Depends on the day :p We had a 2 million dollar day when we opened the
floodgates in the US, UK, CA, AU, and NZ (We had five; I think NZ was the
fifth.)

Keep this in mind though; if the fundraiser is expected to raise ~35M
that's ~100k a day we need to raise! And the amount we're expected to raise
keeps going up.
