Ambergram charitable donations have been made!! $1600 raised for six causes.

Project Ambergram is almost concluded, with the last of the gifts themselves being delivered to cast and crew shortly. In the mean time, all of our charitable donations have been made! After an ad hoc Twitter poll conducted yesterday, we decided the fairest way to designate the funds was to split them between all charities, giving weight to Alzheimer’s research, our twice previous poll winner. Above the cost of purchasing and shipping the Ambergrams themselves, Fringe fans raised a remarkable $1600 in charitable donations, more than three times our original goal, and funds were distributed as follows:

Alzheimer’s Association – Inspired by And Those We’ve Left Behind: $600

FEAT – In honor of Jasika Nicole, her sister Sedric, and Alt!strid: $250

Arts Umbrella – In honor of the Vancouver cast and crew, and the power of art to change lives: $250

Oxfam International – Fighting poverty and injustice all over the world, donation inspired by Anna Torv: $250

Hurricane Sandy relief: American Red Cross – For the countless people affected by the disaster, including some of our own Fringies: $225

Hurricane Sandy relief: Humane Society – For animals injured or displaced by the storm. In honor of Gene, and in memory of Homey: $25

Way to #TakeTheLead to #BuildABetterWorld for #Human(and animal)Kind. You guys are amazing. :’)
