Almost there!!

Update: As of 08:30 CDT on 18-March-2011 we have raised a total of $9,661.28 thanks to 213 donors!


OK, I've been very overwhelmed by the 79 private messages I've gotten now from people who forgot to put their forum name on their payment or sent in an additional payment and wanted it applied to their forum account to up the donor banner. I think I've caught up and fixed everyone's problems but if not, drop me a PM.

If you PM me, please give me as much information you can so I can more easily find your info to tie it together. Some of you are really make me work to fix some of your stuff by just saying "I donated but forgot my forum name". I could really use more info than that. Remember I'm just a volunteer!

I'll do my best to make it easier next time though. I'm learning. :)

For those of you who have followed the instructions. Thank you!

You guys have been very generous here! There are a surprising number of $100 and $200 donations sent in for this drive.

Just make the instructions appear ABOVE the paypal button so an impatient bugger like me sees them before clicking on the shiny button.

Thanks again for setting this up and ZS rocks.

I just finished doing a banner for the ZS fund raiser but I see that someone else has already made an awesome one. Since I've already done it though, I'll just post it anyway in case there's a need for a different size one or something.

We may be dragging this drive out a little bit longer. I'll let you know the plan as soon as it is decided. We are way past $10K now. I'll get an update later when I get some free time.

What does the japanese text on the right mean?

Well, my Japanese isn't great so it could possibly have been phrased better, but it says 'Zombie Squad Japanese Disaster Relief'.

Ima be 'That Guy' and ask how long it takes to get the donor banner and I'd like to make a suggestion. Since this is already almost at 10K, why not continue it? There is never too much help.

If there is a second pot going to support the admin costs, please advertise it. I mean, I could just go and buy a bunch of swag from the store, but that's terribly inefficient, and my wife would kill me when the package arrived...

In the interests of full disclosure, the Japanese text I posted before was using an incorrect particle, which I had to fix (told you I wasn't so great at Japanese!).

Here's how it should look:

Wow, this is incredible. I've never seen people raise money this fast before.

The party is still going!

We are leaving the drive open for a bit longer. We should at least keep it going long enough to get rid of the 250 dog tags we will be ordering soon. :)

Update: As of 15:00 CDT on 18-March-2011 we have raised a total of $11,018.28 thanks to 216 donors!

Some fun stats:

This drive has been running for a total of 66 hours and 30 minutes

Amount of time it took us to raise $10,000.00 : 60 hours 12 minutes

# Donors who gave over $100 = 36
# Donors who gave over $200 = 7

# Donors who gave $5 or less = 10
# Donors who gave $1 or less = 2


Zombie Squad: fuck yeah.
