It’s officially spring break, and there are too many choices of what to celebrate–blue skies and spring dreams and family and….wait for it…over $92,500 raised so far from your 3-21 pledges for Ruby’s Rainbow. Your support is so appreciated and paves the way for a brighter future for so many individuals. As kids receive scholarships and make their way to college, I’ll be sure to share some updates of their journeys. Liz told me this week that she almost didn’t start Ruby’s Rainbow because she was only a few years into Down syndrome and she didn’t know a lot about running a non profit. Could she really make a difference? Would kids even apply for scholarships? She thought maybe later she’d start something, but went ahead and filed the paperwork, got things rolling. Today, she’s celebrating the success of 42 current recipients and the outlook of so many more thanks to your support this week. She almost didn’t start this dream. I have a lot of almosts, and this week I’ve been inspired by that first step. One foot print is better than none.
This weekend we will bravely go forth into the spring break throngs. Our beaches look like this right now:
All the colors.
And before we do any more celebrating, my house is in need of a cleaning blitz. I’m going in.
Happy Friday! Tackle an almost this weekend.
I’m over at eHow with some tricks for catching leprechauns. Catch one tonight!
