It's also great to see that so many major sponsors have also come forward.
However, I haven't noticed any support from the National Lottery.
I e-mailed their customer services asking what, if anything, the lottery was planning to do to support the Glasgow Games.
I received a reply advising that my inquiry had been passed on to another section.
I again e-mailed and was informed that someone would get back to me. I'm still waiting.
Given that Camelot got fully behind the London Olympics, even introducing a dedicated scratch card, surely it's not unreasonable to expect them to do something, anything, for Glasgow?
Or is it one rule for London, and a different rule for Scotland?

MY wife and I are just back from a holiday in Braemar.
We don't think this country should start covering the place in wind farms as suggested by Salmond and Sturgeon.
What about the promises of cheap electricity from the ones we have already?
If they are that good, why does the price of power keep going up? When will we see the benefits from the ones we already have?
Tourism is worth £5billion to Scotland every year, but the wind farms will put tourists off coming here.
They come because of the unspoilt scenery.
HOW heartening to read about Gordon McCormack and all the tremendous work he does as a sports coach (November 6).
He quite rightly sang the praises of all the disabled athletes who should be considered for this year's Sportsperson of the Year awards.
Together, Gordon and the athletes prove anyone can do anything, no matter their ability.
