It was an amazing weekend, with the announcement of the start of the Safelight Project on Friday. Almost immediately, the donations began pouring in, not only from readers in the US, but also one from England! I was so grateful for the immediate support, and the number of contributors.
Thank you so much to these wonderful donors! Pam A, Lesley G, Cindy B, Connie W, Vicki W, Amy D, Susan P, Sherrill P, Susan G, Loretta C, Bonnie H, and Linda D. We were well on our way to the goal in under two days. Then, on Saturday afternoon I opened up my email to find a donation notice that left me speechless, and you know that is not something that happens often, LOL!!
The amazing Dorothy F made the most stunning donation, and we rocketed past our goal! At this point, the project has enough money to do 120 bags!! Dorothy, I cannot thank you enough for your awesome generosity. As we exchanged emails, one thing she said resonated with me. She said “we are all in the same boat in this world, and being in that boat takes a lot of team work to get us all to the greater end.” So true.
I hope you are working on cards and case sets, as we’ll need even more now!
See the original Safelight Project post for downloads and shipping information.
So, I began ordering the bags and items for filling them yesterday. We are on our way!! I can’t wait to see what comes in the mail this week!
If you slept late over the weekend, I hope you are getting used to Daylight Saving time. I personally hate the changeover.
What’s on your list for this week?
