Chipping away !!

I have issued a challenge - I will match $ for $ every donation that gets a child up to $20. For example - if you donate $10 to a child, I will donate $10 to that same child, or another child with less than $20. If you donate $50 - unfortunately, I can only match the amount that got them up to $20. I will keep matching until every child listed below is up to $20. Please do what you can !

This was where we stand as of about 6.30pm this evening. There are now only 24 children with less than $20 - and that will change when I get my matching donations in - 17 children have already jumped over the $20 wall this evening, and 2 are a few dollars closer !!!

UPDATE - I will make my matching donations tomorrow (Good Friday). Things are going so well, I'm having a hard time keeping up :):) I will figure out in the morning who still needs $$, and then post who my matching donations have gone to. IF, by some miracle, all (or most of) the kids have made it to $20 - I will try and split my donations as fairly as possible. Thank you to everyone who has donated and/or shared !
