Two donations this evening have particularly pleased us. The first was £15 from a young lady, the mother of two young sons, who is understandably concerned about their futures in a state education system run by women to help girls succeed at the expense of boys. I first met her around the time I was thinking of establishing J4MB – in January 2013, I think – and her enthusiasm for the project was inspiring. I can’t thank her enough. A charming woman, who I know can ill-afford to make donations to J4MB, but she does so, anyway.
We were also pleased by the second donation, for £1,000, which has brought the appeal total to £2,620. This is the largest ever single donation to J4MB, although a number of individual donors have sent in more over a period of time. We have the donor’s email address, and we’ve asked him (or possibly her, the person’s gender is unclear from the email address) to write a short piece explaining the motivation behind this donation. We’d like to think it’s a testament to the growing importance of our work. Should you wish to make your own contribution towards that work, you can do so here.
Thank you for your support.
