Time is running out, so get your posts up. CBR11 will end at will end at noon today at 12:00 p.m. EST. That is in one hour! Any posts that haven’t been published on the group blog when CBR11 ends will be counted towards CBR12 when you publish on January 1. If you have any questions or problems, please use the contact form or email me at email@example.com.
I’m thrilled to announce that thanks to your generosity, we were able to donate $1,350 to the American Cancer Society today. That’s the largest single donation we’ve ever made, and it brings our annual total to $1,675. Over all these years, we’ve donated $6,600 so far to the ACS in AlabamaPink’s name. Thank you everyone, from the bottom of my heart.
