We were very fortunate to have some media representation attend our big day and the Canadian Dad wrote a very touching piece on his blog. Pam, Jasmine and I all read and responded to the comments. If you haven't read the comments, you should because you know what team, we really did inspire some other people to get active and start helping, so that is very cool. We also had Blair from the newspaper come and we were published, not only published, but we made the front page and had a whole other page dedicated to our story. That was an amazing feeling and think about how many other kids will see that and wonder what they could do to make the world a better place?
Tomorrow we go to the Cancer Society to drop off the cheque and it seems they too want to interview some of us to get a story for their newsletter or website.
Obviously, all this attention is not going to our head, ha, ha! It feels good to be recognized for doing something special and we all need to stand back and realize we were just part of something truly inspiring.
I can't wait to see what you guys decide to do next. Who is hosting the next meeting? Let's aim for later in September once school has been in for a couple of weeks, so we know how much homework we all have. I don't think any of you are in my class, so I'll have to see you at the Charity Group meetings.
Bye for now and thanks for all your hard work and effort. $844 dollars worth! WOO, HOO!
