fundraiser was a success!

Hi everybody,
Barbara and I played 5 minute blitz chess against the public on March 20 and 21 in downtown Palo Alto next to Pizza My Heart! We really enjoyed ourselves and we hope the public enjoyed playing and watching!
The first day we raised $170. At the end of the day, we estimated that we played about 30 games and there was only one loss.
Kids to seniors stopped by, so it was fun to play chess with all age groups!
Yesterday, March 21, we raised over $260! It was really slow in the morning but in the afternoon, it really picked up! We won most games, lost and drew a couple too. Overall, we will give over $430 to UNICEF! We are happy that this money will help Haiti's children. We want the pain and the suffering to end. If you didn't know, Haiti is the poorest country in the northern hemisphere and most people live in poverty, which is really sad. In the long run, we hope they will recover from the earthquake and become a developed country.
And remember, anybody can make a positive difference in society (that includes you)!!
Thank you for your support and coming out!!
