Wow! Amazon has given Clarion West a $25,000 Challenge Grant!

This is so exciting for us. In honour of our 25th Anniversary, Amazon will match, dollar for dollar, donations made to Clarion West up to $25,000. See official press release here.

This is so cool, as will help ensure Clarion West's sustainability.

Thanks to everyone for support of and participation in such fundraisers as the Write-a-thon, which helped ready us for such a challenge!

During December 2008 and January 2009 we have another challenge grant up to $2,500 from SF3 (the organization that sponsors Wiscon), making $2,500 of our donations during those two months worth four times the donation amount (as the 3SF challenge will double donations, and the Amazon challenge will double *that*).

I am just delighted, and hope everyone will think about helping us meet these challenges, especially as if you donate during December and January a $10 donation will be $40 for us, and a $100 donation will mean $400.

I'm bouncing off the walls to think how our longtime friends at SF3 and our new friends at Amazon are helping us make the most of the community’s contribution to the long-term success of Clarion West.

How many excited superlatives can I put here?
