As of 930am Pacific Time, the total amount raised is $6,030.12 which is unbelievable. I know it is still short of the goal of $6,500, but this is just mind blowing. I don't know how I will be able to thank of each of you, but I will certainly do my best. There are really no words for how much all of you mean to me. I kept reading all your notes and e-mails which came from all over the world, and I promise I will write all of you back. About 400 of you have donated, and I appreciate your generosity very much. This check is going to be much easier to write now, and whether you donated or not, I do the blog for all of you and I love doing it and thanks for helping me want to keep doing it in a daily basis. Well, except for weekends and traditional drinking holidays.
