The Winner Is...

MaryK! Mary has politely declined the prize, so I'm adding $4 to the pot. I will donate one dollar per comment, or $28 plus the extra $4 -- so I will donate $32 to Pennies for Peace! Our students will appreciate the extra money for their collection!

Thank you so much for your kind comments and your kudos for my 700th post! I'm glad to have so many of you pitching in and your willingness to help a good cause. If you have not read the book about Greg Mortenson and his work building schools, please do. It's called Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace, One School At A Time. He also wrote a version of the same story for children. And he has another book called Stones Into Schools.

It's a great cause that will do so much more toward achieving peace than war will ever do. Thanks again for visiting and for your help!!!
