We are three and a half hours away from the end of our fundraiser. In just the past two hours, we’ve gotten quite a few generous donations, as in several $250, $150, and $100 contributions,) as well as a lot of $10 and $25 donations. It’s particularly gratifying to get support from readers we know from comments as well as fellow writers/bloggers (for instance, Bruce Krasting and Stuart Zechman, as well as George Bailey from Occupy the SEC). And the total number who’ve given in the last hour is again higher than the hour before that.
I’m thrilled at the response. We’re close to both our donor and financial targets. We are at 940 donors towards our goal of 1000 and at $2900 towards our last goal of $8500 for intern support (read here why they aren’t free!). Let’s see if we can meet these goals before the close of this effort, midnight PDT. Join us and participate via our Tip Jar, WePay, which is a credit card portal, further down in the right column, or you can send a check made out to Aurora Advisors Incorporated to Aurora Advisors Incorporated, 903 Park Avenue, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10075 (be sure to send an e-mail, “check is in the mail” with the total in the body of the message so we can count your donation in our tally).
So, last chance. Be one of the 60 or so we need to push this effort over the top.
If you can give a little, give a little. If you can give more, give more. If you can give a lot, give a lot. You are investing in being part of the solution.
