Yep, that's the final tally from ITR's December challenge to raise money for our charity (and in a substantial way, our raison d'etre), the Stroke Clinic at the RCH.
I had so many of my lovely loyal customers come back one, two even three times in December, in addition to a whole host of new people. I can now say that I'd secretly hoped to raise $1000 – $1500, so it goes without saying that you are all terrific.
I'm going to freshen up a bit, spend a bit of time working on my winter range (shaping up pretty nicely if I do say so), and just refining things so that it all works a bit more smoothly. It'll all keep ticking over, just at a slower rate for a while. In the meantime, if there's not enough on the site for you to buy, but you're still keen to help us raise money, you can contribute directly through the icon on the right hand side here(*), it all goes into the same account. And please, $10 donations are fabulous, don't not donate simply because you feel anything less than $25 or so isn't enough, every cent counts as our December challenge showed(**).
And finally, Happy New Year to you all!
Four fabulous little people celebrating New Year's Eve in the Nation's capital.
(*) In case you're interested, the $165 raised with the previous chipin has been added to the December fundraiser and contributed to the $2357 total.
(**) More than a third of our December orders were <$30, meaning a $15 contribution – shows how it all adds up, doesn't it?
