Wow! We did it.

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

Result as of 2:49pm 11:59pm, Aug 28, 2009:   $810.72 $968.72 raised ($380 $538 on Facebook Causes; $430.72 directly to Acumen Fund)

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.
