Thank You

Well, looks like I've done it - I've blogged every half hour for twenty-four hours straight to raise money for Heifer International. As of this post, I've raised $338, far more than I actually expected to, especially since this was my first time to participate in one of these blogging marathons.

I'd like to take a minute to acknowledge and thank all my sponsors: Wendy, Erika, Amancay, Noelle, Hugin and Munin, Kristal, Gary LaPointe, girl and boy, The Daily Meme, Irfan, Michael Brunk, Traci, Christine Murphy, Hip Momma, Sue Bailey, Kimberly McKinnis, Daria, Marcus, Pam B., Christine and Mike, Violet Fox, Tony, Steve, Regina Heater, and two anonymous donors.

All of these people are getting their name entered into a drawing for a set of my Burn It CDs, six discs in total. We'll be accepting sponsors until Monday, so I won't do the drawing until then. If you can spare a few dollars, please go sponsor me. Keep in mind that I put almost sixty songs up for you to download for free within these posts, so if you liked a few of them, sponsoring me would be a lovely thing to do.

Thanks also goes out to all the people that came by here and commented or sent me e-mails. It helped make the hours go by quicker and I really appreciate that as well. Thanks also to Wendy and Brent for organizing this whole thing and to C.J. for IMing with me and to Michael for all the e-mails.

With that in mind, the last two downloads should be self-explanatory.

Alanis Morissette - Thank U (Like it? Then buy the CD.)
Dido - Thank You (Like it? Then buy the CD.)
