$2,484 on the fundraising thermometer this morning! Just $16 shy of the halfway point.
This is thanks to a one-two punch of generosity by RZ and TW (building on the foundation laid by 26 other donors).
Wednesday, the 16th, is hump day for the Final Fundraiser. That’s the day it’s halfway over — which makes the timing for this morning’s leap feel propitious. Thank you all for making this a very un-Mondaylike Monday.
UPDATE: Reader JC makes it an even $2,500!
I confess, knowing how much some people like to round off numbers, I considered being sneaky and waiting to see if three or four people would PayPal.me $16. But although I can think sneaky, I can’t be that sneaky. JC deserves his moment of fame.
Now OTOH, I know there are other readers who like odd numbers more than even ones. Occasionally in past fundraisers we’ve had the Odds and Evens trying to trump each other. So if any of you are feeling a bit Odd today, go ahead … wreck that nice, elegant round figure. I dare you. (Preferably with something more than a buck, if you don’t mind. Also, one friendly Odd already learned that the thermostats don’t deal with anything to the right of a decimal point (when he donated $11.19). Just FYI.)
