UPDATE (September 18, 2009): More is forthcoming about the outcome of this campaign.
What a difference a day makes. The non-profit is going through the California legal gauntlet, but I have had it expedited. I was only able to do that because of the nice little surge in donations due to promotion of the cause by several sites. (No worries. I’m keeping a list of them as I see them in my referrers log and plan to give them their props.)
At present the haul is over
$1,200 $2200 and that’s not counting the initial $500+ laid out to incorporate the non-profit! I’ve spent the morning writing ‘thank you’ notes. You all are wonderful.
I have a hidden helper who is assisting me with the website. I had said that it would be a blog but it won’t be—though it will certainly have a blog. One thing necessary for this endeavor to be successful: keeping an eye on what’s happening in Kenya so that will be a part of the site as well. I do have some experience in the area, as well as a contact or two.
Keep it going!
