WoW-A-Thon -> The End
Posted on July 10th, 2011 by Grim

We are still tallying up the final attendance figures, but at 8:00 this morning, most of Team Grim was completely zombified.  I’d like to thank the following folks for stepping up to help Mooskulls on his quest for levels.

Lochlin, Jay, Sheryl, Trevor, Ben, Jason, Ian.  (and those were just the guys who were playing as, or grouped with, Mooskulls for the evening.)

Thank you to Jenn and Ben for your very generous donations on-site. (and especially to Jenn for levelling her own character, on her own, for the full duration.  Even though she played an Alliance character, that girl has some serious stamina. (vis-a-vis most of Team Grim taking power naps at certain points during the night))

We got Mooskulls to level 30 which is a nice round number and makes it easy to figure out how much our pledgers will be sending us… especially when us old guys are in a serious sleep deficit.

To give you guys an idea how much even dollar counts…

  • 50 dollars = Co-Pay for a doctor’s visit. (which he has to do monthly from now on)
  • 500 bucks = A PET scan, which Jay will require 3 times/year for the rest of his life.

That money is what insurance does not cover.  Politics aside, having health insurance is no guarantee that medical bills won’t put a severe hurting on a person’s finances.  Every dollar that came in last night will make a profound difference to Jay and his family.

Between the donations that we have received so far and what we did last night, we’ve managed to cover most of Jay’s medical payments for the next year.  “Thanks” doesn’t even begin to cover it, but thank you to everyone who came out to show their support, or were with us in spirit.
