We are so excited to have received the following email from an educator we were able to help in Staunton, VA. I mean, who wouldn’t want to dunk their teacher?!?
“Hey Adam! I’m sorry I haven’t gotten back to you sooner, but the kids just walked out the door for summer so I have a few minutes to spare – finally! Splash for Cash was a HUGE success!!! Many of the students said that it was their favorite activity of the whole year and the staff loved it, too. My husband ran the dunk tank all afternoon and had a great time, and the weather was perfect (even though we had a threat of possible rain). The best news is………you will be receiving checks totaling $1,057.26! I’m overwhelmed by the amount that we raised – I would never have thought that it would be that much. I will get the checks in the mail to you next week. And now…I have attached some of the over 200 pictures that were taken that day:) I am so proud to be able to make this donation to the Foundation!”
At no point did we ever expect to receive so much in return from doing what we do. It just goes to show the special, unique heart of educators everywhere—it takes a special person to do what they do. Thank you Mrs. Smith—we are beyond humbled! Thank you to everyone who played a part in making this happen and the joy that it has brought to our day! Now for a picture… 🙂
