DOH!!! How we got to $778...

i need to increase the ticker on the right from 31 to 38 donors. for more info, read below.

We were so close... Oh-so close we were...

My father, god bless him, had been in the hospital with a UTI and something that he rarely uses the size of grapefruit. In my infinite concern for his health, I called his cell phone and left a loving and cheerful message. In my father happiness, he decided to put me over the $777.77 goal. Mind you he was medicated and his heart, which faces another ailment, has always been in the right place. This is really one of those jokes one might say, but never think could really happen.

For the past 24-hours I've been speechless, and now I wonder how to accomplish the next fundraising hurdle. Kris' matching donation would have sent me on the fast track to making this site public and therefore fundraising a good amount of the $7777 within two months.

Kris' new proposal is more intriguing than the last. Every day I have exactly seven donors, he'll make a donation also featuring the number seven. It's a ambiguously ambitious goal... One that makes, this next fundraising bout much harder.

I can only promise you that this is just the start of the interesting situations...

THANK YOU WEEKEND DONORS!!

I've been lazy - how you doing on this?

Sweeten the pot - in tandem with my earlier offer to make a random 7 donation each day you have 7 people donate, I'm also starting the remedial math fund.

Every time you veer off your path of $11.11 per person I'll correct it by rounding it up to the next $11.11 increment. In this case I just brought it up from $789.21 (not divisible by $11.11) to $799.92 (equal to 72 people giving $11.11 each). I guess I'll do this whenever I check the site and/or get bored...
