This auction has been closed!!!
I apologize for taking so long to get this update out to all of you!!!
In the past few weeks I have made the final preparations for my wedding, gotten married, and returned from an amazing honeymoon in Mexico...and this update is far overdue.
Thanks to everyone who participating in this auction, either by thumbing it, bidding in it, donating items to it, or letting other BGGers know about it, we were able to raise $4,159 for A. I was able to scrimp together another couple bucks, and a few months ago I sent out a check to A for $4,500 to help her out in her time of need.
She was overwhelmed by your generosity and had this to say:A wrote:Jimmy, thank you SO MUCH for putting this together, and make sure that everyone involved knows how truly, truly touched I am by the outright flooding of love and support the board game community has shown myself and my family.
I will make sure to do everything I can to pay this gigantic act of generosity forward - and I promise I won't groan whenever you bring out a game from now on (though I will always hate The Resistance :-).
Thank you so much.
She is doing much better, and is able to walk without a walker or crutches again. She is also back to work full-time. She still has some expenses to pay off as a result of the attack, but we were able to take a big chunk out of that for her.
Again, thank you to EVERYONE who participated in this auction!!
