Official totals for the Spare a Rose, Save a Child campaign came in at $27,265.17, from 832 donations. Below is a second letter from Dr. Graham Ogle, thanking our community for our participation:
I love how community efforts gave rise to a beautiful message from the DOC to our friends, globally. And I also love how folks here at home spared a rose and made this campaign part of their personal love story.
Like Matthew, who spared a dozen roses for his PWD love Sarah …
… only to find that she had done the same for him.
Thanks to everyone for their support, participation, and passion for this effort. I’m already excited to see what we can do next year!
