Thank´s to the anonymous donor that have promise to match all donations done from this morning to the end of the period (up to $10 000)

I was waiting with another $50 till the end of the founding period - lucky children :p - now it will be more to them.

Hey all - speed up your donation these last two days - every dollar will be worth the double for the kids.

I´m impressed of the amount of money donated - it is awesome - but - there is always a but - we are more than 115 000 registered users and for the moment (in the middle of the night US time) around 900 active. It is only 109 persons that have donate - for every percent of you out there that donate $1 will result in more than $1000 to the campaign. Do not be shamed of donating a low amount - it is not the amount that´s count in the long run - it is the number of people that donate that is important. To be honest - every one involved in this costly hobby could probably donate a $1 - for me living in Sweden is around 1/3 coup of good coffee at a coffee bar :p

So glad I waited to make my second donation because now it's doubled. Glad I am able to do this , even if it's not 10k, every little bit helps.
I can't wait to see pictures.

A quick calculation give that´s is around $3000 that have been donated since someone promise to match the donations that comes in the last days. - it means that we will we will surpass last year's results. Keep on donate and remember - a low amount from many people can many times beat high amounts from fewer people - especially when someone have promise to double up :p :p

I’m not sure if he has already matched or not though? I see a couple of Anonymous donations for $1000+ and nearly $3000 since then

@Turbo's Aquatics - My calculation was done with this in mind - my bold.

If you are willing to donate a dollar Ill match that dollar on the last day of the drive. Make a thousand-dollar donation, I’ll do the same and continue to do so until the 10k is gone. You get the picture.
But nerveless - $ 10 is $ 10 to the kids - even if not will be doubled. Come on all small donations.

många bäckar små -
ger en hel å :p

(help with translation-
bäckar små = small creeks
å = small river :D

I believe that the total was around $11,000 when that was posted actually, meaning we're +$7000 since then! There's actually 2 donations that add up to nearly $5500 alone in the last 14 hours so I think that whole $10K is going to be in play!
