Update on the birthday pledge drive thing. [UPDATED, Over]

[Midnight-ish UPDATE] Contributions, when added to existing funds, gets me to just under $400.  I believe that we will call it here: maybe I can find a refurbished-upgraded iPod. Thanks again to everybody who contributed!

[6 PM-ish UPDATE] Contributions are now enough that I can get the replacement, and maybe I’ll be able to even upgrade, which I was not expecting to be able to do, honestly.  Thanks!

It’s doing well, actually.


Mind you, that includes personal funds, birthday gift cards, and existing Amazon store credit. But I still have awesome readers. We’re pretty close to getting to $300, which would replace the existing iPod: if we hit $400 I can get the one with double the storage space. We’ll see how it goes, obviously.
