Ok, I finally called and got a real-live person today at the Susan G. Komen Foundation! I had the name slightly wrong -- I spoke with Kelly Puritz (1-800-462-9273, direct line 972-855-1630). She has passed my message along to someone named "Lindsey" to see if there's any way to specifically register in case anyone wants to check and see that the money will be going where we say it is going next week.

They're also going to discuss if they can try and e-mail me something to that effect, so if I do receive something of that nature, it will be posted immediately of course. They also said that once the donation is made, I'll receive a written proof of donation -- and anyone is welcome to check up about a donation made by me after the fact as well. So if anyone has any questions, just give me a yell! But I've finally talked with someone there live, instead of via their voicemail...

By the way, a couple of new submissions for your viewing pleasure!

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

hey darlin', ya need some more pics? I know, I'm late, but I'd love to help!!! You did such a good thing with this - not only do you get to have a great bday with Statia there, but you are gonna help a lot with the donation!

Don't worry too much about it if they can't track individual/group donations so that people can check. The people that have participated trust that you'll do what you need to do. The people that are casting a suspicious eye will probably continue to do so no matter what. If those who participated had any doubt that you would do the honorable thing, they'd have bypassed all this.

Annette, there was a huge 'net turmoil over a past charity drive (and the blogger collecting the money failing to register until after they were called out about it publicly in several places) -- so because of that really, I'd rather over-update than under just to make sure everyone who's given, or might give, is completely comfortable that it's going where we say it is. :-)

Must have missed that one. Of course, I miss a lot of these types of things due to the sheer inability to keep up with each corner of the blogosphere. Carry on. :)
