8,146 … who would have thought that such a little idea would turn into something as amazing and wonderful as this. On Friday we passed another milestone … thanks to all of you … it’s still quite unbelievable to me … but poppies keep arriving in the postbox everyday and with more contributors joining us everyday … I think our revised goal of 25,000 is more than achievable. Big thanks to all of you who have contributed to date … and who have championed the cause and spread the word far and wide … we are truly thankful. Next milestone 10,000 by end June? I hope you are all up for the challenge. This photo was taken at the Hamilton Library last year as they embarked on their poppy challenge.
