So, that's it. Two months of fundraising and talking endlessly about cancer, sick kids and the like, and we have finally reached the finish line.
Let me share with you how we did. First, let me share with you how I did last year without you, in better economic times...
Finish: 28 Donors, $1620.
This year, out of ROUGH economic times, your huge hearts brought this...
Finish: 73 Donors (you), Grand Total.....
And I mean...SICK. You came out, you supported the cause, you looked the goal in the eye, and proceeded to kick its meager ass. In fact, out of 150 shavees, you made me the #1 earner of both venues. Simply remarkable.
This is not about me, but I want you to know that this meant the world to me...what an amazing thing you have done.
So next, contest results, and video...I hope to have contest results on Monday, and video asap as soon as I can do some editing.
Plus, this coming Tuesday, a very special Tuesday's Tribute...well, special to me anyway, but I'll be posting something that I have never used before...it's been sitting on my computer for 8 years, waiting for its purpose. I hope you like it.
Thank you, my friends...we made a HUGE difference.

posthumous pointerTo laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded. - Emerson
