Valour-IT: It Isn't Over

From Laughing Wolf at Blackfive comes this:

In the immortal words of our founder:

What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Er, sorry, wrong founder.

The fact is, the fundraiser is now over. Well, no, only a part of it is. The friendly competition between the services is indeed over, with more than $78,000.00 showing right now. That total is not final, however, as I believe a few more checks have come in/are coming in and the final total is still some days away.

No, we didn't make our goal, but we knew we wouldn't from the start. There were a number of factors in play that meant we would not make the $250,000.00 goal. While I wish we could have raised more, I am glad we raised what we did, and I point out cheerfully that Team Army is -- so far -- leading the way. While it would have been nice to make the goal, I think we are all glad for what we did raise and I want to thank each of you that contributed.

Go read the rest, here. And THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

As mentioned elsewhere, AB... "quantity has a quality all its own." The Ground-Pounder blogs outnumbered us Zoomies by well over 3:1.

But Hey! Like ya said... "It's all good!" (You DID say that, right?) ;-)

lol....I am sure I must have, Buck, since I am ALWAYS saying that.;)

And yes, every dime from every team all goes to the same places: Valour-IT, so it really IS all good.
