Holy Direwolves, Batman!

The response to our fund-raising campaign on Prizeo has been nothing less than mind-boggling.

One day into the campaign, the original $150,000 goal and the subsequent $200,000 goal have both been met and surpassed.  As I type, donations stand at $231,000, and we have raised the goal to $400,000.  And we still have 58 days to go!

Every donations helps, whether large or small.  You guys have made me very proud.

Once again, the link is

I am told this is the fastest-rising campaign in the history of Prizeo.

I'm so glad for these wolves!
Such a great cause! I bet these furry rascals are going to get a beautiful improved habitat! Would love to see some pictures when the improvements are all done eventually :D

Between this and LeVar Burton's Reading Rainbow kickstarter, avid readers are making a huge impact on the world this week!

Glad to lend my support to this cause- thanks for rallying the troops, George!

Thanks!
George, thank you for doing this for such a noble cause. I missed the opportunity for a book mention, but should another one become available I would be interested in another donation. Are you thinking about adding more rewards with the increased goal?

There is a big cat refuge about 20 miles away from us which I have admired for many years and have helped promote.

About 4 years ago, they were approached by another facility which had wolves and had an elderly wolf which was being abused by the pack. In the wild, it would have been driven from the pack and died, but these big hearted folks agreed to take in the old male wolf

A new enclosure was built for it and an even larger enclosure added in time. Two young wolves were brought in so the wolf would not be alone.

The old wolf has since passed on, but Cedar Cove continues to be a home to the younger wolves.

Wolf Sanctuary
It is inspiring that you have taken up this cause, George. Thank you. I donated and if I had more disposable income I would donate more. I hope this project exceeds all your wildest expectations, and that it touches your heart.

As a fan of your wonderful books and HBO series donating was a small way of saying THANK YOU!!!!

YES!
not only will I keep donating as much as I can afford as often as I can afford but I would be happy to slay [not that I have any desire to take a life] (any kin of mine of your choosing-should that be required) but I would happily perform a sacrifice to the Old Gods and the New, any sacrifice they might require....I will even keep my bronze sickle sharp should it be needed....

I love wolves as much as I love the world of ASoFaI you've created for us all, and it makes my heart literally burst with joy to see this being offered by, whoever the grand prize winner might be I think anyone that participates will end up being a winner one way or another.

Thank you!

Prizeo not allowing participants based on location?
Just a heads up: anyone else experiencing a message from Prizeo saying (paraphrasingly) "due to legislation around sweepstakes we can not allow participants from your location"?

Because I am unaware of any such legislation over here. If so, it sucks to be prevented from participating by Prizeo's interpretation of an apparently inexistent law.

Tried their customer support, but I just got a typified response stating the same thing that the message says. Anyone else got this?

Hugs
I don't wanna die without hugging you or someone like you!
Love dogs and I really appreciate your job with wolfs, their closest relatives. /*crazy fan mode off*/

Now, seriously, where is my hug? :D
