24 hours from now....
It's going to be lots of Blogathon talk from here on. It's just about 24 hours away and I've got a lot to talk about.
First, Misha announces an outstanding surprise regarding the efforts of Lair, Meryl and myself on behalf of Magen David Adom:
URGENT UPDATE: One Loyal Citizen (who has asked for anonymity which, of course, will be respected) has emailed us and pledged to match any and all donations from the Loyal Citizenry, dollar for dollar, up to $1,000.
We're astounded by the generosity of this pledge, to say the very least.
As am I. You can sponsor, if you haven't already, right up until the closing bell of the blogathon.
If you have sponsored me due to Misha's generous reader's offer, please email me and let me know so I can keep a tally.
In addition to the amounts the three of us have been pledged separately, generous, wonderful people have already donated $2,910 directly to MDA in the name of the blogathon, bringing our grand total to $9114.00 thus far. We are very pleased.
You can find more information on MDA, the blogathon itself, and how to sponsor on top of this page and in my sidebar.
I'd also like you to take a look at that long, long list of supporters in my sidebar. They all have pledged their hard-earned dollars towards this cause and intend to give them the best blogathon experience ever. Thank you one and all.
Some people have emailed saying they just can't afford to pledge right now (trust me, I understand that), but they would like to help me in some way.
Stay tuned for that. There are many ways in which you can help me out which will not cost you a dime, but which I will be incredibly thankful for. More on that later.
