In Rounds 3 and 4 of the YA Crush Tournament, Team Kilt raised $450 and $770(+20 pounds) for the Tartan Army Childrens Charity, a group that helps needy children in Scotland and in other countries where the national football (soccer) side (team) supporters (fans) travel to support their boys.
The thing is, I'd start off each round with one pledge--in Round 3 it was me, and in Round 4 it was Fictitious Delicious--and then other people would jump in to join. I'm not very organized, so I had trouble keeping track, so it took about ten minutes of recalculating each time I wanted to give an update. I actually used the back of an envelope. This envelope, in fact:
My cat chewed it. The other numbers in a row were generated by the random number generator when I drew a winner for SHINE ARCs and Keeley Brothers T-shirts. I always tell it to give me more than one, because INVARIABLY the first number turns out to be me. D'oh!
But now, thanks to Google Docs, I can keep track of tomorrow's Round 5 (THE FINAL ROUND--AAAAAH!!!!) pledges easily. After all, there are only so many empty envelopes in this house.
Don't forget to vote for Zachary tomorrow, Wednesday August 10, 9am eastern through Thursday, 9am eastern. Thank you again for all your support--Team Kilt RAWKS!
