Folks, this is it. The last time we're going to bug you about our trip to Istanbul. We've decided to make December 31st the day we stop pimping the trip, and start focusing on going.

Thanks to your amazing generosity, and with the boost from EarthBaby, we've raised a stunning $11,640. We're just $860 from reaching a goal that frankly scared the hell out of us when we started this thing. Because of you, we have already purchased:



In the coming weeks, we'll be booking tours and dinner cruise reservations, getting our visas, and doing the eight million last-second things that this trip requires. [personal profile] gridlore is actually upset that 2016 is a leap year, because it means waiting one more day.

But we want to end this year's fundraising with a bang. If everyone reading this gives just a little - ten bucks, five, even a dollar - we can meet the goal and be secure in the knowledge that we are paid for.

So ring that bell a few more times before we ring in the new year.

Thanks again to all of you for making this happen. Doug is getting to see a place he's dreamed of since childhood, we're both getting an amazing 25th anniversary trip, and you will get a ton of photos.

Darn it, we chipped in another $25, but Generosity seems to have hung on the donation-payment screen. I'm afraid to refresh the screen because we might get double-charged, but I'm also concerned that the payment didn't go through. I'm going to close the window and maybe in a few days we can see if the charge went through -- and if it did not, we can do it again.

(This is what travelswithkuma was supposed to pay in our original donation.)

I'm having issues with the site myself right now, but I'll let you know if/when the donation notification arrives in my inbox. And thank you!
