Good evening fair gentles.
It's been a while since i updated you guys on what's been going on with the donations.
We are at a little over $7500 in donations, they are definitely slowing down but I plan on taking donations and of course sending out a sticker to thank you for each $5 donation made for as long as people are willing to donate. Hopefully we will reach our $10,000 goal by the end of may.
All donations made up to the 26th of April have been processed and the stickers were sent out as a token of our appreciation for donating through us.
There were several people that didn't list their addresses so i will be emailing you shortly.
We were not able to get chrome to work unfortunately so everybody who asked for a chrome sticker was instead sent a silver sticker and an additional sticker of a different color as a thank you gift for being so patient with us.
There have been several paypal disputes filed and people asking for refunds of their donations, all of these cases were for the reason that they did not receive their sticker(s) soon enough. I would like to clarify one thing, I really do appreciate everybody's donation but i would prefer if you donated because you care about the people in Japan and want to help them, not to get a sticker. We have been doing our absolute best to make the stickers and send them out as quickly and as accurately as possible, however we are human after all so we may have made a mistake on the color or quantity of the stickers we sent to you - if so, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will take care of it as quickly as i can. Also i would like to apologize to those who feel that we did not send your sticker out quickly enough, and appreciate your patience. So i will say this now, please expect up to a month to receive your thank you sticker. However since the initial "rush" is over and we are now receiving five to ten donations a day as opposed to fifty or sixty a day, you are likely to receive them in less than a month's time.
Any reason for donating to the less fortunate is a good reason, but when i set this up - i had assumed that people would be more concerned about where the money is going rather than how quickly they would receive their sticker, judging from the emails i have received, it seems to be the opposite. Perhaps i was naive, but i will continue this project in the same fashion as we have been conducting it: to the best of our ability. I appreciate your donations and your patience.
