I’m sure you’re all excited to see how our first annual virtual Amanda Tapping event (VAT1) went. It comes as no surprise how generous Amanda fans are. We see it time and again when it comes to any fundraiser for Sanctuary for Kids.
This weekend we put together a virtual weekend for those not going to AT6. It’s the first (but not last) of it’s kind. It was very last minute, details coming to me as I was driving home from the store a week and a half ago. While we may have started off small, we finished with a bang. Going into this we had no idea if we’d sink or swim and I can’t thank everyone enough fo making sure we didn’t drown.
I’ve never known a group of people that are as generous or kind as Amanda fans. There’s no words to express how thankful I am for every donation that comes through one of these projects we do. I hope you know that each and every email I’ve received or will receive means a great deal and I just want everyone to know how grateful I am to be part of such an amazing group of people.
Before we get to the big reveal some facts you may like to know:
• people who went to AT6 and didn’t participate AT ALL in our weekend, still made pledges
• if pledges didn’t come up people are donating anyway.
• people are donating MORE than what they pledged to Sanctuary for Kids
And drumroll please…
$215 from the scavenger hunt
$666 from the pledges
Bringing the grand total (right now) to $1,000
First place winner in the scavenger hunt was Chantelle
Second place winner in the scavenger hunt was Vicki
As more and more donation receipt come in, I’ll update the total if it’s needed.
The one thing I think I’ve been asked more than anything is if I’m going to post the scavenger hunt clues for everyone to see. Now I’m not sure if this is wise. Everyone will see how evil I was this weekend and no one may want to play next year. I suppose I’ll just take the chance that you guys will forget once VAT2 comes around. One can hope anyway. Just know that each and every one of these things could have been found in the gallery here. I need to assemble the pictures that made me think of each clue and then I’ll post them for everyone to see.
For now you can find the scavenger hunt clues under the cut.
