    [​IMG] Hey guys,

    I just want to attempt to express my gratitude, I'm not sure I can find the words! (And I'm usually used to being at least semi-coherent :p)

    I am so touched by the support provided by everybody on this site and the kind words everyone has put forward. Thank you so much for the donations and friendship over the years.

    I've not said much in this thread, I've pretty much been too amazed to know what to say! I never expected anything like this would happen or that so much would be raised in such a short time span. I truly am eternally grateful.

    [​IMG] And we're up to $2400 thanks to Triactus's $100 donation!

    Thanks to everyone for their generosity in helping us raise much more than I dared to hope for - you've made me even prouder of our community than I've already been.

    The final sum that we'll be sending 8people is $2315! (PayPal takes out about 3.6%, so I rounded it up to a nicer figure.)

    [​IMG] I'm a bit late to this thread, but i wanted to show my appreciation for some advice 8people gave me a while back.
    Don't let my humble donation be the only one that comes after the big check, guys. It will be majorly unimpressive!:o

    8, when you sign the check for the bank, do you spell out 'eight' or use the number?

    :p

    I found out I sent out $70 more by mistake as I added Morgoth's donation (which 8people already received directly) to the total. So coineineagh's $50 donation covers a good part of that. ;)

    Chandos, sure.

    Wow, I've seriously got to stop by more often. Congradulations on the massive check 8. I plan to donate after the finances settle down. Now for a very serious question, have you decided on a chair?
