***UPDATE – WE’RE ACKNOWLEDGED IN THE PROJECT OF THE DAY*** Message from DonorsChoose.org: The staff of DonorsChoose.org walked into their Monday morning surprised and thrilled at the update on the Adam Lambert Fan Group leaderboard—over $30,000! Our staff was amazed at how much money all of you raised over the weekend and we are all so grateful! However our office manager was not surprised. As a rabid Adam fan, she knew you guys would rock it! Keep up the great work! We can’t wait to see what kind of national press will be coming our way; http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/DonorschooseOrg-1034734.html
Project of the day: KARMA, the Glambs International Fan Club and several other groups have given to this project: Music On the Inside Out. This project only has 7 days left to get funded with more than $10,000 needed. It would be AMAZING to see this 5th classroom in Kent, Washington (where 65% of the children are eligible for free and reduced lunch based on poverty level) participate in a school band! In the teacher’s words: “I would like to see students at the Fifth Grade level have the opportunity to try a band instrument during the school day without the financial restrictions of State, and Local budgets. My students need 42 band instruments, including bells, trombones, flutes, trumpets, and clarinets.” So what do you think groups? Think we can do it? Go to your group’s page (to make sure they get credit ?) and search for this project and donate to it!
Quote of the day: Carole from Wilmington, DE: “I gave to this project because I believe the voice of music is one of the key elements of an emotionally well-rounded life, starting even before birth and extending throughout one’s lifetime. There is nothing in life that touches the heart and impacts the total being more than the gift of music. If we didn’t know that before, Adam Lambert has taught us so in spades. He has chosen a magnificent charity. Thank you, Adam, for the way you have touched and continue to touch us all.”
Glambs International has raised nearly $1,700 as of this writing, with 41 donors, and we’re currently sitting in 5th place on the leader board. Visit our Glambs Donor Page to see the participating school projects and to donate.
If you haven’t yet donated, please consider doing so, even if it’s a small amount. Any amount is welcome. Many thanks from Adam, the Kids, and from Glambs International!!!
