Remember this? How we went to Rwanda and listened to the hunger and all of us together had this goal of each of us giving together to raise $50,000 in just over a week, to be matched by a generous donor for a donation of $100,000?

Well, don’t you know it: #SmallTogetherIsTheNewBig — all of every single one of us just doing our SMALL thing TOGETHER? Raised way over $50,000 in a week — and I have no words to thank every. single. one. of. you. Such people you are, #GenEsthers — for such a time as NOW. He is rising us up together, the #EstherGeneration — I think you are all are just getting started!
