The BPR Parsons Scholarship!

Most BPRs are aware that we have been collecting money for a "BPR Parsons Scholarship Fund." We earned a total of $5127.32! Our eBay auctions earned $1989.62 and the rest was from various advertising sources and t-shirt sales. It was my pleasure to present a check for this amount from BPR to Christine Mickletz at Parsons on Wednesday morning.

Christine suggested that this money could be used to fund scholarships for the Parsons Pre-College Academy. Read more about it here. Each scholarship will be $500.00 so BPR will be able to fund ten deserving students. Perhaps some of these will go on to a career in Fashion Design.

Ken and I were thrilled to be able to present this check on behalf of Blogging Project Runway.

Thank you to ALL who donated and purchased auction items, or who clicked on our ads, purchased one of our shirts, or used our Amazon link. Team BPR is grateful for each one of our generous and loyal readers.
