    Everyone's financial situation is different and we all do what we can. Don't worry about the amount, every dollar counts, it's going towards a great cause and it's a team effort. Thanks again for donating :)

    Ok you generous bastards,

    I've been planning all along to donate to this amazing project.

    But I figure why just doante when I can raise twice the amount!

    So here is the deal:

    I was planning on sending a few bucks to one of the charaties, and regardles I will be doing that. But one, or a few of you can make me give even more.

    It is now 3:30 PM PST.

    I will match all doantions made, dollar for dollar, unitl 7:30 PM PST tonight.
    (up to a hundred dollars in total matching funds, first come first serve until my hundred bucks is tapped out! I wish I could match more, but that has to be my limit.)

    So for the next 4 hours your donation is worth double.

    So donate!

    Ok, that's two donations that I have to match so far.

    Martin123012 got me first when he kicked in his donation.

    And then Envelopes RE-DONATED (is that a word?) even more dough just to get it matched.

    Just over two hours left and there's still matching money up for grabs...

    C'mon, I dare you to make me spend it!

    I know I said I wouldn't give any clues as to where we're at but $30 has been donated since he has offered to match. I will include his matching total into the total towards $7,000 if that makes sense.

    This is my first experience with a LIF and I'm happy that it is my first. The generosity in here is just amazing. Thanks to brad for organizing it and thanks to all the generous BAs for their donations. Just incredible.

    Well you scoundrels, you took it all.

    Thanks to everyone who kicked in and squeezed all hundred bucks from me!

    And just because my matching funds are all gone is no reason to stop giving...

    Lets keep it going!!

    I like it. Was hoping someone wouldn't just donate $10 to snipe a Bourbon DL...crisis prevented!

    Spider--just threw in another donation solely based on what you wrote. Education is absolutely the most important thing we have, and sometimes we seem to lose sight of this. Hopefully it doesn't take tragedies to see that.
