Hi everyone - I'm back from Dallas, but only have a few minutes before I have to run Carson to training...
Wanted to update you all on the wonderful philanthrophy of the DGMS Blogmunity!
I arrived home this afternoon to find five checks in the mailbox - thank you to Thomas L, Christine K, Kimberly K, Michelle R (I know she'll love the movie passes and AMC giftcard too!), and Marion T!
So far, the total raised (remember, our goal was to help with the remaining $1500 of her tuition) is (drumroll, please?)... $2508.07!
(FYI: All Paypal money transfers get dinged fees - in this case ranging from 15 cents up to $3.20 depending on the size of the donation - which is why there is not a round number.)
If you would still like to donate, you can use the Paypal option, sending money to firstname.lastname@example.org or via check (please email privately for instructions). I will be waiting till the end of the week to get a final tally from any additional checks on their way, etc, then coordinating everything with Shannon and her mother to best distribute this for Mae's tuition, transportation, books, etc.
Again, I am completely blown away by the generosity of everyone who calls DGMS home, and I am so very proud of what we are doing!
