We’re halfway through our online Summer fundraising drive and #yourklru is making waves on the internet! Thanks to you, we met yesterday’s $10,000 challenge match from Claire and Carl Stuart, putting us over the $35,000 mark! But we still need your help to spread the word about #yourklru and get it trending on social media!

For some inspiration, here’s a sampling of what some of your fellow viewers are saying about #yourklru:

We absolutely love how engaged the Central Texas community is in this campaign, but we can’t stop there. We’ve got to raise another $10,000 today in order to meet our goal of $50,000.

With your help #yourklru can bring about a wave of change to our fundraising drives! Can we count on you to make a gift in support of #yourklru today?
