Goin' All The Way, Day 7: The slow dance
Put your heads on my shoulder: $24,331 at this writing, with almost nineteen thousand students reached and 172 projects completed! Almost halfway there: remember, 50K gets you a prom.
I had a whole thing here about shuffling along to "Forever Young," filled with perspectiveless yearning to do with our own tiny tragedies; that's how we rolled in the privileged suburbs with standard non-lethal weather. But that's not quite the song I want this morning, after lethal weather took out after Moore, OK yesterday. If there's anyone you love who doesn't know it, speak up; you just don't know what's going to happen.
Then get on the floor with some Oklahoma projects today. Hat tip to Charmaine for getting me started with a couple of links, and please feel free to send more, or donate to the steampunk reading club; Ms. Regan's rad scientists; a meteorology project in Arkansas; or Play-Doh and wiggly eyes (ends this week!).
This is what this is; this is what you do. It's not too big, and you can help. Please email OK/weather project suggestions — and your donation receipts! — to me at bunting at tomatonation dot com.
Prizes: copies of Back to the Future, Peggy Sue Got Married, or Romy & Michele's High-School Reunion (best dance sequence ever; high ten, Alan Cumming) for five (5) winners — and, if we can hit 28K by 5 PM ET, a colorful sur-prize.
