Happy almost New Year! Thanks for all the generous gifts and kind encouragement! Hoping 2014 brings even greater joy, more prosperity, and if not the courage to overcome any obstacle. See you all in the New Year.
Merry Christmas eve"¦we hope everyone is having a warm and joyful holiday, surrounded by great friends and family.
As we are at home sick I am reminded how awesome our school is...E smiles this morning after getting cleaned up from a flu-like escapade and says "but mom I cannot stay home we don't have any language work for me here" Too funny! Thanks for all the support keeping my girl in an astounding learning community!
Hey yo incredible community of supporters...we are so close to our goal, let's get there before the year ends! Please let your; friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, dog walkers, or anybody else know about this great opportunity to give to a great cause.
As we prep our turkey for friends-giving tomorrow I am mindful of how much we have to be thankful for...not only the generosity of our community with their finances but also with their lives, great joy, great games, great memories! We know the best people which make our world more wealthy than we could hope for!
In a quick couple of days we have broken the $7000 mark! What in incredible accomplishment, thank you to all who have given! This week in school Eleanore and her friends have worked on new language skills, made applesauce from scratch, and enjoyed the chill of almost winter as they play outside! What a wonderful school and educational journey you are helping to support!
Shout-out of the day: Thanks to the oh-so-many neighbors who have shared our video. 7+ of our donors or totally unknown to us! How cool that when we share meaningful stories even people who do not know us directly give to a great story! Thanks for keeping everyone connected and sharing our exciting story!
Wow, friends and family and unknown neighbors"¦we have done an incredible job! Thanks to all who have watched, shared, and supported our awesome cause. Lets keep up the great work and break $7,500 before Thanksgiving!
Towards the end of today The Great MN Give to the Max day -I am overwhelmed with gratefulness as I see how many wonderful causes and organizations there are to support. Thank you to all who have chosen to support us and our cause, we are so appreciative. Please continue to share with those who have not heard about our exciting campaign. Happy almost Friday
WOW, what an incredible surprise to log onto our page and see an anonymous giver who contributed $2000"¦accompanied with other gifts of equally great meaning, we are over 60% in less than 2 weeks! How encouraging! Thank you for sharing and functioning as wonderful community!!!
Dear all - we are close to $3000 in online giving in less than one week - WOW! Thank you seems to be such an insufficient response, but THANK YOU nonetheless! We were just notified that an anonymous donor sent $1100 directly to Eleanore's school so our total is $3800!!!! Incredible support we are so appreciative.
Fun addendum - There are only 30 days in November so our goal is as such the 30th of Nov. rather than the 31st"¦opps! Also thanks to all who have given and shared our website we are so grateful and excited to break $2000!
Thanks to all those who have already supported - how incredibly encouraging! Also a number of you have asked if we have a deadline - our goal is Nov. 31st, but anyone is welcome to give whenever they can. Thanks
We are hoping to raise the funds needed to cover costs for one year of school for Eleanore (Nora Mae)! She is a delightful and bright 2 year old, and despite my best efforts as a single mom, I cannot secure enough funds to keep her in school. Please see our video for more specifics - and thank you for your time and generosity. Alica (mom) and Eleanore
