Oh, wow! The booths are getting filled up. Over 100 blog posts have been written and people are eager for the opening on Thursday. I am gratified by how much people have given, how much they have done and how eager people are to help. We even have Duncan Bradders organizing a big musical extravaganza. So in the past week through about 9:30 this morning, 99,429 Lindens were raised and transferred to Squinternet. Another 5,709 L were donated in her store. She was too tired to check PayPal, so I cannot report on that. However, the current total funds raised is 1607.66 and the event opens in two days. I have always said the SL community was a community in every sense of the word and I am so grateful you all are proving me right.
CORRECTION: I learned that I was converting lindens to dollars using the wrong calculator. I used the Marketplace Buy Lindens calculator, but being one of those people who have never taken money out of Second Life® (dang!) I did not use the real conversion calculator on the LindeX™. The more accurate information is below.
