We did it!

I always knew we would. But I didn't expect to achieve our goal within 24 hours! I should have known better, your generosity has always been inspiring.

I've emailed Faezeh to let her know that she has the money she needs to apply for her visa and to confirm her place in the university.

We have set her on the path to making her dream come true. Thank you to everyone who helped make that happen, whether by contributing or by spreading the word.

If you'd like to keep up with Faezeh's progress you can expect to see updates here at this blog. If you want to be sure you don't miss anything then you can leave a comment here with your email address and I will add you to the "Follow Faezeh's dream progress" mailing list.

Thank you all again. You've exceeded even this eternal optimist's expectations!
