We're a little overwhelmed by the show of support. Some of it from people we have never met. When we thought that a few of you might want to help us help our friends, we didn't know what to expect.
On Friday morning, we posted a story about a family that we are friends with in Mexico.
I had said we would leave the link up until Monday, but we didn't expect to have to take it down early. But we did, because by Sunday noon or so, we had received a total of $970 from 32 different people!!!
But then I had emails from a couple of you wanting us to leave the link up for a few more days because they had wanted to participate. So we will be happy to send our friends a bonus if any of you still wish to contribute!
I have already sent the $1,000 by Western Union to our friends, and the money has been collected. We feel really good about being able to help them out, and I know they needed the help. Thanks again everybody!!
