Wow, thank you for the upsurge of support!
I'm so uplifted by the generous gifts and beautiful words of encouragement that have been pouring in! I'm truly happy to report we're almost 70% funded! That's a dramatic turnaround from our slow start.
We have nine days to raise $3000. I'm confident we can do it.
You can help by writing an email to a good friend, saying why you support New Village.
Love and big thanks!!
