Pay It Forward 9/11

This is the company Katie works for. Hopefully I'll have some more feedback when I find out how she and each of her co-workers spend their $100.
Here's the link that explains the story better and describes what people did last year.

I got to go with Katie this morning to the Austin Children's Center where she and her partner chose to buy a brick commemorating 9/11 and the pay it forward story.
It's still under construction, but we were given a tour. The multiple buildings include and infant/toddler center, villas for older children, a charter school with a gymnasium. Ultimately it will be able to care for 78 abused children of all ages until proper, caring homes can be found for them.

This afternoon I'll get to hear the stories of her co-workers and how they made this better place.

I would love to see a follow-up, more current re-visit with this guy - what a powerful testimony to his THANKFULNESS, his ability to recognize that the people who took in all those strangers on 9/11/01, did it out of the goodness of their hearts and in the spirit of community. this is WAY COOL, Ann. I can't wait to hear what Katie and her co's did with their funds this year to help folks out in Austin. :-)
