I posted this morning about #teampatrick and how 70 watches would put Patrick through an intensive leadership program in Rwanda. Then I went to have lunch at my daughters’ elementary school. I tweeted a second time when I got home that we were going to close out the #teampatrick roster in ten minutes and then after that, I called Manny to see if we had hit our goal of 70. We did.
In 59 minutes.
You guys are awesome!
In less than an hour we hit our goal. And because I wasn’t available to announce it, we actually kept going. We ended up with 148 watches, which means we just formed #teammorri too! This is Morri Mpenzi. He’s 16 and will be going through the program too because of your immense generosity.
We’ll be doing fun stuff like this in the future with Hello Somebody, and there are some wild ideas we’re tossing around right now. Whenever we do this kind of quick, unexpected project though, my friends on the West Coast always say, “Hey thanks for starting/finishing the project before I’d even woken up in my time zone you punk.” Fair enough.
If you want to add a third team to the SCL roster and still get involved, here’s the link to the rest of the 98 kids who are available for this program. (You can read about what we did in this post).
For now though, let me just say thank you!
I know the word “community” gets overused sometimes, but I love being part of the Stuff Christians Like community. I am constantly amazed at what God can do with friends that get together on a blog and Twitter.
