Fifty for Fifty Update

Fred and I launched the Fifty for Fifty campaign to raise $50K for classrooms through Donors Choose on August 1st. 

I am beyond thankful for all the people who have donated to this campaign.  As we say in the Wilson family "you done good".  To give back to education is the key to our next generation.  Supporting teachers through the classroom is empowering for communities and children. 

We have raised over $40K and are almost at our goal. 

Fred and I are going to have a meet-up this November in NYC and everyone who donated will be invited to attend. 

If you haven't joined the campaign yet, please do.
