What the heck, I'd like to pitch in too.

An update as to my thinking here.  The outpouring is truly impressive.  Somebody told me privately that we're up to around forty people right now, far more than I expected.  But before you get your calculators out and start writing five-dollar checks, I can tell you (because I work in public television, remember?) that the larger your pool of pledgers, the more likely it is that you don't get a 100% fulfillment rate.  What I think I'm going to do is ask everybody for a little more (seven or eight dollars is where I am right now) in case some people don't follow through.  Any overages after the dust settles can be given to charity.

Still, we're not there yet, so don't send money!  The auction closes tomorrow night.  Keep those fingers crossed!

So if we have forty people who are all willing to throw in, there's a lot of real estate between where the bid is now and our total pledged outlay. I'm staying cautiously optimistic.

Late to the thread, but I'm in for a share as well. Fantastic idea to have an overage go to charity!

Having played a small part in instigating this group effort, I'd like to pitch in too, for the full $20.

It's important to me that this goes to good hands in the community, so I'll pitch in for $20 as well.  Good luck, and put in a good number!  ;D
