Thankful Today and Every Day

thank-you-515514_640This Thanksgiving, we here at Indies Unlimited have a whole lot to be grateful for.

On October 31 of this year, we created a GoFundMe to help cover our web hosting expenses. Within five days, we exceeded the goal of that fundraiser. That’s not something I ever expected, and it is deeply moving that our community values us so highly. Thank you so very, very much.

We appreciate each and every one of you, and are very grateful that you appreciate us. I’d like to give a special shout-out to the minions for their continued support over the years, too. I’m grateful for their generosity. We wouldn’t be “we” without them.

I wish each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a holiday season full of love and happiness. Thank you again for being a part of the Indies Unlimited family.
