I just wanted to take a minute (since the donations announcement post is locked) to thank Eve for her contributions to charity.
As someone who has lost very close immediate family members to illnesses that need money for developing cures, and as someone who lives in NYC and sees people living on the streets and struggling just to be alive all the time, it really means a lot to me that HEE and its sister sites give so generously. No one is ever required to donate to these causes; it's a beautiful, wonderful thing to do and I'm proud to be part of a community run by someone who elects to use their resources to help others.
So thank you Eve, and also thank you to everyone who spends RL money on the site knowing that some of it goes to give hope and help to those in need. I'm especially missing my stepmother tonight (she really was my second mother, and for a period of time, my only mother) -- she lost her battle to Lymphoma a few years ago; two days ago was also the six year anniversary of a good friend's death from Leukemia at the WAY too young age of 22. But this is a Winner's Circle post, and while these people may no longer be with me, the donations make me so glad to be part of HEE (among many, many other reasons).
Love to Eve and love to all.
