I heard from MARC a bit or so ago, and the donations total is up to $15,000. Thank you wonderful generous souls for helping me turn a lot of sorrow into nothing but good. I think if Tunch knew that dozens upon dozens of cats and dogs and people are going to be able to rescue each other because of his passing, he’d be happy. Who am I kidding, he wouldn’t have given a shit at all. Regardless, I was mentally running the numbers and I will never know for sure, but it would not surprise me that Tunch’s visage and all the wonderful people who helped put up the Balloon Juice store and create the calendars and all you generous readers have raised something in the order of 50-70,000 dollars to help other animals. It’s just amazing.
Some cat. Some magnificent fat bastard. Bless him and you all. And yes, we will be turning this into a shirt.
BTW- I forgot to tell you something that made me laugh out loud. I was talking to JenJen last night about how much money you all had donated and Tunch had helped to raise, and she said “Somewhere, Sarah McLaughlin is yelling ‘WHO THE FUCK IS TUNCH?'”
