June Project Update

Did you know that this project has the potential for farmers to produces more than 50 liters of honey per year and earn as much as $400 annually in additional household income? For one of the world's poorest economies, where one-third of the population lives below the national poverty line, this is HUGE. And what is even more amazing about this project is that not only do local farmers profit from it, but the forests do too because farmers have an additional incentive to conserve the forests where the beehives are kept (we can't resist saying that this win-win situation is the "bee's knees"!). Thank you to generous donors like you, we are on our way to doing great things for Kanga Village's people and its forests.

We've been humbled by the generous support we've received to our two other projects on GlobalGiving and are hoping to take things up a notch with this project and have it fully funded by the end of the summer (we need just an initial $1,500 to launch it). To kick things off, we are excited to let you know that this Wednesday, June 13th is GlobalGiving Bonus Day and all donations to this project will be MATCHED at 50%!* Will you help make this project a reality? Your additional gift of $10 will become $15 and your $50 gift will become $75. Forward this email, post the report on your Facebook page, tweet about it on Twitter - tell your friends why you chose to support this project and ask them to make a gift too. It is amazing what we can accomplish when we all do our small part. 

On behalf of all of us at ARC, THANK YOU for supporting Kanga Village's beekeeping project. 

*Donations will be matched between 12:01am EDT and 11:59pm EDT on June 13th, up to $1,000 per donor.
