I wanted to let you know about an exciting opportunity that we are participating in through our non-profit partner in Washington, D.C., GlobalGiving. From November 24 - December 21, we are competing to earn a spot on the GlobalGiving website, and earn up to US $6,000 from GlobalGiving by being one of the top fundraisers in the Global Open Challenge. The organization with the greatest number of individual donations will get $3,000, and a separate $3,000 prize will go to the project raising the most money. The second and third place runners up for both achievements will get $2,000 and $1,000 respectively.
Here’s the description of our first project to be posted on GlobalGiving’s website:
This project will feed, clothe, educate & shelter 260 Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children (OVCs) and complete the construction of their daycare centers in bush villages of Malawi, Central Africa.
In order to keep our project on GlobalGiving and use their website for ongoing and future fundraising, we need to raise a minimum of US $4,000 from at least 50 unique donors during the Challenge.
You can help us succeed by spreading the word!
