A thank you from Doctors Without Borders

I was so touched today to receive a handwritten thank you note from the Hearts for Haiti contact at MSF and want to share it here since it is really for everyone who volunteered, donated, supported, promoted, and otherwise helped our project become such a great success.

The card reads, "Dear Victoria, On behalf of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), I want to thank you for all your generous work fundraising to support our organization. We are so honored you selected MSF as the beneficiary. As requested at the beginning all donations have been directed towards our operations treating the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Your efforts are helping us to respond to the emergency in Haiti by providing urgently needed medical care and humanitarian aid to thousands of vulnerable people. Please extend our gratitude to all those involved. Thank you for getting involved and for helping to make a difference. Kind Regards, Charlie Kunzer"

It's a simple gesture but somehow it really brought everything home for me. We really did do something monumental!

Fourth and final payment sent - $7,305.64

I'm so honored to finally be sending this fourth and final check to Doctors Without Borders. This experience. The shop closed in September and I just had the PayPal reserve lifted and the money transferred to the credit union account so at long last the rest of the money is on its way! Another $7,300--amazing!
