NO JOURNEY STARTS WITHOUT FEAR AND TREPIDATION. SO START THE JOURNEY, ONE STEP AT A TIME.
This is a quote I heard a long time ago that I liked so much that I wrote it down on a scrap piece of paper and pinned it to our board. As I was frantically packing tonight I saw it and thought it would be great to share here.
And now what you’ve all been waiting for…we have such wonderful news to share with you about how much money we have raised. This is our final fundraising tally before we head off in the morning. And we are gobsmacked! In the last couple of days, including today, there was a rush of donations flooding in 🙂 Check it out below.
check out the final tally here!
In just over 6 weeks we have raised this money to assist children in Vietnam who are less fortunate than many. Thank you, thank you and thank you to all of you who contributed to our little (that grew quite big) fundraising effort. It has been one step at a time and there are many more steps ahead on our journey.
And so it’s here – 1 sleep to go. The kids are still up: loads of excitable energy springing around from room to room; the flat backpacks are now fully rounded; the first aid kit is bigger than anything I’ve ever seen; but we are ready.
Once again, we cannot express how grateful and happy we are to be able to stay with these children and make a difference.
Chat with you when we are in KL and Vietnam.
