41Day Wrap Up

I've been speechless about this for a while but, my goodness, 41Day was the best gift for so many reasons. It's been difficult to find the words to describe just how thankful we are for your participation in this movement. I hope you are sitting down because we raised $14,112 and funded 56,448 meals!! We also have 73 students who are fully funded for one year! That is just insane. That's world changing!

It is our whole heart at No.41 to prove how simple it truly is to change the world, for one. And last week we, YOU, did just that. As $2 and $3 donations poured in, from across the globe, (and $20 and $100, some of you are big eaters) we saw how quickly a little turns into a whole lot. Thank you is not enough, but a big, fat THANK YOU will have to suffice for now.

So, what's next? Well, we almost have term 2 of 3 fully funded, as far as food goes, and we have 73 students funded for a full year, but we are still looking for about 1,100 one-year sponsorships for $60, that's just $5 a month!! Would you be willing to share the cost of an average lunch, once a month, with a student? We are going to get these kids sponsored THIS month, then we can all go back to the regularly scheduled programming. 

What does that look like? First, you can share this post and our story with your friends. You all blew up social media last week and I got so many messages from your friends telling me how they heard about what we were doing.

You can host a trunk show. Next time you're hanging with your pals, tell them what we're doing, and we'll make sure you have all the info you need to do it.
You can sponsor a student. Or two. It's $60 one-time, or just $5 a month for a hot, healthy meal, every day, at school.
You can shop the shop. We have some fun, new items and each one has the number of meals it feeds attached to it.

We could not be more thankful for all you've done. This isn't possible without you. You are a world changer. You have changed our whole world. Have a great week!
