Fundraising update 6th July

The latest figures from those nice chaps at Tipitina's Foundation today allow me to take immense pleasure in telling you that Studio 60 fans have donated the incredible figure of $3,037 to date to help restore the musical heritage of New Orleans. Bearing in mind that this is on top of the $2500 that the advert in the Hollywood Reporter cost, and taking into account Paypal fees on the ad donations, that means you have given over $5,600 in just over 3 weeks.

I don't know about the others, but when digitalred93 first suggested the Thank You advert and we came up with the idea to donate money to Tipitina's, I had no idea that we would get this kind of response. We raised over $3000 in the first week of the campaign, and since the last episode of Studio 60 aired last week, donations of about $1800 have come in. All I can do is offer my deepest personal admiration and thanks to all of you for making this happen.

I have plans to enter the 24 hour blogathon on 28/29 July, on the theme of all things Sorkin related, to raise more money for Tipitina's. I hope that a load of you will come on over to 24hrs_of_sorkin when that happens and join in the fun. There's not a lot to see there right now, but over the next couple of weeks, I will be sorting out lots of things to do and see on the day, including competitions (with prizes!), polls and all kinds of discussions to join in with. I'll keep you updated on this as well as any new figures we get from Tipitina's.
