A new total:

I received an email yesterday asking for the new total.
I apologize to everyone for not keeping up with the tally marks.
The donation station was flying off the hook for three solid weeks.
At the same time as we reached $100,000, Hollis arrived safe in our arms. Shortly after that there have been many benefits all over the place, and the job here at Friends of Hollis moved from behind the screen to hand in hand. The pay pal went from 7 donations every ten minutes to a few a day, steadily rolling in. I know that the first three weeks were so amazing because your eyes just lit up every time you checked in and found that the money coming in had doubled, then tripled. It seems like a let down if it isn't in the thousands. But that is incorrect thinking.
Every donation counts and each cent is a vote for Hollis to reach health.

Today I am getting ready for The Cougar Run where The Derailleurs are performing.
check it out here:

Then I will track down a new total for you all.
It's on the way.

  1. Hi,

    This might sound cheesy, but it just occurred to me that maybe friends of Hollis could/should send/make Mothers Day cards or something for Hollis' Mom...I'm sure it's going to be an especially hard day for her and it's next weekend.

    Just a thought.
