An extra $50,000 that will help, you know, legalize a needle exchange and the lock zone access and if you stayed next year, an extra $60,000 that's going to help us, uh, you know, get out the vote in Michigan in 2018 another $50,000 that's going to help us bring so many more students to our next conference. And so if anybody would like to help us do those things and participate in this work, they can just go to [inaudible] dot org slash match and make a gift right there and make it possible for us to bring more students to conference and to do all of this amazing work.
