We have completed and closed our 2019 Fundraiser.

Victoria Leigh and I would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to everyone who supported us.  Many of you are long-time supporters :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:.

I would like to apologize to those of you I haven't yet contacted personally.  This year has sadly been a comedy of errors behind the scenes, which started with me deleting our fundraising widget instead of editing it, and needing to go into our PayPal account to capture the button code.  This led to our discovery that our PayPal account was blocked -- we only access it for a few months a year during the fundraiser -- and that we needed to set up a new PayPal account -- Victoria is a saint, because try to get a human to speak to --  that our email accounts were intermittently not receiving any mail, we had various backend access blockages, an upgrade partially disabled our widget and disabled the one on BT4D, and that's just what I remember.  Victoria and I are still working on piecing together the donor list, and we're very close.  I'll be writing to donors this week.

Normally, we like receiving mail from each other, but for the last month, we opened each other's mail with great trepidation, 🤣.

And then I pressed the button to upgrade Ballet Talk for Dancers with a security patch that worked mostly for BA! (aside from widget issues), and I blew up BT4D, and the "self fix" instructions led me into an infinite loop.  It eventually was fixed by our hosts, but we feel a bit snake-bitten this year.

Except for you great generosity and patience.

Helene, I have been offline for quite some time, so I will contribute to BA this week. Thank you, as always, to you and our BA community.
