The fundraising continues until the Red Lantern arrives in Nome! docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d

The reality is that this is a short-term effort that is in its last few days. My preference is that we stay focused with the donations still coming in (and as the days go by they are fewer and fewer) to keep the most impact possible on Alaskan schools. (2/2)

I stress I speak only for myself, but: I see other worthwhile charities being suggested for . Think of the donations being made right now as a garden hose: a direct stream has the most impact on small area, whereas a wide spray has small impact widely. (1/2)
