Post-CBS Early Show Fundraising Total

After the segment on this morning's CBS Early Show, Lucas' golf fundraising total is $940! He received donations from the camera man, producer, audio guy, two of my friends who showed up, and most of all from fellow blogger Sara and her parents. What wonderful and generous people, all of them.

A man came into the range after seeing Lucas on TV and wrote him a check, and the CBS Anchor pledged him $20.

He plans to continue the effort, submitting the donations in $1000 increments (matched dollar for dollar by the company I work for) indefinitely.

CBS will be posting the video on their website and I will post the link here when they've done that.

Thanks to everyone who watched... they changed the plan a bit, so it wound up being a teaser at the first 1/2 hour, and another one right before the interview segment at about 15 minutes before the end of the show. (If you TiVo'd it, speed up until you see the kid in the Superman t-shirt!)

If you would like to donate through Lucas, and have your donation matched by Unilever...the company I work for...please use the "donate now" button in my sidebar! Thanks!!
