We’re more than half-way there!

I was thrilled when I got the email from SMM treasurer Anne Todd yesterday: “Allan, attached, an update to today on gifts to date for the refugee sponsorship.”, which was followed by a small spreadsheet showing that donations since my last update to you had swelled from just over $9,000 to $27,880!  This means we are more than half-way to our fundraising goal of $50,000!

Thank-you to all of you who have contributed so generously to our campaign so far.  We still have a ways to go yet, but with this amount raised, we are ready to ask AURA to start the wheels turing to connect us with a family.  Please continue to tell friends and colleagues about our campaign: post something to Facebook (along with the URL murp.ca), Twitter, email your friends and family; in short, please do whatever you can to spread the word about what we’re doing.

In January, our team will be attending a training class with AURA to learn the ins and outs of what it means to be a sponsorship team, and we will be busy making plans for additional fundraising events, and our family’s arrival this spring (we hope).

Again, thanks for your continued support.
