Update #3

If you haven't already noticed...we have officially reached our goal! However, I'm glad it was just a goal because we are still going! Due to all of your outstanding generosity (and at this point a little competitiveness...) the sky is the limit!
Eight more days left to contribute and I couldn't be happier to say, a lot of bears to build soon! I will release a final note on the 27th and more details on our event date and time.

For those of you following the competition between the Production and Foundation sites...at this current time the bear count stands at an amazing...58-52 FOUNDATION... So impressed with everyone's efforts!

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making this possible.

Update #2

1 Week ago we kicked off the Battalion Buddy fundraiser...With 16 days left I am so happy to say we are close to our goal! Huge "Thank You" again to everyone that has supported this! Today at work things got a little competitive when the Production side realized Foundation has also stepped it up! The sites are close in bear count: 44-34 (Production)...who will earn bragging rights??? So glad to see the participation and in the end everyone is a WINNER for supporting the cause! Have a great week everyone. -Jess Parrott

Update #1

Just a quick update for everyone:
I'm so grateful for those who have stepped up this week and contributed! With the support and contributions received for the Battalion Buddies event at the (Grinnell) Monsanto Production/Iowa Foundation site, we have hit 25% of the goal in less than 7 days! Really--Amazing!!
Just a reminder:
-You do not have to build your bear just because you contribute
-Collecting through March 27th

Thank YOU!
