- AIDS Research Alliance: $24,185.06
- Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation: $38,620.03

Thanks, John. Really. A major problem I have with charity fundraising is a lack of any transparency about where the money actually goes; I just wish little things like what you did were more common and conspicuous.

Bravo to you and the Directorate for your honesty.

Yay!!  It's awesome to see - it's also really good the money was split among many different charities.  I hope they all use the cash infusion wisely, and I hope to see more giving to charity come out of these events.

Bravo for this, and for being willing to give up "a slice of your pie" to help others.

Whistle while you work.  Patience is key.

As much as I'd love to support pro wrestling tongue, I believe I chose the hunger one, becuase i was really hungry when I bought the bundle.

Sweet. I live really close to where save the children is located (maybe around 10 minutes) so it's nice to here they did well. Also, all charities are good, lots of money raised.
