Okay...Donation made. Smile

Now, still waiting on some feedback for that 'donation auction' I'm willing to do. Is there any interest in this at all?

I agree. I don't believe Lorenzo was ever reimbursed for last year, although I could be wrong. He should certainly be reimbursed ahead of time this year. As far as the domain name, that's only $10 a year, and I look at it as my financial contribution to the organization.

i seem to recall that lorenzo got paid off after the fact except for a chunk of cash that he 'donated'. but, yes.. we should get him his dollars pre-'payment due'.

thank you for the domain, blaise!

Well... MAIL just received a $250 donation from Urban Maille ChainWorks !!!

While I'm at it MAIL also received $10 from Eric Mount and $20 from
Christopher Wright. These 2 donations alone would have made it a goood week for fundraising.

Account is at $477.75 USD

I think we've covered for web hosting.

Most excellent!

I move we immediately cut a check to Lorenzo for this year's webhosting fees.

Someday I'm going to have time to rig up an automated recognition system...

$250? Which of our members is Urbanmaille? You should come on out and take a bow!

Holy Crap!

That's so awesome. Just think about how much of a donation that is. Think about how much time you'd have to put into chainmaille to turn a profit of $250. This person gave that much away.

Thank you thank you thank you. I only hope that MAIL has helped you in turn by providing you the resources to make that much money.

Blaise, if this was a paypall donation, send that email address a reply with this thread in it.

I am even more ashamed of not donating anything yet.

Aislyn at UrbanMaille is a regular on the About.com and Delphi forums. UrbanMaille itself is quite well-known (and well-respected) as a supplier of sterling silver rings, although it seems that they have more of a presence on those forums. They're good folks.

I was startled to run across this thread today and thought I'd better post and say hello and uh... mention that I'm not Nancy. MAIL is a wonderful resource and I'm grateful to be in a position to contribute in some way to its upkeep. Thanks to all of you who do the work. *s*

P.S. Thanks for the kind words, Theresa. *hugs*
