good news, etc.
Just wanted to let you know that although I've been absent most of the day, I have been updating the Good News, part V thread.
I'm trying to catch up on my email, I have a zillion mails from people who want to help out with the school supplies - I have Trish organizing things in Houston, please email me contact info if you want to help out there. I am in serious need of help in Baton Rouge, I have only Dave there so far. And thanks to everyone who put money in the PayPal, and I'll mention it again for those who are emailing asking how to donate school supplies if they aren't in my area:
My Paypal button is on the left sidebar. If you donate, I will use the money to purchase school supplies to put on the truck. Simple as that. You have to trust a complete stranger with your money, yes - but I think a lot of readers will vouch for me, I've done things like this before.
Thank you a million times to everyone who has sent good news links, volunteered to help out with the school thing or have actually gone there and helped out, like Tari. Like I said to her in email today, it may not be my place to thank you, but someone should, so I will. We will.
I notice a LOT of Long Island visitors in my referrals. If any of you want to come help load up the truck when we are ready, please email me, micheleREMOVETHIS.catalanoATgmail.com.
Everyone else, please use that address, too, if you need to contact me. I forget to check the other address sometimes.
Bloggers, if you could link to this, that would be great - the more people that know about it, the more possible contacts in both cities I'm likely to make, the more donations for supplies I'll get, etc.
Just heard from someone in Orlando is who coordinating a school supply drive there - I'm putting her in contact with my Houston contact. This is wonderful!
Thanks to Dave, my Baton Rouge contact, for those images.
