It's been amazing to watch the donations pour in for the ONEder Fund. Not that I've been checking the link every few hours and refreshing the page over and over just to watch the total change every time. Cuz that would just be crazy! But I've heard about some people who have been doing just that. The original goal of 15K was reached in record time, less than 24 hours. The goal was then doubled to 30K, then 47K and now 63K. Last time I checked the donations totaled more than $60,000. Incredible! Such an outpouring of love from all around the world.
We've been driving all day today. Vacation with the big kids. I clicked on Enjoying the Small Things to check the total and was left speechless. No words can do this justice. Watch it for yourself and you'll know exactly what I am talking about.
I've watched this video over and over. Convincing myself that this time I'm not going to get emotional but everytime I lose it when the video gets close to the end and Kelle gives a litttle shout out to Morgan. "A world that celebrates . . . Morgan." It's over. No matter how many times I watch it. I love everything about this video. It's time we learn to not just tolerate differences but celebrate those differences. Imagine a world that celebrates every individual!
Please take the time to watch this video and help make a difference for the 400,000 individuals living with Down syndrome in the United States. And be sure to look for Morgan doing a puppet show!(1:08)
