WE DID IT!!!!


We Did It.

Exactly 14 days ago, I wrote about Project Generator
where my goal was to raise USD$800/£511
for

I had the crazy idea of raising the total before Christmas, 
without really realising that Christmas was only 2 weeks away!

Some kind people blogged and tweeted about it, spreading the word....
donations came from all round the world....
many of them from people I don't know at all.
the kindness of strangers....

We have raised EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS....

the Home needs a generator to function on the 3-4 days a week when the electricity simply doesn't function.

They will now have that generator.

Fabulous. Fantastic. Brilliant. Excellent.

I'm so happy!!!

A huge massive enormous thank you to everyone who donated - 
be proud for making a difference and for caring.

....we did it....
