Okay--if you guys don't mind, I'd like to know how much readers of this journal--i.e., people who donated because they heard about here--have donated, so that we can tally it up. Correction/update: Since this has caught on across LJ, we're going with anyone who donated because they heard about it on LJ (or FW), period. If you don't have a LJ, you can leave an "anonymous" comment below with or without your name, and I'll add it in. I've made it so that no one sees the answers but me (and if it were possible to let people answer anonymously, I would have done that). I honestly don't care who donated what, and I'm not checking off a list of usernames or anything. I just want to be able to come up with a total so we can say, "See, even when you pitch in just a dollar, it makes a difference!"

How much did you donate to

Write in whatever you want. Basically I'm looking for answers in the "$1.00" format, but if you did end up contributing an item instead of cash, write that in, too. If you weren't able to donate, that is totally okay--I was flat crap-ass broke last year and wouldn't have been able to do anything myself. But if you can, and if you did, please let me know so I can gauge the sum of y'all's efforts. : )

ETA 12/10/04 3 pm: Mom says we're up to about $1904, including things in the mail that haven't reached Sapphire yet, but not including donations only mentioned in the comments (like anonymous/non-LJ people), which I'll have to check against the master list and add in later.

I'm going to go ahead and talk about some unrelated things in this entry so that we keep the fundraising part on top for a while:

1. There will be no Lost recap tonight. I can do it tomorrow, however. I will definitely be watching the show (The Good Ship OMG!), but I'm taping it so I can watch it again and do a proper recap tomorrow, because today is Come to Jesus Day (as my mother would say) in terms of getting my paper done and reading Samson Agonistes and studying for the exam, all of which are tomorrow.

2. These are ridiculously expensive, but I did just get an email from the New Line store about "authentic" Elvish cloaks and scarves for sale.

3. Speaking of which, all these Elvish cloaks and Ravenclaw scarves have given me this urge to... knit. My grandmother taught me a little when I was really young, but I've forgotten it, mostly. I'm starting to think I might make it a New Year's resolution to learn to knit. Thoughts? Suggestions for beginners?
