Preserving Thamiris' LJ and memory
|||||due SOUTH - "Dead Men Don't Throw Rice"||]|
Wow. thamiris had some amazing friends in you folks. I've just tallied up the donations to this point, and they already total $341.
A few of you stated your preference between having any surplus from your donations go to Odysseys and Ecstasy or to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation, and the rest didn't specify. Alison and I were going to assume that we could put the rest toward O & E, with the understanding that, if we could not sort out how to support the Web site, the remaining money would go to the RCHF instead. We would post an update when we put the money toward either cause so that you'd all know exactly how much was going where.
Anyone who'd like may continue to contribute to the fund, with the knowledge that the money could be applied as outlined above. Please, feel free to post any personal tributes to thamiris here in the community as well, like I mentioned earlier.
On a parallel note, par_avion made a proposition in a comment to my earlier entry. If we fail in our efforts to find a way to maintain O & E, we -- everyone here -- could also use this community as a repository for the stories, essays, and other materials Thamiris had posted on her Web site. We likely wouldn't be able to duplicate the style in which they were posted, but we could at least preserve all her words from there, possibly with screenshots of how the pages originally looked. Thinking about it, I suppose, if donors were in favor, we could make this community account Permanent for that purpose as well.
Share your $0.02 on any or all of this.
