    • Hi Ashley,

      Possibly not? Unfortunately the person who handles the contest is out of town this week, so I can’t confirm or deny until he gets back. But thanks for pledging! And there’s always next year.

    • Hi Linda,

      I’m sorry this is happening…I’ve asked the web mods but everything is working properly on our end. 🙁 If you know someone who can access it, perhaps they can pledge for you. And thanks for pledging! (or trying to)
