Our friends at Global Giving are holding a “Bonus Day” on Wednesday 13th May, where they guarantee to match a portion of ALL donations of up to $1,000 made to live Global Giving projects!
The percentage of your donation that will be matched will depend on the total amount given to Global Giving projects on Bonus Day, but the important thing to remember is that, whatever you donate, your kind gift is guaranteed to go a little bit further and to help more children in need!
As Global Giving are based in Washington DC, the offer runs between 9 am and Midnight EDT (Eastern Daylight Time), which is the equivalent of 2 pm and 5 am GMT. Don’t worry, we’ll post a reminder on the day!
We’ve already been overwhelmed by the generosity of people who have donated to our Nepal Earthquake Relief campaign, and the funds raised so far have not only helped us to deliver blankets and supplies to survivors of the earthquake, but also to open an emergency shelter for children in the Gorkha district of Nepal. Gorkha was one of the areas worst hit by the series of devastating earthquakes on the 25th of April, with the majority of homes being reduced to rubble and many children orphaned. With your help, we are able to provide shelter, food, education and counselling to children who have lost everything, but our work is not over and we urgently need more funding to continue our relief efforts.
Please give whatever you can this Wednesday; you can be safe in the knowledge that you are making a genuine difference to the lives of children left traumatised by the Nepal Earthquake.
