Okay folks, just under $1000 to go. Let's get this done by the end of the weekend! Thanks to all who have donated already.

And here's a bump: We're at 85%, people, not too far to go. Let's get it done!

Put it to you this way: If we can top the goal by midnight GMT, I'll kick in another $50 just to seal the deal. (If you all knew how cheap I am in real life, you would be truly flabbergasted by this challenge!!! tongue.gif )

Heck, I'll go one better: If we can reach $6000 by 0001 GMT 2 Oct I'll change my icon to a ballerina in a tutu for a full week!

So, if you can, please donate, if for no other reason than to make a heartless robot cry. I'll both love and hate you for it...

I get calls all the time from Firemen, Policemen, Children's hospitals...all good charities and I've had to turn them all down. The last 3-4 years have been very tough on me, government job with no raise in pay but everything else going up up up. Still, I love this forum, so I have added my meager contribution. Long live UMSF!

Thanks very much, Mizar. I'm not a rich guy either, by any means...but UMSF is so worth it, in so many ways. smile.gif

"Meager" or "large" is only meaningful in proportion to one's means -- even a dollar or two gets us closer to the goal, but more importantly it helps to show how many people think UMSF is a valuable resource. I don't mind seeing 10, 5, even 1-dollar donations come in -- quite the reverse.

Ordinarily I don't approve of animated gif avatars, but nprev's challenge proved irresistible. If we make the $6000 goal by 0001 GMT on October 2, nprev's avatar will have to be this for the week:

(Pretty proud of my handiwork there...)

The two youngsters in your avatar. Are they yours? If so, when was it taken?

I would really love to donate, but I'm traversing hard times sad.gif (I'm hosting and feeding by a friend and always looking for a job).

Ant103, what Emily said & more: It's gonna get better; I been there too.

Emily, well done indeed! Open question is if you guys are gonna make me put that thing on my profile??? That might take me down a peg, perhaps even two!!!

Woo! We made the $5000! Thanks everyone! Any extra at this point will go to pay our June bill (another $1000) and support there not being an annoying fundraising drive until a year from now. And if we raise that in 24 hours, bring on the dancing robot.
