Okay - The Angel Tree is kind of officially over and it looks like we didn't get all the babes over the wall....
Last night the Tree got a bit of a glitch in it and the donations stopped recording on the Angel Tree tally for each child in the last several hours.
So working blind... a bunch of Warriors worked hard to get these five over the wall!!
Jamison, Adele, Novella, Evelyn and Annalisa
I STAND UP AND APPLAUD THOSE RR WARRIORS WHO SPENT HOURS LAST NIGHT WORKING BLIND!! THEY WERE CREATIVE AND PASSIONATE AND BABES MADE IT OVER DESPITE EVERYTHING....
I ALSO STAND UP AND APPLAUD ALL THOSE WHO WERE WORKING TIRELESSLY ALL DAY YESTERDAY TO MOVE THE BABES UP THAT WALL!!
Any checks that were mailed and dated before 12/31 count towards the tree and checks were NOT picked up yesterday. So there are checks out there that I KNOW will get some more babes over the wall...
Not all the Angel Tree Dollars have come in yet...
It ain't over until it's over people!!
But regardless of the outcome....
I'M CALLING IT.... WE WON!!
In the last few days alone the Angel Tree raised over 30,000.00!!!
(My Giveaway recorded $15,804.00 in donations but half the people who donated did not enter into the Giveaway)
When I started our Giveaway a large number of babes on the tree were sitting with $500.00 in their grant account..
As of right now the lowest number on the tree is 575.00 and only 21 babes are under 600.00.
AND LOOK AT HOW MANY BABES WERE SEEN....
Yesterday afternoon we were doing everything we could to get their faces out. Everyone was picking a babe or two or three and putting them on their Facebook status. Sharing with their friends the need.
One RR Mom put little Tessa on her wall...Tessa still needed around 450.00 to be fully funded.
She shared that Tessa came from the same place as one of her children. She begged for someone to SEE her!
She then went to go feed her babes.
When she came back she checked on Tessa.
SOMEONE HAD DONATED $1,000.00 TO TESSA'S GRANT ACCOUNT!
Someone SAW Tessa.
That alone is why I say WE WON! We won!
IT WAS A GREAT ANGEL TREE SEASON.
THANK YOU THANK YOU TO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU WHO PARTICIPATED...
