So without further ado, we have donated the money raised from this project.
We were able to donate an amount of $9,669 to St. Jude's Hospital. Here are the screenshot of the donation, and the details of our expenses.

With this journal, we conclude this project. Again, we would like to apologize for those of you who got affected by the shipping problem. Like we said on the front page, this book will NOT be printed again. To those of you who missed the chance to support us in this project and asked if we are going to do another one in the future, we don't have the plan now, but anything can happen. If we ever do decide to do another, please do support us again!
We will not be answering any more questions related to this project. We will leave this group open for anyone who would like to view all the amazing artworks by the contributing artists.
For the last time, we would like to thank everyone for their support by either purchasing the book, contributing art works to the book, or simply wishing us good luck, because without you all, we couldn't have done it.
PS. We'd like to explain one thing - People who have worked with mass printing places will understand this. The printing of 500 books versus 600 books had perhaps a $40 USD difference in price. This is because the cost of paper is negligent compared to the cost of setting up a HQ art book printer. Thus, we were able to ensure free copies to all participating artists WITHOUT compromising the amount of money we could donate. To be honest, most of the cost lay in the shipping, which we underestimated.
Edit: Consolidated & relabeled some of the costs for clarification.
