So I'm just going to quickly embarrass them.
To give you an idea who smart I am, I got the name of the hashtag wrong in the very first thread.
But I underestimated everybody and that makes me incredibly happy.
But none of it, not any of it, would have worked without this group of impossible volunteers.
All of this was MILES beyond me, soon even those two weren't enough.
Pretty soon, including me, it took nine people keeping track of donations and bids. All volunteers, none of whom knew each other.
I just find it amazing.
He was, however, a brony and was delighted to find out I'd written MLP.
For a long time, no one knew what gender, sexuality, ethnicity, faith, nation, age, or anything the rest were. We didn't even know each other's names.
No one asked for credit, a LOT was done anonymously.
And we never had a single cross word in almost two weeks of intense round-the-clock pressure. Not one.
It's about them, we called them the Avengers.
They actually scheduled people 24/7, all volunteers. They had three separate work chat areas I didn't even know about.
I love them all and that isn't saying nearly enough.
So I'm gonna thank them here. :)
He's incredible AND he's in Washington. PNW represent!
But for god's sake get a different hat!
Thank you, @JGiampietro!
I am so grateful to them, and with all of you, we raised over $311,000 for some fantastic Black support organizations.
Team, I SALUTE YOU.
Feel free to join me, all!
