It's April first, and you know what that means - April Fool's Day! But did you also know that it's International Fun at Work Day? Yeah, because evidently work is not always fun. And being that it falls on a weekend this year, if you ARE working then you are definitely not having fun. Here's an idea though - how 'bout a little tatting. Apparently April 1st is also International Tatting Day. It's okay, I had to look it up too. At first I thought I was going to be getting a tattoo. I obviously need to broaden my horizons!
Anyway, none of this really has much to do with anything. Indeed, the reason I sat down to write this email (actually I'm lying down, I do not lie on April 1st) was to share some great news with you. We have received not one, but TWO generous offers from two very enthusiastic supporters. Both are matching challenges for the month of April - one for $1,000 and one for $2,000. That means that if we raise $1,000 it will be matched, and if we raise another $2,000 it will also be matched (or vise-versa).
$3,000 becomes $6,000!
But we've got to hit the mark first.
Sure, I've been taken for a fool once or twice, but I'd be a REAL fool if I didn't accept this challenge. And I know that you're no fool either. No, I do not send emails to fools. We are both wise enough to realize the value here and the potential effect on the next student we sponsor. So let's do this. We have the power to create change, and when we all come together the effects multiply that much quicker. This will make a huge difference for our next student, so we can't allow this opportunity to pass us by. Donate now and help us hit our target! http://africastomorrow.org/
Have fun with your April Fool's jokes, have fun at work, and have fun tatting. You can look forward to tomorrow also because it's National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day. What a great way to start the week.
