You will not believe what happened on Christmas Day! There was an envelope on the tree for me and I opened it and it said that I had finished raising all of the money for the well! I was so happy because I had written at school that all I wanted to give for Christmas was a well and then my dream came true. I can't believe it! I'm so thankful for everyone who gave money to the well. This is so amazing. My mom said that over 250 people will have clean water now because of everyone who gave to the well.
I will let everyone know when I find out where our well is going to be. I can't wait.
Thank you to Emma (my best friend in Tennessee), the McMahans, the Moores, Eric, the McElveens, Mrs. O'Malley, the Moreaus, the Hayashis, the McMinns, the Coxs, the Lukeis, the Thrashes, the Pahules, Brady, the Bernhardts, the Pomeroys, and the Fujiwaras.
Guess what? This is even more incredible. We did not even use the money we raised eating rice and beans to finish the well. So, I have very exciting news. All of the kids who ate rice and beans are going to start raising money for a new well! We are all going to give the money we saved from eating rice and beans to start off the new well. As soon as we set up the website for the new well, I will tell you about it. I love raising money for wells!
