THE RESULTS OF THE TOM THE DANCING BUG FOR MIGRANT CHILDREN FUNDRAISER

Looks like I've got my drawing work cut out for me.

 

Guys, together we raised $14,000 to help these frightened children.

 

PLUS, another $5,315 was donated directly to the Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights separately, by two participants who were inspired by this fundraiser, but could not donate through this fundraising page.  Counting these contributions raises the total to $19,315!

 

I'm so proud of the generosity of the Tom the Dancing Bug community, and so grateful that this money will go toward aiding children who are in horrible living conditions, alone, and desperately afraid.

 

THANK YOU to everyone who participated, no matter the amount.

 

I said I would create a custom Tom the Dancing Bug illustration for certain participants, and I'm now announcing those who will have these drawings foisted upon them.

 

1. I said that the top contributor would get an illustration.  But as the top contributions soared, my drawing hand was horrified when I revised that to say I would create an illustration for any contribution over $800.  The following people should email me at <tomdbug at gmail dot com> to arrange their illustration:

 

Alan Crawford

Anonymous*

Philip Apps

Alan Ward

Larry and Holly Beck

 

(* This person complied with all rules for eligibility, but contacted me separately requesting anonymity in the prize's announcement.)

If your contributions aggregated to over $800 and I somehow missed you, please also contact me to let me know.

 

2. I also said that two random contributors of $25 or more would win an illustration, and the following two winners of the random drawing should now contact me at <tomdbug at gmail dot com> to arrange the illustration:

 

Thomas M.

Andy Karn

 

INNER HIVE members should check next week's email for the results of the contest specific to the INNER HIVE.

Yours in utter awe and gratitude,
