I will update this as new stories are posted and/or new pledges are listed in this forum thread.

For comparison, the last story challenge raised $325 in pledges. Can we beat that amount this time?

Here is our latest pledge update. A big thank you to curiouswombat for her new pledge!

We are running a funding deficit of $130. Right now, our monthly subscriptions provide $25 per month, with is 1/6 of the monthly hosting cost of $150.

I would like to raise $880 in pledges for this challenge, which would, with the existing subscriptions, cover the hosting deficit and pay HASA's hosting costs through June. We have $220 currently pledged if enough stories are written, so we're a quarter of the way there.

Authors - we need more stories to earn all of the pledges. Your challenge stories will be featured on the home page for four weeks, starting today.

Readers - we need more pledges to get to our funding goal. Small pledges add up, so even if you can only donate a little, every little bit helps.

Thank you!

Yes, I know you are, Aruthir, thank you! And thanks to Archeress for her entry this morning, too.

I've entered a story in The Hobbit Challenge, with a medical theme.

TOTALS 4 pledges   19 stories $270

Here is our latest pledge update. We have 19 completed stories and two challenge placeholders. We have not had any more challenge pledges and all four of our existing pledges are maxed out, for a total of $270.

We are running a funding deficit of $200. This is counting a story pledge that has already been paid. Right now, our monthly subscriptions provide $25 per month, with is 1/6 of the monthly hosting cost of $150.

I would like to raise $880 in pledges for this challenge, which would, with the existing subscriptions, cover the hosting deficit and pay HASA's hosting costs through June. We have $270 currently pledged if enough stories are written, so we're almost a third of the way there.

With the current pledge levels, we will cover the debit from the end of 2012 plus the new cost of January hosting, but will back in the red after February hosting is paid on 2/27.

Re: The Hobbit Challenge Pledges

I'm sorry I could only contribute stories. Real Life is kicking my ass right now.

 

 

Re: The Hobbit Challenge Pledges

Stories are good!  Without them, the challenge wouldn't get very far ...
