Charity: Water Donation and Happy New Year!

Back on December 1st I announced my Social for Charity effort in which I would donate $1 to Charity: Water for every comment, tweet, Facebook like, or Google+ made on StockTradingToGo during the month of December. This also included new Facebook fans.

With December coming to a close, the results are in! Before I share the numbers though I want to say a quick thanks again to Rafal Tomal for donating his time and making the awesome graphic that was displayed site-wide throughout the month. So with that said, the final numbers are below (Note each number is the total for the full month of December):

Total Comments = 57
Total Google +s = 4
Total Tweets = 64
Total Likes = 20
New Facebook Fans = 28

Grand Total = 173

My original goal was to reach $500, and while we didn't quite make the mark, I am still very pleased. Thank you to all of you readers who participated!

Instead of just donating $173, I have gone ahead and doubled the total then rounded for a new donation amount of $350.

Thank you again for all the support throughout the past month.

Happy New Year to you all. See you back here in 2012!
