We did it!
Congratulations MAU supporters! Thanks to your dedication to the health and welfare of the world's children, we can celebrate reaching our $14,000 goal to purchase an entire PlayPump well system for a village in South Africa.

We are so grateful to our volunteers and everyone who attended the tea or donated to the PlayPumps initiative. Remember to check our website for updates, information and other good stuff from Mothers Acting Up: www.nmmothersactingup.com (you can also subscribe to our blog, and will get email notification when we update it)!
In spirited partnership,
Kate and Copland
