Thank You!!!

Dear Supporters of If Walls Could Talk,

Thanks to your generosity of resources, energy and networks, If Walls Could Talk reached its fundraising goal this morning!!! I cannot begin to express the gratitude I feel to this incredible community of backers and believers for making this project a reality. 

As we move now to specific programming and project details, I will continue to post updates on the project that you have all made happen. Any funds raised over the goal will go towards using even higher quality/longer lasting materials and will also allow us the option to scaffold a larger wall in East Harlem. I will also post information about the mural dedications and hope that perhaps you can join us for the dedication in East Harlem.

I am eternally grateful for your support and enthusiasm for this project. Now I cannot wait to get started! I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2012 and thank you so, so much for making this idea become a reality.
