I want to give one final update on the Domain Boardroom / Escrow.com fundraiser auction that was run on my blog to benefit the victims of the devastating tornados, via the American Red Cross in Oklahoma City.
After all of the domain name and service sales were transacted (at no cost) via Escrow.com, a total of $5,655 was mailed to the OKC chapter of the American Red Cross. As I hoped and expected, every transaction was completed in a timely manner. Escrow.com even covered the Paypal and credit card fees that are normally paid by the parties to the transactions, ensuring that the Red Cross would receive all proceeds.
Once again, I want to thank all of the donors and buyers for coming together to help the American Red Cross, which will help the victims of the tornados. I also want to thank Donna Mahony and the team at Escrow.com, who organized and helped ensure a smooth fundraiser. Finally, thank you to those of you who helped promote the auction with Facebook posts, tweets, phone calls, and other promotional help.
If you weren’t a high bidder and want to support the disaster relief efforts of the American Red Cross, you can text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which helps people affected by disasters such as the devastating tornados that hit the Oklahoma City area.
