Thanks to all of you and to friends around the world, today my birthday wish came true!
Goal: raise $720 for Acumen Fund online in 5 days
Unexpected result: learning by doing; seeing what does and doesn’t work with direct fundraising appeals; being touched and moved by old friends, readers, and family who chose to participate in ways large and small.
I’m off to celebrate. Have a great weekend, and thank you for all you did.
