          I understand the reluctance of some people to donate their own money to charity, but I'll never understand the general reluctance to donate OTHER PEOPLE'S money,. It's simply baffling to me that all 180 slots didn't get filled!

            We did finally fill up every slot -- took about 3 days, but I'm happy to report that 193 reader requests (and 50-some site sponsor requests) have been fulfilled. A BIG thank you to all who stepped up and donated to 10 different charities (and
            Physician (Pathologist)
            artemis who donated to 13 as we went over by a few).

            You'll recognize a few of these names:
            • Vagabond MD
            • Artemis
            • Jerome Enad, MD
            • Physician in Numbers
            • Old F.I.R.T – Financial Independence Retire Tardy
            • TheDangerZone
            • Bob & Amy Haines
            • Walz Helmick Charitable Fund
            • Matt and Kimberly Schoeck
            Thanks again for your generosity and support!
