A tribute to the 99ers: We are not invisible.

The Last Word (until next time).

"The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell" has been on MSNBC since September 27, 2010. It airs at weekdays at 10 PM EST between the 1st nightly airing of "The Rachel Maddow Show" and the 1st nightly rebroadcast of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann". On December 16, 2010 O'Donnell announced the inception of the K.I.N.D. Fund. The fund's purpose is to provide over 46,000 desks for children in Malawi. Most schools in Malawi have no desks. To date the fund has raised over $1,700,000, or 35,400+ desks. In less than 3 weeks the fund is over 75% towards reaching it's goal. Wow.

Imagine, a show that's been on a little over three months raising $1.7 million in under three weeks. That's fabulous. I am with this effort 100% in spirit but current unemployed circumstances preclude me from participating financially. What Mr. O'Donnell is doing is amazing but I must ask: Mr. O'Donnell could you please give the 99ers the same nightly exposure you are giving the K.I.N.D. Fund? The 99ers need help and the energy of those that gave the $1.7 could go a long way.  Mr. O'Donnell, will you please help?
