We intended to update you sooner, because we certainly needed to say, "THANK YOU!"  Your response has been simply amazing. We are working diligently to ensure that all of the time, money and energy being put into this project by our donors and volunteers is making a BIG difference in the lives of Hurricane Harvey victims.   So, thank you ALL!  And a BIG shout out to our volunteers in Hawaii, Oregon and California... The Dream Team!  Your letters,  emails and fundraising efforts have been super effective!  Finally, a BIG shout out to Lee Cataluna, columnist and reporter at the Star Advertiser.  Your recent story generated some of the most ENCOURAGING mail that we've ever received.  Some came from teachers who reminded us that we are on the right track and to keep on "dreaming."  One envelope, marked "HE DID TOO," reminded us of a famous "Dreamer," John F. Kennedy, who said:

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

Or, as we like to say: Thank you for caring enough to not just "dream of a better world," but to go out and help make it happen.
