After the Rain fundraiser – final roundup

February 25th, 2011 at 10:43 am (After the Rain, eBooks)

Wow, what a wonderful response. I’m so proud to announce that the final tally of fundraising for Queensland Flood Relief Appeal from the After the Rain ebook was a whopping $2414.00!! Stunned and amazed, and so very grateful to:

* the contributors, who so generously gave the use of their work to raise funds. You’re all awesome.

* Carol and Mit, who proofread on super short notice – thank you!

* everyone who donated – we thank you, and really hope you enjoy the book!

* everyone who tweeted, Facebooked, linked to and talked about the fundraiser – couldn’t have done it without you.

* To Cheryl Morgan at Wizard’s Tower Books and Gavin Grant at Weightless Books, for listing the book online and providing another outlet – a generous and gratefully received offer from both!

And anyone I’ve missed!

In all, I personally received 120 donations, plus those via Cheryl and Gavin, from all over the world, and people were very generous. Thank you again!

Below are the final two receipts for the donations passed on to the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal, for transparency’s sake :)

Message from Premier of Queensland

Please accept my personal thanks for your generous donation to the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal.

The kindness and generosity of donors such as yourself is greatly appreciated. All of the money raised by the appeal will be used to assist the people who have been affected by the extensive flooding experienced across Queensland communities during December 2010 and early January 2011.

I can assure you that my Government is committed to helping the affected communities on the road to recovery and will continue to work in partnership with the Australian Government, local councils, Australian Red Cross and other non-government organisations and volunteers to support people through this difficult time.

ANNA BLIGH MP

PREMIER OF QUEENSLAND
