A smashing success, dahlings!
I'm happy to report that we've just booked Statia's airline ticket -- we found it for $40 less through our travel agent over the phone (Traveler's Advantage) than anyone had found today surfing online. She flies in early on the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 27th -- and back home again early on the evening of Monday, December 2nd. The ticket was $309, and a total of $359 after airport taxes and fees.

I have updated the donations page to reflect the cost of the ticket subtracted from the rest of the donations which will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Since Tuesday night we have raised $1029.10 total -- and a whopping $670.10 for charity! Another special thanks goes out to Hosting Matters. Not only have they donated the bandwidth for this campaign, they also just gave the donation that finally pushed us above the $1K mark.

Who says bloggers can't make a difference? If you haven't had a chance to donate yet, I'll still be taking your hard-earned money through Friday night. Thanks again for all of the support everyone. I am literally amazed, and humbled, by all of your generousity!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Yes. Thank you all so much. I never thought in a million years that we'd raise this much money. Who'd have thought that friends helping friends would have been such a huge success???

Well done everyone, especially the brave ladies that put up with getting their t-shirts wet in aid of charity..:)

Congrats to all the donators and boobies, and hooray!

But most of all, thanks to Robyn, who's worked tirelessly on making pages, updates, and everything she's done for Statia. Friendship is truly a wonderful thing.

Woohoo! That's great and, definitely, thank you Robyn for your hard work.

Always happy to help. Many people completely disregard the kindness of strangers (although they rely on it almost every day in some fashion) and don't take the time to repay it here and there without thought of reward.

i think it's totally cool and amazingly inspiring. and that's just the part where Statia flys to Florida. raising money for breast cancer research is THE COOLEST THING, especially in the, erm, unique way you've done it. ;) you're uber-cool, Robyn.
