Catching up

September 10, 2008 at 6:30 pm

I hope you are all watching the thermometer on our sidebar. We’ve been getting regular updates on our donation totals from CFF and we are putting the new total into the thermometer as soon as we get them. So far the totals have been rising daily. Let’s keep that up.

Also check out the Teams page where we are posting the team donation totals when we get them as well. Please feel free to cheer on your favorite team by writing comments on the Teams page. I also have links to most of the Teams websites and blogs as well as links to their Unleash Your Story donation page.

Those words written and pages read reports are coming more slowly because we are tallying then manually (and many participants have been slow to report). We will try to get you some information as soon as we can and update are totals thermometers in the sidebar as well.

I hope you are all having some fun and challenging yourself and your friends to write more and read more for this great cause. Every dollar we raise does make a difference in the lives of people with CF. Watch this space tomorrow for a story from Colleen Gleason about life with her 10-year-old son with CF. And keep watching here for more words about CFF, writing, reading and prizes.
