We lost Nora on August 1, 2019. We miss her every minute of every day.

Journal entry by Kelly Leonard

This spring (exact date to come, likely end of April), Chicago Waldorf School will host a virtual fundraiser to start building Nora's Soon and Moon Park. Amazingly, they have already raised enough money to break ground this year - in the same year that Nora's classmates will be graduating high school. As her classmates get set to leave for college, we are focused on how Nora's legacy can remain at the school.

I know many of you have donated and we are so grateful to have your support in building this space that will hold Nora's spirit and so many others who have left us too soon. 

But we have another ask. Chicago Waldorf would like to have anyone who donated to send us a short video on why you donated. We want to share these stories with our greater community. You can shoot a 15 second or 30 second video on your smart phone and send it to me at kleonard@secondcity.com or to Becky Moskowitz at bmoskowitz@chicagowaldorf.org.

Thank you for walking with us through this journey that we never wanted, but that we continue to endure because of your love and support. 

Kelly and Anne
