Grand Total: $37,420! Thank you!
Our extended appeal and matching challenge ended on February 29. We exceeded our original goal of $20,000 by quite a lot, as you can see! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed, especially Stuart PC, our matching grant donor.
Thank you again! You made this possible - we thought our original goal of $20,000 was a little ambitious, and you gave almost double that amount.
