Thank you to everyone who helped us meet that goal! At this writing, we have 64 donors and contributions totaling a magical (if you're into numbers) $4,444.
Since then, we've been focusing on getting enough Facebook shares to win a $300 bonus, which we are on track to collect.
We're still a long way from our own goal of $40,000, but we know we'll get there.
Because we met the requirements set by GlobalGiving, we have earned a permanent spot on its high profile charity website. Our project will remain there until we make that $40,000, so please, don't hesitate to continue to contribute or direct your friends there. We will also gratefully accept donations through our website or by the traditional check in the mail.
It was a great party, but only the beginning of what we can all do, together.
