Happy to help out for a good cause. Lets reset the goal to U.S. $500.
I am sure Mini DG will exceed that.
All those Fters who save on Trick Flights, if your reading this please help out.

What was it you ate at MacTarnahan's last year at the Pre-Sea Doo Event? Pot Roast AND a cheeseburger??? LOL

As a former participant of the 40 Hour Famine as well (oh do I remember the feast afterward...I'd kill to find the recipe for the "Zucchini Boats" we had...yum yum yum), I'd be honored to donate as well. Downundergirl, I will be messaging you and requesting information.

Made my donation.

Onward and...upward or downward? (After all, the floor is down, the chair is up )

Whatever - best wishes, Mini DG.

Send a PM to Downunder girl.

Any other FTers want to forgo spending $$ on lunch and donating the money for this great cause.
EXPERIENCE YOUR OWN FAMINE FOR A FEW HOURS by donating your lunch money for this cause.
ONLY u.s.$100 more in donations needed to reach the $500 u.s. mark
Easy to donate online, it only takes a couple of minutes.

Thank you so much for trying to drum up some extra support for the cause .

Currently Mini DG has raised $415 AUD in donations. Its in AUD . Lets hope she hits $500 before this weekend, where she will be going without furniture for 40 hrs.

Awesome! Congratulations, and I hope she makes her new revised goal!

The goal may be in AUD, but after currency conversion fees, the AUD is just about on par with the USD! Good for you, but for us!

Is everyone using the link I am supplying in PM?

Just a bit concerning that we have not seen any further donations added to Mini DG's page since the 15th August, however quite a few people have asked for the link since then .

Perhaps people have accidently swiped out Mini DG's code when they go to the DONATION page and it just goes into the general pool?

Any problems, please pm me.

Thanks again for your great support .
