I got my math completely wrong in my last message.
That will teach me to do things quickly.
The pledges listed at the time of writing there are around 25 pledges totalling $1400. An average of $40 per pledge
(I got my USDGBP exchange rate confused last time)
Therefore if you have 3,662 pledges averaging $40 you've got approximately $146,500 in pledges already.
In John's latest email he indicated that he now only needed $100,000 in pledges. I think he has exceeded that.
The problem is this pledge system only records names not amounts pledged.
Maybe he would have been better to setup a charity and have people donate directly to the charity that way the amount raised would be clear and immediate.
