Happy New Year everyone. Thanks for all your support.
Here are the final tallies.
Against Malaria: 30,108
Massachusetts Bail Fund: 3000
Deworm the World: 7980
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 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.
