Ars village gives some-more than $36,000 in annual gift drive

Over the last month or so, I’ve been pestering Ars readers to give as much as they could in the 2017 Charity Drive sweepstake. All told, Ars Technica readers donated $36,738.11 to Child’s Play and the EFF by the 2017 gift drive. That’s a bit next the roughly $38,000 gait in the last two years, but the sum is still much aloft than every other year we’ve run the drive. Good job!

Thanks to everybody who gave whatever they could. We’re still very early in the routine of selecting and notifying winners of the swag giveaway, so don’t tatter if you haven’t listened if you’re a leader yet. In the meantime, enjoy these discerning stats from the 2017 drive.
