I am beyond exhausted so this will be the short one.
But I am also beyond thrilled and beyond touched and beyond awed by what I saw today. The incredible outpouring of support and love, friendship and bravery, kindness and generosity left me breathless. I am so honored to have been able to bring this event to so many people and I am so moved by all those who have embraced it with such enthusiasm.
As of this moment, counting the $101,116 we’ve raised online and the $2,450 check we expect from the lunchroom competitions at Roxboro Middle School, and the Bake Sale and American Girl Doll proceeds, and the cash and checks turned in today, we should (at this moment in time) have raised $108,257.
Wow. Just wow.
My local readers: Please promise me that tomorrow, wherever you go about town, if you see a bald man, woman, boy or girl, you stop and tell them good job. Good job, my bald friends, good good job.
