Thank you everybody. We reached our goal. All your love and help has helped us keep our doors open and you have helped make holiday wishes come true for everybody. Over the next couple of weeks I will be at Backspace trying to coordinate the mass amount of traffic of people and packages. If you would like to talk to me about your package you can find at Backspace on Sundays between 6 and 8 before the poetry slam. From the staff at Backspace and everybody involved in this project, thank you all so very much.
This campaign has ended and will receive all funds raised. Funding duration: December 17, 2012 - December 31, 2012 (11:59pm PT).
