Oh. My. Goodness.
Seriously. All I can say is Oh my goodness.
Remember how yesterday I posted about B giving up all hope of receiving birthday gifts in favour of raising money for Charity:Water? My daughter is walking around the house in a daze with about the biggest smile anyone has ever seen, and it is all because of this:
That’s a screen capture taken at her bedtime last night.
Do you see that lovely, lovely number of $225 raised so far?
Yup. She did it! She reached her goal of $150! In fact, she has surpassed her initial goal of $150 and she is thrilled. So thrilled that she has doubled her goal to $300.
All I can say is Oh My Goodness! You guys are amazing. Thanks to you, there are 12 people in the world whose lives have changed — 11 who will soon have water, and 1 little girl who has learned that changing the world for the better is entirely within her grasp.
Thank you so very, very much.
If you haven’t already donated and would like to help her reach (and surpass!) her new goal of raising $300 for Charity:Water, you can go to her campaign page at http:\\mycharitywater.org\kidscanwater and make a donation.
So? Will you do it? Will you donate $1 or $2 or $9 in honour of B’s 9th birthday? Please? Let’s show her what we can really do when we work together to help one little girl with changing the world!
