Here’s the accounting.
We have had orders for 41 trolls. However, the money totals a bit more than that. That’s because a few people donated a little bit more than the total amount required. There was one troll that was a freebie, but the person made a donation anyway.
41 trolls X $20 each = $820.
However, Paypal takes its pound of flesh, amounting to $0.88 per troll. Again, this is approximate because people donated in excess of what they had to.
And I sent Debra the postage money.
(Trevor Bartley is Debra’s husband.)
$820 – $205 for postage = $615
Then subtract Paypal fees and the net balance is shown above.
The cost a week’s camp for a child is $300. We’re less than $4 from sending two kids to camp. I’ll toss in that extra money and make it an even $600 when I send it. I am delaying the transfer until the trolls are actually shipped, just in case there are problems of any sort.
It’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it?
These are “our” kids.
