Thanks to you all, around 11pm on Thursday, June 11th ('cause I do my best work late at night) I was able to make donations to these two positive forces in our community.
I feel conflicted about sharing the amount, I'm not sure what's etiquette or not, but I will say this - I had a hopeful amount and I had a "wouldn't it be amazing" amount in mind. The "amazing" amount was double the hopeful amount and you actually hit that amount. Thank you for your help and enthusiasm with this. Because I like being held accountable, if you would like to know the amount for your own purposes, please message me. I'm happy to share.
Thanks again everyone!
