I want to thank everyone who has donated... both the donors of the prizes, and all the amazing people who have purchased raffle tickets! I am going to spend the weekend counting tickets, and sorting into the proper raffles and begin drawing names for the raffle.
I also have to supply paypal and google with a "subordination" letter from the American Red Cross, which means that the Red Cross is aware that I have done fundraising for them and that they are expecting a donation. I should receive this letter by Monday to send to paypal. Once supplied to paypal, paypal will then release the funds to the Red Cross. I will post back later today the final donation amount.... It's pretty big... far more than I EVER expected.
Again, thank you to each and every one of you who has made this small little effort a HUGE HUGE HUGE success. I will be posting the winners here, but I will also email you if you have won anything. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Thanks and again!
