I spent most of yesterday in Lawrence, where my son Dallas will attend the University of Kansas this fall. While he was off doing his own thing, I used the time to visit with a handful of on-campus organizations that I thought would be supportive of our cause — including the university's Ecumenical Christian Ministry, Multicultural Resource Center and Spectrum KU.
So imagine how encouraged I was when our publicist shared this good news on Good Friday: With about a month to go, we've reached 10 percent of our fundraising goal.
Thanks for the support and please, if you have a chance to share what we're doing through social media or word of mouth, take advantage of it. Those things are really helping us.
