Donations to Red Cross Chile & Un Techo Para Chile

As you all know, our picture sales campaign to raise money for the earthquake relief efforts in Chile ended on Wednesday March 17th at midnight. We have tallied up the results and in total, including our first donation to the Teletón, we raised $655!!!! Thus far surpassing our goal of $500. That means that since the first donation of US $303, we raised another $352. Pretty amazing! Thanks to everyone who bought pictures. All orders have been shipped and we hope you are happy with the pictures.

Christian filmed me making the donations online (thanks to Kyle for the great idea). We split the US $352 (approx. $175,745 CLP) between the Red Cross Chile and Un Techo Para Chile--thus each one received CLP $87,873 (or about $176 USD). Here are the videos (sorry the quality isn't all that great):

Great job!

I filmed our first donation and I thought it was a really good idea so people really could see what we did with their money, but then I completely forgot the second time around. It is kind of a hassle, but hey, it works :)
