    I just received the following update from her Go Fund Me campaign:

    A few months ago a fearful and ignorant act set off an avalanche. The avalanche was a thing of beauty, of support and of love. The snow kicked up into the sun and created a crystalline rainbow. Avalanches are relentless in their movement and breathtaking as they rumble down to the earth, shaking the ground. While thousands donated and thousands more offered support, the truth is that this project went from an artistic snow ball tossed in the face of hate to an avalanche. To deal with the debris, which includes taxes and an overabundance of resources it is with a saddened heart that all donations will be returned. If a time machine were available, it would have all ended at the original requested amount. It was never about the money but being happy in the face of intolerance. Do not for an instant think the support of spirit, art, love and monetary donations were for naught. A statement was heard across the globe, loud and clear was our avalanche. I ask you to take your donations back and give to local artists or educational nonprofit organizations.
    I'm guessing the initial "note" that sparked it all was a hoax. But I sure got a good laugh out of it.

    That is hilarious. Even if it was a hoax, "relentlessly gay" made a lot of people laugh, I'm sure. And it would be a great t-shirt.

    Don’t know if it was being overwhelmed with the response, attention and money or a hoax but hopefully local artists and educational nonprofits will now benefit.

    And being relentlessly gay has given me the ability to see her original line “ I will battle it with whimsy and beauty and laughter and love wrapped around my home, yard and family” fitting nicely with the now ending line “ the avalanche was a thing of beauty, of support and of love. The snow kicked up into the sun and created a crystalline rainbow”……that’s what I’ll take from this.
