Goal!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I’d like to think it was a Christmas miracle, but whatever it was…

We made our goal of raising $1,000 for Jovenes!

In fact, at the end of December, we’d actually raised over $1,700!!!!!

I am beyond ecstatic and a little speechless.

I know times are tough right now – our economy stinks, people are out of jobs, and money is hard to come by around the holidays – but WE DID IT!!!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone that donated this year or spread the word or even just thought about it. Maybe donating next year will be an option.

Seriously – I can’t say thank you enough.

And a GREAT BIG thanks to my partner in crime – Holly – and her desire to raise money for Jovenes, too. This wouldn’t have happened without her.

Knowing that people donated to these boys just melts my heart. When I see them this coming summer, I’ll be able to see the faces that you all helped this holiday season, and that is priceless.

What a way to start 2011 Smile
