Let the March of the Penguins Begin!!!!
WE HAVE ANTARCTICA!!!!!!!
WE ARE 113% FUNDED!!!!!!
WE HAVE 303 BACKERS!!!!!
WE HAVE 61 HOURS TO GO AND THE DONATIONS KEEP COMING IN!!!!
I have included the email from our Antarctica backer - it turns out that the internet is not easily managed on the South Pole and so he will put the donation in the mail for us. (Thank goodness the post office is still in business!)
Hi Grady -
The Pole has extremely slow and intermittent internet, usually up when I'm sleeping. Best would be if you email me a snail-mail address, I'll toss my $1 in and ship it off. Might take a month to reach you, but the pledge will be there. Not sure how I'd pull off the webcam. I'm verylow-tech/old-fashioned. I use the internet and email via a dial-up.
We have made a new map to include our most recent backers (Antarctica looks so much happier now!) and my wife took a photo of me practicing my Penguin March! (somehow this is getting easier - I might actually be able to do a happy dance for YouTube!!)
