So that we can move ahead with the ad/donation to charity, if you would like to make a contribution to the "Cactuskate fund" but haven't yet... please mail your contribution by the end of this week, Friday, May 3.

If you really, really want to send something but can't by that date, once we decide on a charity, you can always send a check directly to them. (Or even to me for inclusion with the charity check.) Just email me if, for some reason, you want to take part but can't send anything by Friday.

So, last call for procrastinators! Find an envelope, borrow a stamp, and get your check in the mail by the end of the week! /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If you are late coming to the party, you can still email me for my address. (Or if you've already emailed me, but lost it. /infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed so far. We should be able to move forward on the ad very soon. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Oh! I forgot to add... Heidi now has TWO (count 'em, TWO! /infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ) Canadian "cheques," so with the $1800-odd I already have, I believe we have now broken the $2000 mark.

Wow. /infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Boy, we have a lot of procrastinators on this board. I've gotten a LOT of emails in the past couple hours! /infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

(Just giving y'all a hard time... I can procrastinate with the best of them. /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif )

I don't want to leave anyone out... if you're interested, please go right ahead and email me. Don't worry about being too late! /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So is one of Heidi's cheques from her and the other from Han's?

Just Joking!!!! /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Or Bucksnort and Jair?

Must confess that I walked by an orthopedic shoe store today called Birkenstock, and had a momentary pang of...celebration. /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Indeedie, though, 'twas Bucksnort and Tin's cheques I received this week - so thank you both.

One last bump!

Ye olde procrastinators need to get your check in the mail today (or tomorrow at the very very latest). If you can't do that for some reason, but still want to contribute, just let me know and we'll work something out.

It's still not too late to email me or Heidi for our snail-mail addresses! /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Current tally: we have about $2200, from about 75 contributions. Pretty damn impressive...

Yeesh, since when does a topic get bumped to the end of page 2 in 4 hours! /infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif /infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

ONE last reminder... there's still time to get to the post office! /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Sent mine to you yesterday, Erin... /infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif Who, procrastinate, me?

Although I sent a donation via a Paul Brown book I sent to ETBW who in turn sent a donation to Erin, I did finally get around to posting a cheque to Erin.

I didn't know who to make it out to though /infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Did we ever find out Cactuskate's favorite charity? Or is the BB going to vote for one?

Because I'm too lazy to go searching through threads ( /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ) could you review the plans for the donations?

Thanks for organizing all this. And thanks to Heidi too!
