My birthday fundraiser was a success!

My birthday fundraiser closed last night. This means I am now officially old. My fifty-second birthday was seven days ago, but by placing the fundraiser astride the birthday date, I gave myself the illusion of having one week more.
But if I am, indeed, old, I am also quite impressed, and grateful, by the response of my followers – that in the end collected 299$ for The Ocean Cleanup.
Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.
You are the best.

And 299 bucks’ 50% more than planned, and I really hope this small contribution helps pulling a bit of plastic out of our waters.
It’s been fun, and quite satisfactory, and I think I’ll do it again next year.
I’ll be older then, and I’ll try to collect more money for another worthy cause.
