The good deed is done. It may be a bit early for Christmas gifts, but – as we say in German – the money from the HoHoHoliday FundRAiser was “burning a hole in my pocket”. Meaning: I couldn’t wait to pass it on. I have transferred the grand sum of ￡3821.04 to LOROS via the tribute page to Mrs Armitage on much-loved. You will find our donation there, but I have made a screen shot of the note that accompanies our donation.
With the donation now transferred, we can put the fundraising to bed for the year. In case you are interested, together with the big birthday fundraiser in August, we have raised the enormous sum of €16,952.29 this year alone!
And that is not even counting Richard’s associated donation of another €6,300 which he matched to the proceeds of Guy’s Jacket™️. I am blown away by your generosity, especially so shortly after the birthday fundraiser. Thank you. – The fundraising has been running since 2016, benefitting a variety of causes, but the total of all our fundraising proceeds is now just under €30,000! Or €29,804.07, to be exact. An amazing effort by you all!
Before you go…
and while I have you here: With all the fundraiser excitement happening, I completely forgot to announce that the customary Guylty RAdvent CalendRA is back for another year. As is custom, it has been running since 1st December, so 10 windows have been opened already. You can find the RAdvent CalendRA HERE. Because Christmas never gets old. And that is also the motto of this year’s advent calendar. After much silliness with puns and Christmas jumpers in previous years, I have indulged in some vintage designs this year. For your convenience, this is what has been revealed so far. (Click images to enlarge)
It’s a bit of a chaRActer potpourri. In some cases it is worth-while reading the small print. Just sayin’. Which one is your favourite so far? More windows will open every day. Check it out yourself. Also, Kate is also posting an advent calendar every day over on Twitter. She is showing her fabulous RA window ornaments that were a hit in our fundraiser sale. Check her Twitter for more every day.
