We are just $400 away from hitting the ceiling on the dollar-for-dollar donation match offer from my wonderful bosses at EarthBaby. With those matching funds, we go over ten grand. That means this becomes real. Because then we can start blocking out dates, making flight and hotel reservations, starting the visa process.

We're still working to hit our total goal, but this hurdle is the big one. Let's knock it out of the park!

Remember, any donation of $50 or more gets the collection of some of [personal profile] gridlore's best blog posts as compiled by two-time Hugo Award winner Christopher J Garcia. And there are still chances to become a character in Doug's NaNoWriMo project in exchange for a donation. "An excellent holiday gift," Doug notes, "and far more legit than those star registry scams!" Details here.

Thanks to everyone for your generosity and kindness. Y'all are amazing.

I keep staring at the numbers, and they don't get any smaller.

We're halfway there. Further than that, because we've maxed out the matching grant from my employers. We were going to deduct that $4K from the total to reflect the offline contribution, but that doesn't appear to be an option. (It's easier than asking my boss to make the donation, only to hand the funds right back to him to purchase the plane tickets, since he's the one with the frequent flyer miles.)

There will never be enough words to thank you all for this.
