Thanks for putting me out 394 bucks!

Actually, that’s $444 bucks, given to Doctors Without Borders (in monthly installments, because help is gonna be needed for a long time to come) and Partners in Health (one donation for immediate assistance).

394 Comments + 50 bucks in Smackdown money = $444

With our comment matchers, one of whom was matched by the Canadian government, plus another commenter who just threw in a hundred bucks that’s $2070, not counting the people who have now started doing this on their own blogs (Kay at the Keyboard is still going!).

And my black heart grew three sizes that day. COMMENCE WARM FUZZIES.

  1. Keep plugging mine…it goes through next Friday noon. If it gets up high enough, I may well need to go the monthly payment route….but like you say, they’ll need help for a long time to come. It’s little enough for me to do, here in my warm dry house with plenty to eat and drink and people I love around me.

  2. My donation has been made. Red Cross is now $444 richer, and hopefully that will be able to do some good for those in need. Thanks again, Michelle; I’ve never felt so good parting with so much money at one go.

  3. as a PIH employee who works in Haiti and LOVES your blog, I can’t thank you enough for the awesome show of support! Mesi anpil!!
