Oops sorry!

I have been moved to tears this morning! This is just amazing! I imagine those babies and children, and how much of a difference this will make for them. The thought of babies suffering just hurts me terribly... the thought of moms getting together to relieve that suffering and bring smiles to their faces warms my heart.

Thank every one of you! This just made my entire year!!!!

Teri - dashing to pick up my older kid from school now, no time to change sig.

This is an incredible example of what everyone's contribution can add up to. Granted, some people were able to spend much more than others, but when you add everyone's contributions together- that's a LOT of money. How awesome to be a part of something so generous.

ETA- the AFO website thanked FF for $2300 in donations- anyone know if they just haven't received the notification of the final amount? Is the $$ going anywhere else besides AFO?

Half-marathon running Mommy to 3 spunky girls and 1 sweet boy. Spending my days and nights where my kids need me most- at home with them!!

The $2300 was LAST years total, payments are still coming in and we won't have the final total posted there for a few more days (until all the payments are in to AFO) the total looks like it is well over 10 thousand though.

ETA the site says

February 2004 was Fundraising-a-rific!!
First, on behalf of Aid for Orphans we want to express our heartfelt thanks to the WAHMs (Work-at-home-Moms) involved in the Fluff Factory auctions to raise monies for Aid for Orphans!
and goes on to say we raised $2300 but that was 2004! 2005 we have nearly multiplied that by FIVE!! YAY

:LOL Well, if I had read it correctly and noticed that it was last year's total, I wouldn't have been confused :LOL

This is why pg women shouldn't be in charge of stuff like heavy machinery or finances- at least ones who get as spacey as I do

yay! thanks for pointing it out to me marnie
