Thanks to our amazing team of campaign volunteers, we have completed our visits with our returning families! The pledge forms continue to pour in, and we are thrilled to announce that our new total of gifts and pledges is $2.1 million!!! What a spectacular way to finish out 2015, and what an encouragement to our hardworking visitors. That's $600 000 raised in less than four months! Such a generous response from our families puts us well on our way to our 2015/16 milestone of an additional $2 million, and our hoped for 'grand milestone' of $3.5 million by Spring 2016.
On a personal note, it was a real treat to connect with families at our Fine Arts Festival last week, and to share in the Christmas spirit and creativity demonstrated by our students and teachers.
Have a wonderful holiday,
The Hope and a Future Christmas Tree
