Contest: Warm and fuzzy feelings
UPDATED WITH MORE PRIZE-AGE. SCROLL DOWN.
Good morning, friends. What's up? Ohhhh right, of course. $131,137 raised; 953 donors (welcome, first-timers!); and 40,422 students reached.
Hell of a weekend at sea.
In case you missed the super-flurry of activity yesterday, it looks like we've qualified for about 43% of the HP funds. And you know what that means: 1) we'll likely make both the 150K goal AND the 210K goal, so 2) a tomato is going to Atlantic City, and 3) the awesomeness of the Tomato Nation readership is once again a beacon to all.
I'd like to make the warm-and-fuzzies a bit more literal today, at the suggestion of reader Heather P. Y'all knitters will love this: Heather is donating a skein of Wollmeise superwash sock yarn in Campari orange. You can see it to your right here, and it's a nice tomatoey red. All donors contributing to one (or all) of the four projects below could win that yarn for themselves or their friends; this mini-prize will stay open until all pertinent projects have gotten funded. Just forward me your receipts, preferably with the words "knitting" and/or "Wollmeise" in the subject line, anytime before 31 October to bunting at tomatonation dot com.
Heather added another prize to this drawing on Tuesday evening, too! Another winner could snag a grab bag (well, actually a Priority Mail box) of yarn: "good stuff," she says, with probably at least one hand-painted skein in the haul. She can accommodate wool allergies and vegan concerns up to a point, but the very occasional cat hair may stray into the stash, so the highly cat-averse should be aware.
