While waiting…

for these pages to print…

Is it crazy
to go for this?

2500 donations…that means just about 250 more donations in 2 hours…one + one + one

IT IS CRAZY. And that is what is so cool.

Just putting it out there…naming it…dreaming it…

    Not crazy at all! Look at all that’s happened so far. You’ve inspired this spirit of giving among so many of us. We’ve passed it on to others. It’s such a good feeling, very contagious. And to be part of this great big community, doing something great together. Well, anything is possible and I bet we make it to 2,500 no problem. :)

    It’s not crazy Ali to got for the $50000. It is achievable. Just look at what you (as one person)have been able to do. You have managed to inspire so many people from across the globe to donate to Austism speaks Inc. Why? Because people feel a connection with you through your work as a scrapbooker. You are just like many of us. A mother, a wife, a daughter, a friend, a colleague, a person. And also because scrapbookers ROCK!!!! No matter where we come from.
