On behalf of the other Community Associates on the fundraising team, thanks Alec. We did intend this fundraiser to be populist, especially the Personal Appeals on the editor campaign. To that end, if you'd like to help out with the fundraiser further, please contact me directly and I can help figure out where to place you. Thanks again for the compliment, we really are proud of the fundraiser.
