Thank You! Thank You! You made it happen!

Dear Nerdy Supporter,

This is just a quick update to let you know that, thanks to you, iNERDE had its most successful single day of fundraising, raising over $1600 yesterday, enabling us to fully fund all scholarships for our two public schools, Dianquina Coulibaly and Badalabougou.

Giving the opportunity to poor kids to participate in our program was, for me personally, extremely important. While I have never known poverty such as it exists in Mali, my father was a simple worker, a deliveryman, and I know what a difficult road it is to go from such a humble background to a higher education and a professional career. The public schools I attended in the US were well-equipped and more than able to give me all the help I needed. That isn't the case in Mali, but the Malian kids do have incredibly strong family support and dedicated educators that do the very best they can. It is such an honor for me to be able to help them ... I know you feel the same way.

We'll send another report once the camp gets started and let you how ... your kids ... are doing.

With Gratitude,

Michael Leventhal
