I have to put on my yellow waders and go through the Democratic Victory Task Force report (here), since a kind reader sent me a copy, and so this thank you note will be briefer than your generosity warrants.
You helped me meet the $2500 goal with dispatch; I left my desk, and when I returned, the job was done! And much sooner than I expected! In fact, when the checks are counted, and the contributions that went to Yves’s account are added in, you will have beaten the goal quite comfortably; I count $3300 (!!) now. So, no angst for Lambert over the fuel bill this year. You have no idea how much I appreciate that.
And I guess this result means that I should continue with Water Cooler. That’s nice!
Thank you again!
I’m sorry for the difficulties some of you had with PayPal; I have no idea what I did to fix the contribution at $25, and I was reluctant to make changes to PayPal in midstream. And I know the hat is too small; I’ll try to remedy that in the near future.
PS One donor used this fundraiser as an excuse to send a VERY large donation to Yves as well as a separate one for me. So don’t let the end of my fundraiser stand in the way of contributions to the Tip Jar, particularly for all the intense coverage on Greece. She also thanks you for your readership and your generous support of this fundraiser.
If you can send a postal address I’ll chip in a little. My card continues to be blocked by the Paypal engine, for both the Paypal and direct donation by card route. It works everywhere else on the internet, but for some reason not here! Paypal says I need to update my ID with them. I appreciate it’s a security measure that has nothing to do with NC or your blog, but it’s something I haven’t taken/found the time to contend with.
Consider it done, and thank you!
Adding, be sure to check your spam folder if the mail that I just sent doesn’t show up.
Congrats to Lambert. Still think you’re abominably wrong in your Ukraine coverage, but at the same time think you do provide excellent value to the site otherwise, and I’m genuinely happy to see the success of this.
Yves and Lambert, Keep up the good work. And when you need support let us know. We have your back.
Hope the weather improves soon there. Looked pretty miserable on the news when I saw it the other day.
Sometimes it can be hard to ask, but we’re here and we care.
Apologies for the late hit into the hat – I was gone to class and out of town/out of touch for the past buncha days.
Stay warm, keep the heater running, and tell us when you need more!
