We Won $50,000 for The Sharing Foundation, Thanks to You!

Americas_giving_challenge The final results are in and I'm so thrilled to report that we won America's Giving Challenge, raising a combined total of over $90,000 to support The Sharing Foundation! This was an incredible weeks-long effort and I want to thank all of you who donated to the cause and boosted us to the top.

The person who deserves the most credit and thanks in all of this is Beth Kanter, who was tireless in both her on and off-line efforts to get the word out about the campaign while at the same time blogging her experience so that others could learn about the ins and outs of running this kind of online fundraising effort. Go here to check out all of Beth's posts about the process and to congratulate her on how her hard work paid off. 

Thanks again to everyone--we couldn't have done it without you!
