… on a personal note, I’m incredibly humbled by and thankful to the people that bid on my auction items (three social media makeovers). I hoped I’d get bids of $50 or so to help Susan. The winning bids came in at:

Which means that I helped bring in a whopping $425 for Susan from The Great Balancing Act! (She, by the way, is Gobsmacked…)

But those numbers pale in comparison to what we as a community did.

  • $23,210 in winning bids
  • $3,222 (and growing!) in paypal cash donations
  • $26,432 total amount raised

And as awesome as the money is, I’m nerdy over some other numbers, too.
