We have been so touched by your response to our post on Monday. Since I hit "Publish", we've gotten over 15 orders for nearly 50 decks and posters, Shipwire has tentatively decided to wave the monthly minimum for this month and is working with us to ship the remaining decks and posters to my place. So order before midnight tonight, when I'll be placing our last order with them. Here's what the last week looks like, quantitatively and qualitatively:

The left y-axis is number of decks+posters ordered, the right y-axis is total gross paid.

I know I say thank you in every post. I wonder sometimes if it gets repetitive to you reading it. But I meant it every time before and I mean it now--I am so grateful for the vital role each and every one of you played in getting these technical women's stories out into the world. I was grateful and exited by your enthusiasm when we first came to you in 2014; I have been grateful and amazed by ways you've used the decks in your lives and work since we shipped our first deck; and I've been grateful and honored by the way you have stuck with us on our journey to making this deck a reality.

So, thank you. Again and always.

PS: Like the title says, I will be posting our last order with Shipwire tonight at midnight PST tonight, so if you can order any decks or posters by then that will help save us paying for shipping twice. 

I plan to continue shipping these after tonight, it will just take a little longer since I'll be doing it from my apartment in San Jose, CA rather than a full-service shipping warehouse. But this project is too much fun and making too much of an impact in the world to let go, so it will go on, because of your support.
