The Regretsy community takes a lot of insults from people who don't like the site, and that's fine. However, when the time comes, we pull together in a big way.
April and her team put out a call for people who had trouble giving their kids Christmas gifts. They researched the submissions and came up with 200 children. They then put out a call for funding and hoped to raise $4000 for these kids in a week (they worked out a discount for buying such a large quantity at once).
Within a few hours, we had overfunded the project.
There will now be money to get the kids their presents and to give the families a little extra. It does my heart good. Regretsians have always been great with charity drives, but this one takes the cake.
