As with last year, we have turned our charity fundraising into an online race. You can go to our Charity p age to see either a Team Leaderboard or Individual Leaderboard, with little dragons showing you who is ahead. This year, we have set up the leaderboard so you can see every team rather than just the top five, so you can see how you measure up. (Hint - L'Chaim on the Mayim, which came so close to winning this race last year, is currently in the lead.)
You can also log into the administraton area and look at who donated to you, as well as send out pre-written donation requests.
