Christopher Confero and I were chatting via Twitter tonight and came up with a BIG idea :: to pull together as the charter class of Making Things Happen and send one person to another MTH2010 with a "MTH FIRST CLASS SCHOLARSHIP." So many of us (myself included) were so fortunate to be chosen as scholarship recipients. That meant the world to me. Perhaps we can make that difference for someone else.
So in the spirit of paying it forward, we'd like to ask each of you to contribute to the MTH First Class Scholarship fund using the "Donate" button below. Your contribution will go to a PayPal account and the lump sum will be sent to Lara Casey to award to the recipient of her choice. I'll keep updating the amount so that we all know how much has been raised to date. UPDATE: We've had many contributions from outside the first class of MTH - if you were not part of the first class, but would like to help us MAKE BIG THINGS HAPPEN for another pro, please feel free to make a contribution below!
If you have any questions - post them here. Let's MAKE THIS HAPPEN for another deserving pro! Thank you all for your support! UPDATE: Read Lara Casey's Making Things Happen Vol 2 post for more details on MTH2010 and the MTH First Class Scholarship selection process. Contribution opporutnity will close Thursday at midnight. Application process will close Friday at midnight. Lara will announce the winner on Monday, January 11!
GOAL :: $700
RAISED :: $710!
Thank you, sincerely - on behalf of the MTH2010 Watercolor Class - to all 17 donors who contributed to this scholarship! And thank you to all our Twitter friends who passed this around and helped MAKE THIS HAPPEN! So excited for the pro this will change.
