stolen laptops

As many people may have already discovered, Clarion West had a theft on July 4th, resulting in four stolen laptops as well as several other items. What's amazing is that within a day, the SFF writing community has managed to gather enough money to replace those laptops that have been stolen.

I think any extra money will be returned to the donors. But I think since you were willing to donate in the first place, I would like to urge you to donate what they intended to give them anyway. Clarion West is a non-profit organization. Even though students may not need the money to pay for the laptops, they can still use the money for scholarships.

Currently, the write-a-thin is still going on. So you can sponsor someone on that list or just straight up donate money. If you're late about hearing of the CW theft and would still like to help, then this is a good way to do so.

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. I will post later this week about mine.
