DonorsChoose update: We did it!

Thanks to 25 Parenthackers (and some donors who contributed to this project outside of my challenge), this special education teacher got her wish fully funded -- over $1000 for purchasing music and movement equipment for her students. We've made a big difference to 70 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, and to a teacher who wants to do her best by them. I hope to make a trip to visit this class, and maybe even snap a few pictures.

As promised, I have a little thank-you gift for five randomly chosen donors. Will the following people please email me with your mailing addresses and the age(s) of your kid(s)?

  • Sarah Neal
  • Maggie Christ
  • Elizabeth Nielson
  • Heather Gianndrea
  • Kristina Knight

Thank you so much for joining me in supporting DonorsChoose and this project. It's a great feeling when things work out as they should.
