Thank you. Wish I could’ve added my pledge this time around, but got hit at the wrong time. Am looking forward to the next round.
Thanks for sharing this detailed data. It is helpful and healthy to understand the actual cost of such an undertaking. And a very special thanks to all who generously gave so much of their time and skills that the line item for salaries was only $7,000!
