A Big Thank You From Your Captain

I'm about to pack it up for tonight, and my latest look at the World Relief Day fund shows that we have had a tremendously successful day. CQ readers raised over $6,000 in a single day, and we have raised $33,000 overall for tsunami victims. We are the top individual fund-raising effort at as well, something I didn't realize until I happened to click the wrong link earlier today.

Thanks to the multitude of bloggers who pitched in with their links to get the word out. Huge thanks to Hugh Hewitt and Kevin McCullough, both of whom plugged this daily on their blogs and on their radio shows -- this couldn't have been anywhere near the success it was without them. Michelle Malkin also has my deep gratitude, and tonight she's pointing out that some weather-related catastrophe victims closer to home could use our assistance, too.

Mostly, I want to thank all of the people who opened their hearts and wallets for the victims of the tsunami -- from the smallest donations to the largest gifts, they will all be appreciated and all go to good works. I will leave the donation page up so that people can continue to contribute to World Vision fund in the weeks ahead, and I'll put the link on the left sidebar.

Thank you again, and good night.

UPDATE: I can't believe I forgot to thank my Northern Alliance brethren for all their assistance. Ah, well, never write thank-you notes when you're just about to fall asleep.
