Wow, with everyone’s help, we’ve reached our $6,000 goal– amazing! We’re absolutely blown away by so many people’s generosity, and we’d like to give you all a MASSIVE thank you! Thanks to your contributions, we’ve been able to add seven extra campers — on top of who we’d planned for when we drew up our initial budget — to this year’s trip!
Now that we’ve reached our goal, additional contributions will get us closer to our total trip budget, which is $10,000. We still need significant help to cover the rest of these costs, especially since we’ve added more kids to this year’s trip. Please visit our IndieGoGo fundraising page to contribute what you can and continue to help us spread word about the hike– every dollar makes a huge difference! For more information on the trip, check out our Washington II Washington site or the fundraising page. HUUUUUGE thanks again!
FOUND by LB in a Poundstretcher store, Hertford, England
Found this on the floor of the shop where I work last week, folded with only the corner that reads “£70 tips missing” visible. It appears to be two sides worth of reasons why somebody is about to get fired, (definitely a different workplace to mine by the practices described – one of the nearby pubs?)
FOUND by Deanna in the Acton Public Library, Old Saybrook, Connecticut
I found this on page 25 of The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest. From the inferred maturity of the writer, I assume that the mom was the reader of the book. My favorite part is the “Answer here” line on the left side of the page.
Love (or friendship) note left beneath my windshield wiper; my name’s not Maria but my license plate frame says “I’m a librarian and I will shush your ass.” Maria must be pretty awesome since the author says there should be “1 million more of her.” On the other hand, the author wasn’t sure if Maria is a librarian or not, so might not know Maria very well at all. I am a librarian at a local university and was parked in the student lot, so I presume this is from a student, but there are no librarians named Maria on campus. I hope Maria learns someday how highly this author, and presumably others, think of her.
I found this on the ground next to my garage. When I first found it, the “punched-out” part was still hanging by a thread, and was folded to the back of the photo, so you could flip it over and just see a photo on an eye next to a hole.
On August 1st, FOUND editors Davy Rothbart and James Molenda will be taking 24 inner-city kids to Monongahela National Forest for a week of adventure, and we need your help to make it happen! Check out our IndieGoGo fundraising page, or read below! Continue reading →
