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.

Step It Up

Commenters Melissa, Deb and Granny – who are all deeply, deeply awesome –  will be matching whatever my grand total is. Who else is up for it? Do it all at once, do it in monthly payments, match a portion, just do it.

You can give more than you think.

Thursday Night Giveback

Tonight, rather than spend my money on crab claws or lobster tails or vanilla beans or porterhouse steaks, I’ll be donating the average amount of a Smackdown to Haitian earthquake relief, and I’ll add another dollar for everyone who comments on this post before Saturday at noon EST.

If you did the same on your blog – whatever you can afford, a dollar per comment, a quarter per comment, a dime per comment – we could really shake some shit up.
