Here is the list of all those who have purchased a CD.
Goal #1: 160 CDs pre-sold so I have enough money to record the project (and hopefully sell more after that to pay off the debt!).
Friday, March, 19th, 2010: The day I launched this blog:
Meri and David Rogoff and Alyson Ben-Yehuda: They are sponsoring a song – thank you!! That means they are giving me $300 toward the project (probably at the next Pacific Chorale rehearsal). That’s the equivalent of 20 CDs.
Devon Glenn purchased a CD through PayPal. Rather, she will once I sent that up. Thank you Devon. 😀 I miss you a lot – hope you are well! Are you still in New York? If so then you are the first one from New York.
Holly Demetrescu has purchased 10 CDs – what ARE you going to do with all of those? Let me know who I can write hellos/thank yous in the other 9 CDs…one is for you I assume. 😀
Michael Ben-Yehuda: He is sponsoring a song – my humblest of thanks. Another $300 toward the project. That’s the equivalent of 20 CDs.
Patrick Sullivan: purchased a CD. Thanks!! 😀
Jeff Morris: Also purchased a CD. Thanks so much Jeff.
Jan Bauman: Simply put said, in big print…. I WANT ONE!! 😀 I love it! Thanks, Jan.
Helen and Gordon Anderson: they would like a CD (and my first one from the San Fransisco area) 😀
Emily Sturman: with the youngest contribution so far. She’s one of my high school vocal students – would like a CD. Thank you my dear.
Diana Hensley: would like a CD. 😀
And with that, I’m signing off for today. (I’m an early sleeper)…so let’s see…that means that I have cheques coming in for 57 CDs – – WOW!
Amount left to reach goal #1 (selling 160 to record the project): 103 CDs.
Thank you everyone. Good night.

Amount left to reach goal #1: (selling 160 to record the project): I’ve sold 87 CDs (Just in case you’ve been visiting this page often, I’ve now opened a Spreadsheet with a calculator and am fixing my numbers – Sheesh! I was off by a LOT) 😀
Thank you so much everyone…I’ve passed the half way point. 😀
Happy Sunday to you!

I’ve sold 126 CDs as of this point!!
Amount left to reach goal #1: (selling 160 to record the project): Wow. 34 CDs left. Wow. I need to find another phrase other than “thank you.” I’m grateful.
It’s now Tuesday…Monday disappeared altogether 😀
Allison Terzyk has ordered a CD and paid through PayPal – thank you! 😀
Joanie Mears also purchased a CD through PayPal. I wrote you a separate email already.

And now, my first purchase from one of my family members: and now the new champions in the “youngest purchasers” category 😀
Chris, Karey, Michaela, and Jamie-Lynn Fedoruk purchased a CD. With Jamie-Lynn definitely being the youngest at 4 years and 1 month old 😀 – thanks Big Bro and family. These are the ones in the blog I told you about who sent me my Canadian blanket for Christmas – I get to see you soon!!!!! YAY!!
Ann MacDonald, David Post, Esther, “Mom and Hugh” – for those of you who read the blog: this is Ann. She’s the one I refer to in the blog about having a “Tribe” – and that’s her Western Washington tribe – thanks guys!! 😀 – that’s 4 CDs
22 CDs left to reach the first goal
If you are someone who has promised to purchase a CD but hasn’t paid me personally or through PayPal, could you please speak to me soon? Thank you all so very much!
😀 Goodnight everyone!
This is so cool – so close!
Paul Keilbach order a CD – thanks Paul!! 😀
Tiffany Wang ordered a CD – great to see you today…thanks so much 😀
Russ, Lori, and Ruth Schmalenberger ordered a CD…thanks so much!
Nancy Gerhard ordered 2 CDs and paid for them at church – thank you Nancy.
My Fedoruk Family purchased another CD – that’s in addition to the one up there from a few days ago! Thanks guys 😀
Tina Chen is ordering a CD through PayPal.
So is Vince Hans – thanks!
That takes me down to 14 CDs left…I hope I calculated that right…if any of you want to check my math. Please let me know if I made a mistake…and here’s a REALLY cool thing that happened today…I got an email from the Pacific Chorale office had given me an anonymous money order for $100. Just like that. No name or anything!! Thank you Anonymous #2. I knew who Anonymous #1 was, that person just wanted to remain anonymous. This person (Anonymous #2) – I don’t know who you are…I can’t thank you enough.
So, since CDs are $15 each, and they gave me $100, that’s 6 CDs with $10 extra dollars.
So, I’m now down to 8 CDs left to sell to reach Goal #1. Thank you all!!! 😀
Hi there – just getting back from Bach dress rehearsal – – so tired…but I’ve fallen behind on my adding of names…I’ll fix this page on Sunday night or Monday (I hope to)…
Thank you all once again!
Nancy Newman (fellow Canuck) and I just got off the phone…her and her husband Billy Kerr are purchasing 2 CDs – thanks guys! 😀
Laura Scott is buying one – thank you!
Megan Dipalo – from my high school teaching days in Maple Ridge – yay MRSS! Thanks for buying a CD my dear.
Must…have…sleep. 😀 Will add any others after this point later…I think I passed goal #1!! 😀 I’ll let you know soon (as soon as I can stop)…I also need to figure out what to make goal #2?!?! 😀
Okay…so great news! 😀
I have definitely reached goal #1: Joe Price on Sunday gave me $50 toward the project. That’s 4 CDs. and THAT is 160 pre-sold CDs!! And I saw many people last night who gave me cheques at rehearsal! Thank you!!
YAY!!!!! THANK YOU ALL!!!
I’m still going to need some time to catch up to see if everyone has really pre-paid. If so, I can officially schedule the band. So, with that, I’m going to sign off this page and make a new one for goal #2. Anyone that still purchases a CD before I press them will have their name in the thank you section of the liner.
On to to goal #2!
