You can find last year's numbers here:


The US, Canada, UK and Australia (New Zealand didn't make the top 10,
although the numbers will be in the Google spreadsheet linked from
that page if you want them) raised 58% of the total (including money
raised by chapters). Germany, France and Switzerland, who will also be
fundraising over the winter as far as I know, raised 23%. That leaves
19% from countries that will have the later fundraiser (minus a little
for NZ). Hopefully it will be more this year, since the fundraising
team will be able to focus on them.
