Apparently I have to wait 3-4 business days for the money I deposited in my bank account yesterday to clear its transfer into my Paypal account. So I guess I will be transferring the money to Emily's Paypal account a couple of days after Christmas. I will take a screen shot when I do so you can all see that your money did make it to Emily.
However, I said I would announce the grand total today and announce it I will. Thanks to my late night friend with an awesome name, we had a last minute $200 donation to round out our number.
With all that, our grand total that we will be sending to Emily is ....
I hope she will be able to live a few months off the money and give herself some time to grieve before she HAS to deal with the big decisions before her.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all feel the sweet after taste of giving in your hearts all through the season! You deserve it!
