Crits for Water 2012 is
So, y’all made my life a shinier, sparklier place of awesomeness and fancipants, not to mention the lives everyone changed with your fabulous donations. We took my $10,000 goal and blew it out of the water.
With over $15,000 USD raised.
In three months, guys, we raised enough to give
more than 750 people clean water
about 150 families.
In about 18 months, everyone who donated will be able to see exactly where their money went. You’ll see the community you helped to change for the better–you may even be able to zoom in on google earth and see the exact water project that we helped build.
Everyone, I am so, so grateful. This was bigger and more wonderful than I’d imagined. Despite my (many) mistakes, y’all pulled together and just…
…well, I’m getting teary eyed typing this.
So thank you.
In other news, I've got some Water Stories prizes to give out! As a recap: throughout the campaign, rather than donate to water projects, I decided to donate to the organization. They offer super fabulous charity: water swag that goes to support things like salaries, office space, post-its, etc. And I’ve been giving away that swag to folks who wrote water stories throughout the campaign.
So, drumroll please…
The June winner is
She’s winning this super fabulous water bottle:
And, oh yeah, there’s a grand prize, ’cause I FEEL LIKE IT, WHAT.
And the winner of this fabulous necklace (or the cuff links! Whichever) is…
I’ll be emailing both of you soon-ish.
In fact, PS, apologies to everyone. My inbox is a giant mess right now (I have guests! Early Fourth of July party). If you’re waiting on an email from me, I promise it’s coming! Thank you so much for your patience.
Really, thank you to everyone. Y’all are the best community of giving not-really-strangers a writer could ask for.
