The entire Last Word staff has been so encouraged by your outpouring of support for the K.I.N.D. fund, Kids In Need Of Desks. With your help, the joint MSNBC-UNICEF program has been able to make a significant impact on the lives of school kids in Malawi.
We're rewriting their quality of education through your generous donations. As of today, we have currently raised $2,874,762. Thank you so much for your charitable giving this holiday season, especially in such a tough economy.
People have been contributing not only through their pocketbooks, but also through the power of the Internet. We were blown away by a video made by Evan Puschak for Youtube's Project For Awesome. The clip has nearly 190,000 views and more than 10,500 comments. And on Twitter, we noticed the newly activated @Desk4Malawi account. One tweet reads, "we have donated a desk we wished we can do more. We don't have the $$$ but we have the computer to help spread the word!" Thanks for your help.
