    I'm in for 18 months. Would have done 2 years, but there was no Purchase button on that choice????

    That's because you had purchased that one last time. You can always add on a 1 year to get to the same thing. :) (you can purchase multiple options to add up to a total).

    Just donated. It’s been so long since I joined, do you have everyone’s real name on file?

    I don’t remember

    edit: I guess it doesn’t matter. I see the banner now

    I couldn't find the $1,000 - Ban a user of your choosing option, so enjoy your Jackson. :D

    (kidding, I couldn't think of anyone I'd boot for a fiver)

    Now THAT would be an interesting fundraiser for sure! We could even do like the dunk tank where you try to dunk your boss to raise money for [insert cause here].

    "Ban your favorite MC member for a week!"

    Although I'm afraid I know who would "win" that one... :redface:

    Well, we reached our fundraising goal in just over 36 hours.

    THANK YOU
    for all of you that gave so that the board is able to move forward.

    I'm going to shut down collection for now. If you missed the window and would still like to give, just PM me and I can make arrangements with you.

    Why not keep the fundraiser open indefinitely?

    @SCCutler would know for sure, but I believe non profits can only take in so much money above routine expenditures before they run afoul of the non profit laws. I used to be on the board of a non profit community theater, and we had to be mindful of having too much money in the bank.
