Extend the fund drive? [View all]

Last edited Wed Feb 14, 2024, 04:22 PM - Edit history (1)

Happy Valentine's Day DU!

This year's Hearts fund drive is scheduled to end tomorrow (February 15), but I've received a number of requests asking that we give people a few more days to give and receive hearts. That's fine with me -- it's a fundraiser after all! But at the same time, I don't want to annoy people if you think it's gone on long enough already.

Tomorrow is Thursday, so if we extend the fund drive we'd just go through the weekend and end on Sunday night.

What say you, DU? Move on as planned, tomorrow? Or keep hearts going through the weekend?
