A thank you, taking an online hiatus, and wrapping up the run


I am going to make this quick.  First, I want to thank you all so much for your support of this fundraiser.  In brief, there were 216 of you from 38 different states and two countries.  Together we raised $3,391.17 for Little Flower Projects.  All of the paypal money has been sent to China Little Flower and the checks will be sent tomorrow.

And I feel blessed beyond measure.  The emails and comments, I have gotten leading up to yesterday were inspiring because so many of you have inspirational stories.  YOU ALL made this fundraiser a success. It would have been nothing without each and every one of you!  You made it go. You spread the word and for that I am grateful.

And now, I get such a big smile when I see all your pictures from your runs.  I love it.

I promise you will get a more, well thought out thank you email from me, but please give me a few days. The run has taken a lot of time the last few weeks, compounded by the fact that my husband has been gone for work for most of this month and will not be back for another week. All of that is simply to say, I need a break so I am taking an online hiatus. Please keep on posting your pictures from the run and link your blog posts as wellI will be back by the end of the week.

Several people have messaged me that they have not done their run yet or have not be able to post their pictures yet. Since you get another entry to the giveaway for posting a blog post or posting your picture to the run's Facebook page, I am extending the giveaway until Saturday, October 27th.

I will check in on the run's facebook page periodically, and will be checking my email, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you so much and God Bless!
Katie
