Incredibly, it's match met! Shares still needed, though.

The $500 match that was on offer has been met! Given the holidays, I really wasn't expecting that to happen until well into the new year. Work is mostly in abeyance until then, too, but Buffy's supposed to finish off some upstairs wiring tomorrow, because Ice is coming to begin the taping and bedding up there (what? "bedding" refers to plaster prep; get your mind out of the gutter). Today was just too freaking cold, and we were under a high wind warning for 35- to 45-mph sustained winds with gusts of 60-70 mph, none of which materialized, thankfully; they were here yesterday, instead. But they're predicting a high of 40 for tomorrow, so the upstairs will be plenty warm for them to work in it.

For now, we just need shares:
  • Shares of our YouCaring page via the widgets provided, especially the widget code, which has once again been moved back to the purple box at the lower right-hand side of the page, that produces the image shown just above.
  • Shares of Wings's site; sales also fund the construction (indeed, they are the baseline for it). Testimonials help.
  • I've added Lowes gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. For folks who'd rather give gift cards than cash, this is far and away the best way to support construction. We're going to have to sink a small fortune into them for fixtures, appliances, flooring, etc., and at the moment, we can actually use the gift cards better than cash.
Thank you to everyone who has gotten us this far this year, including the folks who unexpectedly got us to our match point today. Before I leave you for the next task, I want to direct your attention here (or, for folks at the GOS, here). This is by Wings, and I am so proud of him, and for his willingness to step up for our friend who so desperately needs community support right now. Please T/R/share/donate to her fund if you can.

Thanks, everybody.
