When pledging wrapped up Tuesday night Kwethluk had totaled $1,435 from seventeen contributors, one of which was the village corporation.  Following them was Toksook Bay who musterd $715 in pledging from twelve contributors.  Some last minute pledging from Atmautluak pushed the tundra village into third place with $630 from just four generous individuals.
