OH MY GOODNESS! We did it!! Our last big match was met, I threw Cynthia's match money into the kitty, and we just rolled past the $100,000 mark!
WE DID IT!!! WE RAISED ALL OF THAT IN ONLY 12 days!
It's funny, but this is my 8th FUNdraiser now, and I always know the end is coming and at some point we're going to roll past our goal, but I am never prepared for it. It always hits me right in the gut and I cry the hardest, happiest tears you can ever imagine. And then I call a bunch of my friends who are criers, and we cry more happy tears together.
Thanks for the good cries, dear ones.
Your generosity is inspiring. Your hearts are as big as they come. Your love for all the cats and kittens is vast.
I AM FAR FROM DONE THANKING YOU. I just had to let you know that our kitten mission was accomplished!
Now, I've got to make some more calls, high-five some kittens, high-six some kittens, kiss my patient husband, hug Charlene and Wylla, and get some coffee. I HAVEN'T HAD ANY COFFEE YET TODAY!
NOW, kick your feet up everyone and relax. You've been working hard. Maybe fall asleep on a deep, shag rug with a tiny magazine.
How does that sound, Tegan? You earned a nap. WE ALL DID.
I'll be back soon. Until then, just think about how special you are. Meditate on the goodness of this group. Feel all of this kindness.
Huge hugs all around!
