​Holy smokes, you guys, we did it!

With your help, I’ve reached my goal of one day raising $1000 or more in a school bake sale. The total raised in this crazy, haphazard, I’m-doing-it-remotely-while-working-with-a-touring-band bake sale is $1080. ​

​!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am overwhelmed with excitement and gratitude and hope.​

I get to go purchase the gift cards today, and then I get to give them to a group of special middle school kids tomorrow, when we get to the world’s coolest bookstore.  ​

This is how good things happen in the world. Little by little, with small groups of dedicated people, to borrow from Margaret Mead. ​

THANK YOU to each of you who helped by offering to bake, by buying the baked goods, by giving your dollars, and by believing this is a worthwhile cause. As a person who found deep solace in books as an adolescent, I can tell you how much of a difference your help will make in the lives and minds of these kiddos.​

​Okay, now I’m getting weepy.

Thank you, again, from the bottom of my heart. I can’t wait to tell you all about tomorrow’s field trip!​​
