Charity Drive Success!

Happy New Year everyone. Thanks for all your support.

Here are the final tallies.

Against Malaria: 30,108
MIRI: 32,320

Massachusetts Bail Fund: 3000
Deworm the World: 7980

Total: $70,408

After the drive ended, another $4000 has been pledged towards http://www.reg-dfs.org/donate/ , and $17,452 came in for Against Malaria on the day after the drive, which REG DFS has agreed to triple.

 

This would bring the final totals

$70,000 donated

$70,000 matched by Dan and I

$5230 doubled by https://doublethedonation.com/miri

$4408 to be tripled by Reg

$17,452 towards AF which will be tripled by Reg

 

Including all the matching, this is a total of $210,854 raised for charity. If I were taxed at 40%, my $35,000 donation only costs me $21,000, and went very, very far. Matching can be a incredibly effective tool.  Even without running a drive, there are usually some great options available on the internet, if you were to look. Taking advantage of the tax write off can also make a very large difference.

Thanks again!

Charity Drive Over

Wanted to clarify the charity drive is over. I will do a proper write up when less hungover, but we cleared the goal by a sizeable margin. Happy New Year.

There is a great tripling challenge going on here http://www.reg-dfs.org/donate/ for those interested. Even if you don’t believe in the idea of a meta charity, every dollar donated still leads to $1.5 going to Against Malaria, and then the additional freeroll over $1.50 going to REG.
