There’s a retirement center in D.C. for veterans called the Armed Forces Retirement Home. And last year, disaster struck . . . when their BINGO MACHINE broke.
It’s like a small billboard with big numbers on it that light up, so they’re easy to read. And not having it means a lot of people can’t play. But they couldn’t afford a new one.
Then back in June, a 16-year-old named Sarah Nordlinger found out about it, and decided to raise money for a NEW machine.
She’s with a group called Children of the American Revolution. And she started a GoFundMe page to raise $8,000 . . . including $6,000 for a new machine, plus $2,000 for the retirement home’s community garden.
In the first two months, she managed to raise about $1,700. Then last week, “The Washington Post” did a story about it. And now donations are pouring in. Last we checked, it was up over FIFTEEN GRAND.
