Donors Choose Challenge Update

I just got this note from the teacher of the first project we funded.

Dear Jessica,

Thank you so much for your generous donation. Your gift will allow our students to continue improving their knitting skills. They will be so excited to see your gift of yarn and book sets with needles. My students rely on my knitting program to provide them with what they need to complete their projects since they cannot afford yarn stores on their own. It is so amazing that I will be able to share these materials with them soon. You have made a group of knitters very happy today. Thank you.

You may have noticed that there are now many additional fiber arts projects in the challenge since we already fully funded the original project. We have raised $651 so far. We still have until the end of the month. It's not too late to give.
