...and the result...

They did great! by Saturday afternoon they had raised 10 800,-NOK, sold every heart, a lot of cakes and muffins, and only had a few cakes left to sell to the teachers at school Monday for lunch. They did pass 11 000,- NOK. That equals 1350€, or 1892 US$, or 1181 £. The money goes to Redd barna, specifically for Haiti.
The local newspaper had an article about them. They had a great time, so eager and so willing to help. Da var lørdagen over...11 000,- fikk de inn!!! Og omtale i lokalavisa. De hadde en fin dag, og var så flinke til å hjelpe. Alle hjertene ble solgt, og det var såvidt nok kake igjen til lærerværelset på mandag. Pengene går til Redd Barnas Haiti-prosjekter.

Also, the sun is back on my windows:-)
Sola er tilbake på vinduene:-)


Have a great day!!!
Ha en flott dag!!!

Fantastisk jobbet. Mye kan bli gjort med 11.000 kroner. Fabelaktig innsats.

ER imponert over ungdommen jeg.

Ha en super dag.

Flott innsats ga mye resultat :) Flinke!
Herlig med sol i vinduene, og med den utsikten kan det nesten ikke bli penere.

Wow! That's wonderful! They should feel so good about what they've accomplished.

Look at all that lovely snow in the sunlight. What a special place.

Hia Marit thanks for visiting. Well done for helping to raise so much money for Haiti. It has been in the news here too. Son's school had a fund raising day which went well.

Min said...

I'm very impressed at their initiative and efforts well done. And a pat on the back for the mum who raised them!

Hi! Just happened upon your blog when looking for photos of Aestlight - what a lovely thing! I couldn't help but send a comment when I noticed your profile. I also have four children, 2 boys and 2 girls, and close to the same ages (boys born in 1990 and 1996, girls in 1993 and 1999). I don't know many people with four children, and I have never run across anyone else who happened to have 2 of each. I find it extra challenging to have kids of the same sex who are six years apart in age - that is a large age gap for a younger one to want to do just what the older one is up to! You must be very proud of them for their fund raising efforts.

I will try to remember to pop in and look at your lovely knitting from time to time.
