    I'm glad to see that the goal has been met.
    But don't let that stop you from donating.
    Let's see how high we can make it go!

    If we reached $ 10, 000 I promised to be quiet and shout my mouth but as usually - I can´t.

    Its fantastic that we reach $10, 000 but I must tell you another fine story.

    Since 10 years ago – The Swedish TV and Radio run a public collection for Children interest somewhere in the world. Its named Musikhjälpen and based on the format Serious Request from a Dutch radio station. Three popular persons are locked up for six days in a small temporary radio studio (the "Glass House"), placed in a main square in a different city each year. Their duty is to collect money for some urgent child question – this years it was against trafficking with the slogan – No child are for sale. There is broadcasting both in the Tv and radio 24 hours a day.

    Half a hour ago – they come out with the result for this year – It was more than 74,000,000 SEK

    We are 10,000,000 inhabitants in Sweden

    74,000,000 SEK is nearly 8.6 million US dollars

    You understand what you have to do – donate for the children that @revhtree want to help

    Sincerely Lasse

    Many of you have just wake up to a new morning, the last working week before Christmas - here its afternoon so I´m awake :).

    Last years result was $11,328 - this year it is $10.200 Is it possible to beat last year? I do not know but I put in $ 25 more as a beginning these last days before Christmas

    One thing I noticed that raised a lot of money last year were coral auctions from members. I don't think I saw a single one offered this year. I know several auctioned frag packs went for $500+ each.

    When will I receive my raffle ticket numbers. I donated on 12/5. I haven't seen any emails, except the confirmation for gofundme.

    If I remember right they send out the tickets once they close the gofundme account. Then they reconcile everything together and send out tickets. Gofundme does not allow direct ticket sales and the format makes it difficult to track while donations are still being accepted.
