Today is the last day of the Aicardi Syndrome Fundraiser, raising money to fund research into a very nasty disease, and to support the families affected by that disease. (And also to make me try to duplicate some of the sillier and more sexist book cover poses.)

I am blown away by the support and generosity we’ve seen so far. I figured $10K was a dream goal, and as of this morning, we’ve raised more than $12,000.

This is my final call for donations. I said that if we raised $15K, I’d do a calendar. I’ve started playing with ideas, and put together a mock-up of what the calendar pages might look like. This one is a little too busy for my taste, but it’s close, and I think the whole thing could be a lot of fun.

So if you haven’t already donated, if you have a little extra money at the end of the year and are looking for a good, tax deductible cause, please click here for the details.

And thank you all.
