My application was accepted!
I was notified this morning that an application that I filled out was chosen and that I will be honored with the donation of 100 Spanish books to the school in Guatemala where we will be building the library next summer!
I knew it was a long shot, and I never thought they’d pick me. But, my motivation is high and I’d like to think that the sincerity with which I approached the request helped them choose in my favor.
I originally set a goal of collecting 300 books (either by donation or fundraising) and since I have already collected 54, and was just promised 100, I’m more than half way to my goal with several months left to go! Time to up the goal to 500! Hooray!
