In Honor of A Mother Memorial Fund Tally

Close-up of Lily flowersContributions for the memorial fund in honor of Mrs. Servetus closed yesterday at midnight.  I saved every notification from PayPal in a separate folder and tabulated each donation as they arrived.  After double and triple checking, the final tally was $762.50 (U.S. dollars).  (Told ya this was enough to buy an iDevice).

As you know, RA has four charities on his JustGiving page.  The winning charity was chosen by the scientific process of closing my eyes and pointing a finger at the screen.  The finger landed on – The Salvation Army.   So the entire amount went to this charity.  For transparency sake,  here is the receipt:

    • Hey Servetus – I’m commenting here because the ‘thank you’ post on your blog is closed. But your OT post reminds me of a nice quote on the dedication page of my college textbook “Financial Assets, Markets, and Institutions”!!!!! Yes, you read that correctly!!! 😀

      And the quote on the dedication page of my financial markets textbook is simply, “Goodness is the only investment that never fails” – Henry David Thoreau.

      Wise and unexpected words for the front of a financial markets textbook, I’d say!! But the same also holds true for Love. xoxo

  1. Well Done, Judiang!
    This memorial fundraising effort is a great tribute to mothers and daughters, friendship, and the goodness inherent in Richard Armitage fans.
    Love & Hugs! Grati ;->

  2. What a wonderful result. I am so glad to be part of this.
    Thank you Judi for the organization and to all who’d contributed!!!

    • What a great result. I am honored to have been a part of this and this group. Donating to one charity instead of splitting it up is the best way, IMO.

  3. What a fabulous result! 🙂

    Thank you to Judi, Angie and all the bloggers involved for giving us the opportunity to honour an extraordinary woman and her extraordinary daughter.

  9. This made me teary as well, Serv. Thank you to all of you who set this up and alerted the community. What a wonderful thing it is to be a part of such a caring group.
