So you know how I told you that 25% of all sales from my new Make Over Your Mornings course yesterday would be donated to South Africa? And you know how my big goal was to raise $14,000 so we could fully fund a two-classroom facility and two Enviro-Loo toilets at the Reagoboka Centre (read more about our visit there here)?
Well, guess what?!?!
Thanks to each and every one of you who purchased and donated, we raised $15,127 yesterday!!!
I got the privilege of sharing this amazing news with our friends in South Africa today and it was such a humbling and goose-bump-producing moment.

You all… You amaze me. You bless me. You humble me. And you are hands down some of the greatest gifts God has given me.
Thank you for showing up here each week. For reading. For commenting. For emailing in. For spreading the word about this blog.
And most importantly, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of something that is so much bigger than any of us could do on our own. It thrills my heart beyond words.
I haven’t publicly shared this yet, but our whole family is planning to head to South Africa in October and we cannot wait to get to show you the progress that’s been made as a direct result of your kindness, support, and generosity. I can’t WAIT!

A few important notes:
1. Did you have any trouble with your order? If you had any trouble downloading your course or didn’t get a followup email or have emailed in and haven’t heard back, please do us a favor and submit a ticket here.
We are almost all caught up on emails as of now and are answering them as promptly as we possibly can. We had very few glitches yesterday — which was practically a miracle considering the thousands and thousands of orders that came through — but we so appreciate your patience for those of you who did experience issues.
3. Yesterday was exhausting and intense because there were so many orders and questions coming all at once, but it was so much fun! Your excitement over the course blessed me so much. And your sweet and supportive comments on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, on this blog, and via email touched my heart. Truly, I have the best readers on the planet and I am so thankful for each and every one of you.
