Kids enjoying their new desks post-K.I.N.D. delivery in Malawi.
Lawrence is not sitting at the anchor chair tonight, but he's hard at work in Malawi, checking in on schools via our K.I.N.D. fund. Today, he shared this Twitpic along with a special note to all Last Word viewers, "Here r same kids sitting at desks for 1st time in their lives thanks to u + #KIND."
Here's the dramatic before pic. Can you believe it? We're really starting to see signs of change in classrooms. We've already delivered over 12,000 desks to 50 schools and raised more than $2.3 million. And that's thanks to your donations, large and small. Seriously, every little penny adds up.
If you would like to help us deliver more desks in Malawi, you can donate on our website LastWordDesks.msnbc.com or call the UNICEF hotline, 1-800-FOR-KIDS.
We'll continue to pass along updates from Lawrence throughout the week.
