That’s right! You did it! Mission accomplished! We raised $3,094!! Eeeeeeee! Get up and do a happy dance! Fist pump, throw your hands up, Numa Numa, and then do the Spongebob Dance! And then squeal out loud! Here’s a note from African Road’s co-founder, Kelly:
Lori and I will both be in Burundi and meeting with Flo and Evariste next month.
We’d like to wait to inform them of the goal completed until we are with them and then all together work on a plan for implementation that makes each participant’s role clear and sets time frames.
Since this is a pilot project it’ll be really interesting to evaluate each step of implementation and then consider the prospect of other villages with those things in mind.
We’ll hold off on fund raising for the next community till we know how close to target we are with this fund raising goal
Sarah– you have both accomplished and started something really remarkable. And a lot of lives in Butterere will have a huge road block removed because of your determination. And your awesome friends and family.
Can you picture my face? With a big goofy grin splashed across it? Can you picture all those people in Butterere at the ceremony? Can you imagine what kids of doors will open for these 309 Batwa Burundians?! Eeee! We did it!!! Thank you to each one of you who helped make this possible. As Kelly said, it is because of you, awesome friends and family, coming together that this is going to happen.
What next? The summer has only just begun and this fundraising thing has just gotten up and rolling. If you need eggs, sheep products, or a look at this stupid grin please come by the farm! The money raised for the rest of my summer will be set aside until we see how this first round of citizen-izing goes. Eeee! I just got really excited again!
I love you all!
