As we come to the end of our first season blogging, it’s with great pride that I can announce the amazing fans of this blog have raised $1,375 for the hungry, so far. Our thanks to the donors, and the readers too, who raised revenue by tolerating (and sometimes even clicking) the sidebar ads. If you find yourself inclined to donate, our fundraiser will continue through New Years’ Eve. All donations go directly to the hunger-relief charity Feeding America.
And of course, thank you for the many submissions via Twitter and Facebook—especially Moriah, Ian, Angel, Alessandra and Carrie. And to everybody who’s supported our efforts with baked goods and so much more, like Gordon, Sarah and Ellie, and doubtless many I’ve forgotten here. Basically, if you find yourself reading this, you deserve a thank-you.
So Merry Christmas! Happy Kwanzaa! I hope that whichever winter holiday you celebrated this year—Hanukkah, Eid-al-Fitr, or just a little extra vacation—brought you joy and plenty of cookies.
