Fundraising update and thank yous

I just wanted to let everyone know how I'm going so far with my fundraising for Plan Australia to help the flood victims of Pakistan. In only four days, I exceeded my $500 target! Now on day five, the total is sitting on $580. A HUGE thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.

There are now an estimated 14 million people affected, which makes this crisis worse than that of the tsunami of late 2004. Therefore, I'll be keeping the appeal running right up until I begin my week of no internet in order to raise as much money as possible. I will begin my week of no internet on Saturday 21 August (the day of the federal election). Hopefully I'll use my time constructively and make some progress with sewing or fixing up my found table!

What do you think? Should I now aim to raise $1000?

  1. I couldn't have done it without lovely people like yourself. :)

    I'm just going to promote the hell out of this thing over the next week or so and see what happens.
