100% for 100 Shows
As you may have heard on this week's podcast, The WDW Radio Show is closing in on its 100th episode! :mousetune
Instead of making this a personal celebration, Lou has asked all his listeners to do something special: Help the Dream Team Project reach 100% of its current fundraising goal.
The Dream Team Project has done an incredible job of raising money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America - over $41,000 to date. We've raised the bar several times on our Firstgiving page, and our current goal is $45,000.
There are 6 more episodes before #100, and even though we know this is a difficult economy and the holiday season, we're asking for your help to make the wishes of seriously ill children come true.
Even if you can only give $1.00, it will make a difference. If you can give more, that's even better, but it is everybody working as a team that lets The Dream Team Project make magic happen.
Please visit The Dream Team Project's firstgiving.com page at Firstgiving - DisneyWorldTrivia.com Dream Team Project - Make-A-Wish Foundation of America to make a secure donation, and help us reach 100% by the 100th show.
There are just a few days left before show #100. We're at 98% - close, but not there yet!
Many, many thanks to the many people who have already made a donation!!
Get your laces tied, Lori. I got my pledge in. (I like waiting till the last minute to build the suspense.)
I hope there are more of you last minute suspense-lovers out there!

the total OVER the $45,000.00 !!!
*** what a wonderful project ***
Need a tissue, LOU?
Thank you Lori and everyone who donated! :hurray:
Lou and family and I and my family were actually out to dinner together when both our phones went off at the same time - text messages telling us to look at the firstgiving site.
Let me tell you, we were never happier to have our meal interrupted by the phone :) Yes, we both needed tissues, and a glass was raised to everyone who helped make this come true. :cheers2:
Then we had to stop our kids from stabbing each other with chopsticks :sw1:
Thank you all for helping make Wishes come true!
yeah good job Lori

That's why The Dream TEAM Project is such a perfect name for this group!
Don't worry, we'll be raising the bar again soon ;) There's no shortage of wishes out there.
Wow... what can I say??
YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you all SO very much from the bottom of my heart. What you have all done means so much to me, but more importantly, will make a real difference in the lives of children and their families NOW!
From Pat, Lori, Tracy, April, Val, and all the volunteers (too many to mention here, but I love you all!!), everyone who donated, who gave to the auction in so many ways, and who have just supported our efforts in so many ways, I am forever grateful to you.
And as Pat said, we are all part of this Dream Team, and you should all be extremely proud of what YOU have done!!!!
I keep hoping that I'll have more money coming in for the 1/2.
