We did it.
With the sales of specially-priced “
The Axis of All Things” CDs, you, my fans and
friends, have helped me raise
$1542.52 for Australia’s
Foundation!! I’m proud of you all for getting behind this
cause and I believe that one day this amount will contribute to
lasting change for blood cancer sufferers. With a few sales
that trickled in after May 20 the total is actually about
$1600, so please accept my thanks and gratitude.
Thanks to those who tweeted, facebooked, emailed their
contacts about it, and thanks to those who bought multiple copies
to share with others.
As you will recall, I started this fundraiser after learning
that an old classmate had lost her battle to the disease many years
ago, and so it was my great pleasure to honour her by donating this
money to the foundation in her memory. I think it is the mark
of a life lived beautifully when someone is remembered vividly and
fondly when they're gone, despite decades passed and miles walked
in the lives of those who knew them. It is my hope that you
all make this kind of impact in the lives around you.
If I can be so bold as to pass on the sentiments of Melissa’s
family, they have been touched by our fundraiser and the good it
will hopefully do, and so I want to pass the thanks they’ve
expressed to me on to you.
I’ll be no doubt calling on you all when I get my next idea!
