Thanks to Everyone Who Contributed for Leviticus’s Baby Girl

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:12 am



On February 13, I posted that our longtime commenter Leviticus was lucky enough to experienced the birth of a daughter: Shirley Beatrix M.

Commenter Simon Jester had suggested passing around the hat for Shirley, and other commenters told me they would like that. So I did.

I told people that they could be anonymous in their gift-giving if they wanted, or publicly anonymous but known to Leviticus, or not anonymous at all. I’m publishing the amounts in this post, partially for transparency (so that everyone will know that their gifts got to Leviticus), and partially so that Leviticus can have the chance to publicly thank folks.

Patterico: $100
Anonymous: $100
Simon Jester: $100
felipe: $100
nk: $50
aphrael: $50
Anonymous: $25
Jeff Lebowski: $20

The totals below add up to $545.00, which I sent to Leviticus today. Thanks to those who contributed. If you think I overlooked your donation, leave a comment or email me, but I’m pretty confident I didn’t.

The window is not closed; if you still want to contribute I will update this post. PayPal the money to patterico AT gmail DOT com.

I have asked Leviticus for pictures.

UPDATE: Colonel Haiku: $75. Thank you. That brings us to $620.00.

UPDATE x2: kishnevi: $36. Thank you. That brings us to $656.00.

UPDATE x3: Anonymous: $25. Thank you. That brings us to $681.00. All has been sent to Leviticus.

UPDATE x4: Hoagie contributed $150. Thanks to Hoagie for that very generous contribution, which I sent to Leviticus this morning. That brings Shirley’s 529 fund to $831.00.

UPDATE x5 3-8-18: EPWJ sent a $29 contribution around the time we were collecting for Leviticus’s girl, but did not specify that it was for her. I sent him an email asking whether it was and he confirmed that it was. I sent the contribution to Leviticus this morning. That raises our grand total to $860.00. Thanks again to everyone who contributed.

  6. I did find it and will update. It came from a real name. May I share your real name with Leviticus?

    Patterico (115b1f)

  7. I would not share it on the blog but only with him and only if you say it’s OK.

  10. Patterico if you mean me, yes, of course.

    Actually, I’ve mentioned my real name here more than once, as a tangential thing. And I realized a few months ago that my handle is so distinctive that Google could track me down without much trouble.

  15. Seems fitting…

    “Surf’s Up! Aboard a tidal wave.
    Come about hard and join the young
    And often spring you gave.
    I heard the word.
    Wonderful thing!
    A children’s song.
    A children’s song, have you listened as they play?
    Their song is love and the children know the way.”
