A huge thanks to everyone that donated to Episcopal Relief and Development as part of our Bucks vs. Ducks Challenge with the Dioceses of Oregon and Eastern Oregon. The amount raised was impressive for a campaign lasting just a few days.

Oregon and Eastern Oregon collected 286 total donations for a total of $5,345, and our combined Ohio/Southern Ohio team edged them out with 297 donations totaling $9,925.

Three cheers also for the Ohio State Buckeyes, who (not surprisingly) were victorious over the Oregon Ducks. And hats off to my fellow Oregonians for their (also not surprising) grace and good humor. God is good.
