Erowid Announcement #76
Feb 13, 2007
Friends of Erowid,

We had three weeks to raise $3,000 in larger donations, and we did it! By February 12, enough donations of $300 and higher were made to Erowid to meet the requirements of the short "3K in Three Weeks" matching donation offer. These contributions were doubled by an anonymous donor, effectively raising a total of $6,000. A heart-felt thanks to all our supporters!

We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at submissions@erowid.org.

peace,
fire & earth
