Seeing as we're almost into September, I figure it's time to wrap up on the latest fundraiser. Also, there's no way I'm going to dupe the traffic any time soon I got from "FISA in One-Syllable Words" or Lions, the Electoral College Series, Bar Talk or particularly Scared -- which somehow wandered everywhere from Schneier to Andrew Sullivan of all places. And some libertarian blogs who I think would be a little goddam disturbed if they read the rest of my site.
The grand total for the fundraising from May through August was, in mostly $5-10 increments, a fine $2,618.23
Rounded to $2,620 and then matched from my funds, you've raised $5,240 for Fisher House. Nicely done. A special thanks as always to conservative but still cool Gaijin Biker, top donor yet again. Great to see the ex-pats stepping up for the hometown team. And soon I will finally convince him not to read Malkin. But until then, still buds.
All-in, the readers of this site have raised (since we started fundraising) $26,440 for everything from Army relief, wounded veterans' families, to Pakistani earthquake victims to Katrina aid. Or, minus my matching fund, about eight hundred dollars a month in constant donations. And again, mostly in $5-10 dollar increments. Not bad for a dinky little screenwriting/gaming/comics/political rant website. Nicely done, Monkeys.
I'll leave the Fisher House link up for now, and sometime in October we'll pick another charity. Suggestions always welcome.
