Western New York: You. Are. Awesome.

On June 4, we established a fundraising effort called "Pennies from Heaven" to help collect money for the victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes.

They laughed at me at first...saying no one would want to be bothered with collecting spare change for people 2,500 miles away.

I'm happy to say we proved them wrong, Buffalo...because the grand total is in, and it was $8,500.11!!!

I'm beaming with pride and grinning ear-to-ear at your generosity. Thank you so very much for coming to the need of others. Karma is alive and well! :)

In the coming weeks, we'll be issuing a check via KeyBank of WNY to the Red Cross to be  routed to Oklahoma. We'll keep you posted!
