This will be a short blog to let you know that we have achieved our financial goal of $40,000 -THANK YOU to all who have helped us get there. Our fundraising goal continues; we would be more than happy to accept further donations – the $40K is the minimum amount needed. Any surplus will go to help our family with the bill for the airfare they will be given once they arrive or we could agree to take a family of 6 rather than 4 – we promise to keep you posted and updated on how your donations are being used.
I am meeting with Claude Hould and the Chairs of the 9 other Sponsoring Committees on Sunday. We will be meeting to report on our status and talk about the tasks ahead for all of us.
