Each year, we tell you exactly what has come in so far: $8654.33 for 2014. We also tell you our entire annual office budget: $17,120. With just $8,465.67 left to raise in just a couple of weeks, we’re asking… are there 85 readers willing to throw in $100 each in these final 14 days of 2014? We’re over halfway there.
