Thank you all very much: final numbers

We did it! We've raised enough money to send all ten of the fans of color who asked for assistance to WisCon this year.

Particular thanks to popelizbet for all her help managing the auction and to Deb Stone for dealing with PayPal contributions by credit or debit card and contributing the processing fees. And thank you all who made suggestions, spread the word, donated, and offered or bid on items.

Some people have inquired about the future of this project, and I regret to say that I don't have answers to that question yet. I am trying to get my act together after being massively disrupted by a sick SteelyKid (no worries, she's much better today) and hope to have some things to report and options to discuss with you all soon.

Meanwhile, thanks again!
