Update 22 – Emergency Fundraiser – Postmortem
The Fundraiser is over and it was a squeaker. As of midnight, the Indiegogo tally was $2,735.00. But Fractured Atlas, the site which acts as an umbrella for me and a lot of Non-Profit Foundations, showed additional contributions that weren’t figured into the Indiegogo tally.
In the end, we managed to raise a total of $4,352.96!
$350 over our goal. And that is WONDERFUL!
This would not have happened if it wasn’t for the amazing support of people like you – the ones who contributed and told your friends and kicked in some more, even after you contributed.
Not only does this fill me with hope and encouragement, it also makes abundantly clear that I’m doing something right.
My deepest and most sincere thanks go to all of you who supported me and continue to support Past Daily and the cause of History and keeping the curiosity going. You’re the ones who are making a difference in this life – and that’s why we can never give up.
I’ll be here as long as you are – and I will continue to post and research and make available all the recordings from the Archive every day – no matter what.
I owe you a debt of gratitude I only hope to pay forward.
