Thank you for your support!

7:42 AM – We are off to a great start!! $1,870 from 5 donors in the first 42 minutes.  Help us reach our goal today of 225 donors!  We can do it!  Spread the word!!

8:22AM – Woohoo!  Already doubled our donors to 10 for a total of $2,545 in donations!  Birney families are the best!

10:48AM – You people are all amazing!  We are currently at $6,420 from 41 donors!  I’m so proud to be a part of such an amazing community that values the education of not just their own child but the whole school.  Thank you!!

12:26PM – Last year at this time we had 77 donors, this year we are at 55, BUT we are around $500 up from this time last year.  Current status: $7,995 from 55 donors!  Way to go Birney!  Tell your co-workers, family, and friends to chip in so our kids can enjoy Spanish, Art, and Garden all year.

12:39 PM – Make that $8,505 from 58 donors.  Looks like we’re more like $1,000 over last year at this time but still 19 donors shy.

1:44 PM – Alright, we are over half way through the day!  We have raised $9,020 from 65 donors.  We are still well under halfway to our goal of 225 donors.  There is still time to spread the word!  Even small donations add up to a stellar education for your kids.  Thanks to all that have donated so far!

4:13 PM – I’m back!  Just finished watching the 4th grade assembly where I got to see our dollars at work.  Our Specials teachers are so fabulous and I’m grateful that our community is rallying to continue to support them.  We have now raised $10,655 from 82 donors!

6:21 PM – Holy Cow! 36 donations in a little over an hour!  We are now at $12,790 from 123 donors!  Still 25 donors down from last year, but just $35 shy of where we were this time last year.  Way to go!!

7:02 PM – I’m totally blown away by the generosity of our community.  In the last 40 minutes we have climbed to $14,351 from 153 donors!  We will keep things going a little longer, though, if you have not yet had a chance to make your donation.

8:28 PM – WOW! What a day! 185 Donors! $15,820 raised in a single day! That is 10 more donors and $1,500 more than last year.
