Challenge Update

Thanks to everyone's donations, two of our three educational proposals have been fully funded!!!!! THANK YOU ALL! YOU ROCK!

The one remaining proposal, Myself and Others, is already 65% funded, with only $487 needed to complete funding.

So, if we can only get $243.50 donated to Myself and Others, then InstantYang will graciously match the remainder. Then, all three of our educational proposals will be complete! (Thank you InstantYang for picking up the dollar-for-dollar match through July 4!!)

Don't worry, this is not the end of the RiceDaddies Empowerment in Diversity Challenge. Once all of our proposals are fully funded, you will still be able to donate to your heart's content. I have a list of proposals in the pipeline which will be activated once the current ones are fully funded.

Just $178 to GO!!!! Wow, guys, this is truly the power of community...I'm really impressed. And I'm absolutely delighted to be opening my checkbook for the remainder.

This is awesome! I'm so proud of everybody.

But don't forget that this is a longterm commitment on our part! I've been browsing through the other projects currently asking for funding on Donors Choose, and there are some really cool things that teachers are doing out there.

That's right! There are some enlightened teachers out there. Makes me want to develop a RiceDaddies Teacher of the year award. But I'm getting ahead of myself."< / seed>"

We recognize the urgent need for innovative educational programs that empower our children by encouraging them to be who they truly are. And we need it in all of our communities. So, if you'd like to have the RiceDaddies Challenge feature an educational proposal in your neighborhood, let your local teachers know that there's an entire community right here at RiceDaddies ready to provide support in obtaining funding.
