Wow, what a week!
Texans Care for Children

March, 2013

     Wow, what a week!
 
We called on you to march forth for kids this March 4th week, and, boy, did you ever!

Just look what you helped accomplish . . .
 
Monday
Over 24 hours, the capital city held its online giving festival. It was a great way to kick off our biggest fundraising week of the year. By week's end, with your help, we had raised $103,000 to improve the lives of Texas kids.
Tuesday
This march and rally was 2,000 Texans strong, and it lifted the message that families need health care. We trained over 500 community activists on how to talk to their legislators and led media outreach resulting in 140 news stories statewide.
Wednesday
You helped crush our online "FriendRaiser" goals, as we topped 1,000 "likes" on Facebook and 1,000 followers for our Early Education Alliance "tweeters." With the week nearly over, we're just a few followers away from reaching 2,000 on our Texans Care Twitter feed, too.
 
Thursday
Dozens of you champions for children turned out for our annual Put Kids 1st Luncheon. Together, we celebrated 30 years of making progress for Texas children.
Friday
Will 400,000 uninsured Texas children and even more low-income parents get health coverage next year? We came one step closer as a key legislative committee held a hearing on the topic, and we recruited online supporters to call on "txlege" members to do what's right and smart for our state. Help kids and families secure health coverage they need: add your voice!

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts,
for showing that Texans Care for Children!
