We Won $25,000 dollars, thanks to all of you!


The online voting contest with Chase Community Giving was a real nail biter. JLK started out strong then we steadily dropped, held and then dived during the last hour of voting. I was frantically emailing, texting, instant messaging, and blogging. We ended up at #81 out of 100. The last 30 or so foundations were neck and neck. Our sister foundation Team Sanfilippo won $25,000 as well. Unfortunatley Ben's Dream and Will Luthcke SF foundations didn't make the top 100. My good friends Hannah's Hope won $25,000, but friends with the ISMRD foundation fell out of the top 100 at the last minute too.

Here we go again!

Did everyone read Patty's blog? Click the bold part if you didn't. If only I could have Patty's ability in writing! Patty is my neighbor (we live in Brooklyn, we have lots of neighbors!) However Patty is an exceptional Mom and neighbor, her sons attend Jonah's school. Patty also just so happens to write for Parenting magazine. Again I live in Brooklyn, we have lots of journalists/writers here (lucky for JJB!)
