makes sense issuing another cheque.

    Well, since Silvery has made 2 donations of $100 each, if I'm hugely generous, then so is she! (Probably even moreso, since I suspect I can afford it better than she can.) :)

    Edit: as a completely off-topic aside, I saw Rahkir's avatar, and thought for an instant that JSBB was back.

    That's just what my little sister says about the money I give her! Though describing it as being for "college" is probably stretching things a bit :lol:.

    Completely off topic reply; I don't know who JSBB is sadly, though I like this avatar.


    On topic, I'm very glad we could beat the $1000 mark! ^_^

    I spent most of my money on the children for Christmas, so I wish I could donate more to achieve the $1500 goal, but maybe in a few days; I work 12s fri-sun with holiday/overtime pay, if I'm not in debt after paying off the new ps3, DS, big screen TV, cellphone and multitude of clothing/jewelry that the girl-child asked for, I'll coin a few more to the cause.

    [​IMG] Déise has made the largest donation to date - a whopping $250 for the cause. That now brings the total to $1550!

    Anybody want to do matching funds? I'd be good for another one-time $50 load-in if someone else wants to donate $50, meaning you'd actually be responsible for a $100 donation. :)

    If there's a taker out there, please state so publically here so as to make sure I'm held to my end.

    I was going to make it anonymous, but I can't resist locking up Gaear's hard-earned cash like that! :evil: Here's $50 from me. It's all I can give, but it's Christmas after all!

    Merry Christmas, 8people! :hello:

    Hi 8people,

    I'm a long time lurker of the Boards and don't know you personally (or anyone else for that matter). I visit the boards daily and thought about supporting it and it's community in some way. I first thought about donating just to SP, but then I saw this thread and read the story behind it, your story. I was touched by it and this community's reaction to it.

    I'm healthy (apart from a little case of astma) and can do whatever I want to do, you don't. That's why I donated half my Christmass bonus to you.

    Have a merry christmass and I hope the Boards donations will help you in your quest for a more mobile life!

    Mark

    [​IMG] OK, so here's the latest total...

    $100 from Drugar, $50 from NOG and another $50 from Gaear... which brings the total to $1750! :)

    Just... wow. We'll hit the 2k mark before the end of the year at this rate!
