Today, The ALS Association announced it has surpassed $10 million in “Ice Bucket” donations. Specifically, as of Saturday, August 16, 2014, The ALS Association has received $11.4 million in donations compared to $1.7 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 16). These donations have come from existing donors and 220,255 new donors to The Association.
In a message posted today to The ALS Association’s website, which discusses how The ALS Association will use this incredible outpouring of support to fight ALS, Barbara Newhouse, President and CEO of The ALS Association said:
“Never before have we been in a better position to fuel our fight against this disease. Increased awareness and unprecedented financial support will enable us to think outside the box. We will be able to strategize about efforts in ways that previously would not have been possible, all while we work to fulfill and enhance our existing mission priorities nationwide.”

Here’s how I know I’m probably way too old to still be involved in fandom: people writing fic on AO3 are starting to use the term drabble to describe stories they are posting and it’s really starting to piss me off because exactly zero of them are actually drabbles. A drabble is a fic of exactly one hundred words. A short fic is just that. Or a one-shot if you feel the need to be more specific. Which you don’t really need to be since we’ll know that due to the fact that it’s not part of a series.
Apologies to anyone getting spammed by me in their ask tonight. I forgot where I left off on the list of people I needed to send the corrected instructions for the IP blocking to, so I’m playing it safe as to where I’m restarting from because I don’t want to miss anyone.
The original post with the instructions has been corrected, so anyone who goes to it now will see the right version, but I wanted to let the people who may have already installed it that they will need to fix it because I made a boo-boo. You leave out one forward slash and it gums up the whole works.
That is all. Carry on about your business.
Fucking finally, amirite?
This is the way to do it without anything extra showing up on your Tumblr theme whatsoever. I can’t guarantee the services used won’t change their TOSs in the future, but as of now neither requre a link back of any kind, which the other places with such scripts do.
Super-duper quick and dirty for people who are pretty comfortable with web stuff. If anyone needs a more detailed explanation please let me know and I’ll see what I can come up with. Anyway, here goes:thisaway
