Awesome Nation!

The Tomato Nation Fall Challenge wrapped up last night - the $100k goal was not only met, but exceeded! A total of $111,352 was raised to help schoolchildren all over the USA through projects listed at DonorsChoose.org. Way to go, everyone! As one person posted, "Times might be tough, but Tomato Nation is tougher."


Funds raised: $111,352
Donors participating: 1162
Children reached: 19,577

Of course this also means that we will once again get to see Sars publicly humiliate herself in a tomato costume. This year she has pledged to take the train - in costume - from NY to Washington, DC, where I'm sure she'll perform another hilarious tomato dance. You don't want to miss it!

Last year's dance at Rockefeller Plaza:

About Me

TreeFeathers
Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
