Our fundraiser was a huge success!!! Words cannot express my feelings right now. A week ago, I had an *idea*. I wanted to donate $25.00 to the victims of the awful tornado that hit Moore, OK last week. I knew that it wasn't much, but wanted to do my part. Then, I randomly thought, "What if I organize a fundraiser"...I certainly did not expect it to do this well. I am SO proud of the education community. We all came together. From the teacher authors who donated their products and blogged about the fundraiser, to the people who donated and everyone in between...my heart truly is grateful to you. Today, a $29,394 donation was made on behalf of Teachers throughout this great nation. I was so PROUD to be an American, a teacher, a woman, and a blogger. This whole process just goes to show that one idea CAN make a difference. God doesn't plant the seed for us to waste it!
I give all of the credit back to you. You donated your hard earned money. You helped me spread the word. We came together and accomplished something so wonderful.
Some people have asked me if I am keeping a portion of this donation. I want to be clear, 100% of the money went to American Red Cross OKC Earmarked for Moore, OK!
If you donated and did not receive your product, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, PLEASE Check your spam and junk folders!!
So tonight I'm going to laugh with my family, relax, eat Chick Fila french fries (If you follow my fitness blog you know how big of deal this is) and thank God for the thousands of blessings I have in my life.
Thanks for going on this journey with me friends! God Bless!
