The Jack and Te ramp drive: WE DID IT.

November 21st, 2007 (02:06 am)

WE DID IT.

And by "we," I mean YOU.

We have MET and EXCEEDED the goal. The Amazon account is standing at $3,154, and Betty got 89.11 through Paypal, from folks who didn't have credit cards, for a total of $3,243.11. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who donated, everyone who pimped the fundraiser, everyone who cheered us on. I just broke the news to Te, who is overwhelmed. Look for her voice post tomorrow; I'll link it.

Te and Jack will have a ramp. I'm officially calling the fundraiser over; we'll let you know how things go, and hope to have the ramp built as soon as humanly possible. I'll be posting the receipts from the contractor, and any overages will go to charity to help disabled folks deal with situations like this.

Thank you. All of you.

Wank fandom squee

::tears up:: Wow. Wow. See, this is one of those moments that makes all the wank and pretentious people and crap worthwhile. This is why I love fandom so damn much.

That's awesome. I wasn't able to donate due to a lack of both credit card and PayPal (I'm slightly paranoid about getting into debt), but I've been quietly cheering this along. Congrats to everyone who took part. :-)
