In case you haven't seen Sister-Erin's blog yet...her Women's Center is FULLY FUNDED!
It happened sometime between 9:45 and 11:45 on Friday night. I checked at 9:45 and it still had $1,900 left. I checked before I went to bed at 11:45 and it was listed as fully funded! Amazing. Truly Amazing. In just ONE WEEK wonderful generous people donated $7,000....to help the Women of Erin's village. Because of generous family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, and people we have never met...donating, passing the word, hosting blog giveaways....this was made possible. She thinks they will be able to break ground in the next couple of weeks and she will be able to see this project to completion before she leaves in May of 2010.
There are still people who want to donate and there is still a lot more to do. Now that the building is possible, Erin is still collecting money for supplies such as yarn, needles, crocheting supplies, paper, books, training, etc. The $3,500 USAID grant will also help with the supplies. The $600 and counting total from the Spa Party the generous family at church had last night will also be added to the supplies total. Cash and check donations (written to our family) can still be made and we will be sending Erin the total soon.
Thank you again for supporting the work my sister is doing. And definitely read her blog post...she is so touched.
