Today is the absolute last day for my Seva Challenge! I can receive donation money until midnight tonight!! Your money will go to the following organizations: The Clear Water Project, Timmy Global Health, Amazon Watch, and the Cofan Foundation! Together you have helped me raise almost $11,000! It's been a long road. Tomorrow I will announce my overall total but today we are still rolling along in hopes of gathering as much as possible. As a whole the Global Seva Challenge had 100 fundraisers including yours truly and almost $220,000 has be raised. It's been an amazing journey. If you can give a few dollars please donate here💛
The NOSHOWS SUPPORTS THIS CAUSE! So should you!

Thank you to my very dear friend Jacquelyn Kosa-Kreichelt for her donation to my fundraising efforts!! Can any of our other pburg friends match Jackie's $25 donation?? Since Friday I have been able to raise $1,174 dollars for Seva Amazon!! Putting my total monies raised very close to $10,000! I have one last really fun event tonight and three days left to receive donations. For all of my... friends and family who have been scrolling past my posts about donating please stop and click on the link to donate and help me reach my goal of $20,000! Suddenly Samantha held a great event last night and we got some press about what I am doing. My fundraiser link can be found in the article. Love to all those that attended last night and who are attending the Zumba event tonight at 6:30pm at Studio Fitness! I'll be on the radio tonight from 10pm to 12am with Jessica Brown and Jason E. Hedrington 91.3 WLVR METTA RADIO program talking about Seva Amazon, yoga, and I'm sure a host of other insightful topics. A very special thank you to Stephen Flowers, Tricia Kelly, Bill Sneeringer, Gretchen Starke, Lauren Warner, Tom Patterson, Carly Comando, Jessica Jones, Melis Ersoy Laure Lovelace, Liz Chamberlain Littleton, Claire Richardson Shelton for making this weekend a successful one! XOXO http://www.lehighvalleylive.com/…/melanie_smith_amazon_fund…
I know it's really hard to part with your money these days but I'm getting closer to that 20K goal and I received $600 in donations in the last 72 hours...please keep it coming and keep donating. I know you can't see the people that this money will benefit and the scope of our environmental problems go far beyond just the Amazon, but your donation will make a difference and PLEASE don't think that someone else will do it because it takes just one person to make a change! Your donation is tax deductible!!! https://otmseva.fundraise.com/melanie-smith
