Good morning! I hope everyone has recovered from all the excitement that was the LA premiere of New Moon and the debacle that was Anya Marina on the red carpet for MySpace - ugh! - she's dead to me! Her and her song that she couldn't stop blabbing about, too!
Anyhoo, thought I would give everyone a sort-of update on the fundraiser! As someone thoughtfully pointed out in the comments the other day, we can't really say exactly how much we have raised in case we have some friendly competition - don't want to show our hand prematurely! [sorry - it's early and I am already late for work and don't have time to go back and find the comment to give proper credit here but please remind me!]. But I CAN say that we're amazed by everyones generosity! We are doing...well-ish. Of course it's impossible to predict how much it will take to actually win the auction; I am not sure we're there yet but I think we really have a shot at it!
With that in mind, if you have already donated, THANK YOU!!! Really - you rock!!! Your button will be on its way soon! We are mailing some out every day... There are a LOT of envelopes to be addressed... Jenny Jerkface and I feel like Angela and Bella, sitting down to tackle those thank-you notes in New Moon. Except we're slower than them... And I might have to order more buttons before it's all said and done (Lily Guillotine, you've been warned!). So please be patient!
And if you HAVEN'T donated yet??? Well??? OK, I know that not everyone has the means to donate. I also know that The Fandom Gives Back is running their awesome author auction fundraiser this week (they hit the $15,000 mark last night - yay FGB!) and that some of your donations are already earmarked for that fab cause. That's cool. BUT we still need your help if you can swing it!
We will be accepting donations until at least some time late Wednesday and likely into Thursday.
