      Thanks so much for highlighting Valour-IT! And the news on the totals is actually even better: the site linked above includes just the preliminary amount. When checks and other donations are counted, we expect we will have raised about $220,000.

    • FbL,
      Thanks for the update. I’ve updated Top 5 with a link to your results and the new number. That’s an amazing project and one I’m very interested in writing more about. Please contact me through the feedback form on the site so I can talk more about this privately with you and perhaps other organizers — and recipients — of the project.
