‘Flying Nun’ Sr. Jane Will Jump From Plane for Haiti Collection

In a follow-up to this post about Sr. Jane Meyer, who challenged her school to raise $25,000 for CRS’ Haiti relief by vowing to jump from an airplane if they hit their target, we have this note from the daring Sister:

I think I am “up in the air” – we just finished counting the money today and we are at more than $40,000. We are sending a check tomorrow. Pray that I don’t have a “heart attack” as I ascend and jump! Why did I say “yes”? Because I believe in Catholic Relief Services and I believe that we have a responsibility to help Haiti. If that motivates people to give “I’m in.” I have been so blessed and given so much so, I constantly remember: “To whom much is given, much is expected in return.” I am preparing for my jump and I want my message to motivate others. We will hit over $50,000, I know. The competition is fierce among classes. Anyway, I am beginning to get in training!
Blessings,
Sr. Jane
