Good News! You can make a huge difference in the lives of countless people affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Beginning at 12:01am EDT on November 1, 2012 (13:01 pm JST on November 2), GlobalGiving will be matching all donations made to Mercy Corps’ Response to Japan Earthquake and Tsunami project.

The matching campaign ends on November 15, 2012 at 11:59pm EDT (13:59pm JST on November 16) or until funds run out! Donate now! Matching funds will go quickly! Tell your friends! Please encourage them to donate too!

Here are some quick facts you should know about the campaign:

  • All donations will be matched 100% up to $1,000 per donor;
  • There is a maximum of $100,000 in matching funds. Once funds have been depleted, no more donations will be matched. But donations can still be made to help the people of Japan rebuild their lives; 
  • GlobalGiving will match through Nov 15, 2012 or until matching funds run out.

The continued support from donors like you allows the people of Japan to rebuild their lives with dignity and options. Mercy Corps has worked to provide life-saving basics to help people in desperate need, help children recover and heal from trauma, and continues to advance economic recovery by supporting fish markets, providing business loans, and supporting fishing associations.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at: fundraising@mercycorps.org.

Our Thank you gift to you: 2013 Calendar

Mercy Corps
Mercy Corps' 2013 Wall Calendar

Thank you for your support. Because you have put your caring into action to Mercy Corps through GlobalGiving, we are able to make a positive impact on lives in the Horn of Africa. To show our appreciation, we'd like to give you a Mercy Corps calendar as a thank you and daily reminder of how you are changing lives!

Because of you, we’re on the ground doing everything we can. We targeted emergency aid to the hardest-hit to help them survive in the short term. Now, we continue to support people building resilience to future cycles of drought and hunger — finding new ways to earn money and support their families, replacing lost livestock and improving the health of their animals, cultivating drought-resistant crops and better managing their land and water supplies. We could not have had that positive impact without you!

To receive your free 2013 Mercy Corps wall calendar, please send an email to fundraising@mercycorps.org with your mailing address! Your address will not be used for any other purpose than mailing you this calendar.
