Achievement Unlocked, Again
January 1, 2013 3:31 PM   Subscribe

Speaking of love, as a quick followup to this post about this year's MefightClub donation drive for the Child's Play charity, we've wrapped it up with a total of $5500 dollars donated, beating last year's total and easily surpassing our goal.

Big hugs to everyone who donated to the group pool, to everyone who donated independently, thanks to frognuts for kicking off this year's drive, and special thanks to our noodley inspiration, herrdoktor, for rallying the troops. I'm enormously proud of the community we have at MFC. The spirit of rotato lives on.

Someone's been dealing with public school NCLB performance metrics for too long!

In all seriousness, great job everyone!

Also: I just looked, and we're a 'corporate sponsor' again this year, and have a logo (which I whipped up in about 15 minutes and am not immensely proud of but oh well) on the front page (down at the bottom) of the Child's Play front page, which is groovy. Huzzah!

That is awesome. Go MFC! I love that a bunch of old farts who like to play games are now considered corporate sponsors, too. I really need to figure out a good proxy so I can start hanging out there while I'm at work again... I miss you folks!
