I need to apologize. I thought I'd come home from camping over the long weekend, send out a few emails, post a few status updates, and raise a couple hundred bucks to help kids, youth & families escape homelessness through the Homeless Children's Network.
But I was wrong. I grossly underestimated your generosity and enthusiasm for a great cause. In less than a day, I've gotten over $900 in donations - that's almost four times my fundraising goal. And a majority of that was donated by the good folks at RichRelevance. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude at how wonderful you all are. I don't know who I thought I was talking to, but obviously my expectations of you was entirely too low, and I'm gonna need to step it up a bit if I want to keep up with your awesomeness.
So what do you think, $1,200? $1,500? I bet we can hit $1,500. Sure, that's 600% of the original goal, but it's that much more funding for a local non-profit that helps kids overcome and even avoid the trauma of homelessness.
Donate here here here!!
And please let me know if you need a donation receipt. And if you'd like me to write anything special along with your name on my running outfit. Of course, if this keeps up, I'll be sharpying names onto my arms and legs, but I'm cool with that.
Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart!
