Dear Donor,

Thank you very much for your generous donation to our project on Global Giving.  We are proud to announce that we have raised a sufficient amount of funds to bring the shipment of a stand alone boxing ring, and two more boxes full of boxing equipment to Nicaragua!  The equipment, which has been stored in Miami, will be payed for and shipped to Managua by next week.  The boxes will be received by SD4I and FENIBOXA in Managua and then brought to Muelle De Los Bueyes, the hometown of Nicaragua's Olympic hero Osmar Bravo.  This equipment will greatly impact over 100 youth from Muelle De Los Bueyes, by allowing them to create a boxing center for the community, in which kids can go to learn how to box, as well as learn valuable life skills, such as responsibility, work ethic and resiliency.

Again ,thank you very much.
