Breaking News: NamesCon WaterNight Raises $111,000

Let’s just say that NamesCon isn’t just breaking records when it comes to attendance, speakers, and content, they are also breaking records when it comes to helping people halfway across the world. I am incredibly excited to announce that WaterNight brought in a total of $111,000 in donations to the Water School tonight.

Here are a few photo highlights from tonight, more to come tomorrow (or today technically)
