June 7th Birthday Project Update--$6,800 and climbing! Fantastic!

Unread postby part-time poet » Sat Jun 08, 2013 2:19 am

Here's a quick update on our 2013 Birthday Project fundraising . . .

the Zone has now received more than $6,800 in donations for Project Pueblo!


That's wonderful! :loveshower: Thank you so much to all our donors. :bouquet:

We have now collected enough money to provide water systems for four Navajo families (cost approximately $1,500), and we need only $200 more to reach a nice round number for Project Pueblo--a lovely $7,000. Or if we can raise $700 by Sunday, that would provide a fifth water system! Can you help us reach that goal by Sunday night?

:worldhug: and :highfive: to everyone who has contributed to this project. You are a great inspiration, showing what we can do when we work together.

Johnny's birthday is Sunday--let's see how much we can do for the Navajo people as his birthday gift.

Image This is amazing, so much in so few weeks, lots of pats on the back to all those that organised and donated to the project. (If I was flexible enough I'd give myself one) :lol:

Thanks for the update PtP, the weather here is warm and sunny but this has made the day feel even brighter. :goodvibes:

Reading about Larry's plans for house construction got to me. I am donating a second time.

I'm glad Project Pueblo exists to help these amazingly resourceful families. I'm glad the Zone recognizes the importance of helping folks out. It brings us closer, so we are a community prepared to take action in the interest of others' needs. Good stuff Zone!
