"Amazing + What You Can Do Next Week + LR Update" in help_haiti.
We've added the numbers. We've checked them all twice.
Not quite half of the pledges have been confirmed yet, and we still have a few more pages to check through in the Lightning Round, but at this point, we can state that over $50,000 has already been donated to various relief organizations to help Haiti rebuild.
And if all the pledges are kept and the sums donated, help_haiti will have raised nearly $115,000.00.
Nearly one hundred and fifteen thousand dollars.
I want to use sparkly text and fireworks and a very large font, but for the sake of decorum, I won't. You can in the comments section, though!
And that doesn't even include the "on the side" donations that so many of us have done in thanks for the wonderful Offerors who've gone above and beyond their offer to write additional stories, create additional art, bake extra cookies, etc. Nor does it include all the rounding up people are doing - donating ten when their total was seven, or a hundred dollars when their total was eighty eight bucks.
As of now, there are 40 pages of confirmed donations - the sum of the confirmed donations is $43142.82.
As of now, the total confirmed as donated from the Lightning Round is just about $7,000.
Yes, that is over fifty thousand dollars in confirmed donations - plus we know at least three thousand additional dollars have been donated through people rounding up and our wonderful Anon who donated $1500 to UNICEF.
We haven't tallied the totals from the Requests yet, but we are sure they will be lovely, glorious and spectacular.
To sum this up, there are confirmed donations of $43,142.82 and a total pledged amount of over $155,000.00.
Way to go, folks!
