Honeys, I’ve got good news and bad news. Which do you want first?
The good news is 17360. That’s right.
That’s how much money we raised when I tallied this morning. That’s over $3,000 in ONE FREAKING DAY! Nothing like waiting until the last minute! LOL! I checked this morning and the registry was closed but I opened it up again for just today. I WANT $18,000!!! This whole thing started out with a “To Life” theme with the whole Double Chai and everything. Well, there nothing more CHAI than 18 (which is the number the hebrew letters for the word for life add up to) so let’s do it. I promise I won’t ask for anymore money. Well, at least not until we do this again next year. GO HERE TO GIVE! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
I’ve got ONE MORE PRIZE to annouce as well. This one was actually offered up pretty early, but stupid me lost track of the email when things got going so she gets her very own spotlight.
The book isn’t do to be released until October, but the winner will get their hot copy right off the presses a bit early. THANK YOU Shannon! This is definitely one I’ll want on my book shelf!
Okay. I said there was bad news, right. Well, it’s not really bad, it just impatient kind of bad. I know I promised you a great long post with lots of pictures about last Saturday’s actual Spin Out. I kinda sorta lied. But I didn’t know I was lying!!! I swear. Turns out when the fabulous chicas, Jillian and Amy, at Knittyspin found out that Wild Fibers didn’t want my article anymore, they pounced! So I’m writing the article for them – look for it sometime next week. And, of course, when it’s there you’ll hear from me! This is a really really good thing for all of us, but I’m sorry if some of you are disappointed.
Of course, now I have to go BACK to writing the article. My sister and the kids are coming today and I spent all day yesterday cleaning bathrooms and I was going to write all night and then I fell asleep. It’s coming Jillian! It’s coming!
Tomorrow I will annouce our final Heifer total and I will start awarding prizes on July 4th – at which time I will pick the GRAND PRIZE SPINNING WHEEL WINNER! Then I will announce a winner or two every day until I’m done with prizes. I’m hoping to have at least 15 VERY impressive gift bundles. Maybe more. Prizes are STILL rolling in!
I know I’ve said it a million times, but this time I mean it. 😉
