My house was a hub of excitement last night, and into the morning. It was awash in the sounds of email dings, donations literally pouring in from all over the world. I really can’t believe it. ALL OVER THE WORLD!
It seems that this little note from a gradeschool teacher has touched something in so many of you. And that there seems to be a great need to do something to help a school system in need.
My goal was to raise half of the $950.00, and at last count the total raised stands at $834.00! I had thought it would take a few weeks, but it happened over the course of one night and a morning. I got goosebumps.
So I’m going to close the donation link. I will be donating $500 of my own money. Many of you wrote me about the site donorschoose.org, a site where you can donate to classes for materials that they request. So this is where the money will go.
I will do the draw for the book giveaway tomorrow. So check back to see if you’ve won! A hearty thank you to all of you who donated. I am so excited to write Mr. Nesloney to tell him the good news.
more to come…
