Many many many thanks need to be given out today.
To all the contributing authors,
Y'all are absolutely amazing. Thank you for believing in this cause. Thank you for donating your time and stories. This definitely would not have been possible without any of you! When I started this I seriously thought only lie 5 people would sign on. To have over 100 authors blew my mind! Thank you just doesn't seem enough, but I don't know have enough money to send you all flowers, candy and balloon, so it will have to suffice!
A special thank you goes out to Kathleen & Henriette for their beautiful t-shirts and to Terra and Bobby Long for sending the extremely special signed copy of "A Winter Tale." Each of you exceeded my expectations in that department as well!!! I know our winners were VERY happy!!!
To all the donators,
Each one of you is simply awesome as well. Are you ready for the grand total that YOU made happen???
OH MY WORD IS RIGHT!!! I never in my wildest dreams expected to reach that amount! So thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!! This is such a huge amount to go to a cause that doesn't get enough recognition. It is a cause that is extremely close to my heart so for this to go this far means a lot.
Thank you to each one of the women who took the time to share their stories for me to post as inspiration on the blog. It just goes to show how truly important everyone's time and effort was. The money you donated is helping women and men like this escape volatile relationships and continue on to live much happier and healthier lives!!!
Also, thank you to the ladies that helped me set this fundraiser up and supported me along the way. Especially Heather, web designer extraordinaire! She helped glam up the blog!
Thanks to all the blogs who posted information about the fundraiser on their site!! And to those who re-blogged, tweeted, facebooked, etc. A million kisses and hugs to each of you!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!! Without ALL of you this would have never been possible! These two words never feel like enough for me for everything everyone has done to help!!! It has been amazing!
