UNICEF has been flooded with all the online contributions that poured in over the Christmas weekend for K.I.N.D., Kids In Need of Desks. The total we have raised this holiday season is now $1,469,639. And the total we've raised since beginning the program last year is $3,883,638 — a jump of more than $350,000 in the past 24 hours!
If you count the grand total, that's enough to build and deliver nearly $81,000 desks to classrooms in Malawi where most students and teachers have never seen a desk. We're thrilled and very gracious for your continued support.
We’re so close to the $4 million mark. Can any one of you out there in Last Word blogland help us get there? For $48, you can lift two children off the floor and you can outfit a full classroom with a $720 donation. No dollar amount is too large or small. Visit our website lastworddesks.msnbc.com or call 1-800-FOR-KIDS to make a donation.
