Rachel's 9th Birthday Wish

Have you heard about Rachel's 9th Birthday Wish?

On her 9th birthday, June 12, 2011, instead of birthday 
presents she asked for people to donate money to 
clean water projects in developing nations. Her goal
 was $300. On her 9th birthday she came up $80 short. 

Just a few weeks after her birthday this poor beautiful 
girl was in a horrible car accident and was killed. 
But, the world heard her wish and her story and donations
 came flooding in. As of today, August 16, 2011, her 
charity has raised $1,098,189 and served 54,909 people. 

Isn't that incredible?
The human spirit amazes me.
