Partner Rewards Bonus Day

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your generous support in the past. We don’t take lightly the fact that you have set aside some of your hard earned money, even harder in times like these to support our project.

"Poverty sentences you to lack of education and even an early death! Am indebted to Mathare Children's Fund panairobi and to an extension to you (donor) for i see a light at the end of the channel, when i finish my studies," Ken* says of his sponsorship. That's the kind of impact you are having on children within Mathare slums.

My dear friends, rarely does an opportunity to do good come along when we're well-prepared for it. There is some good news, though. Right now, GlobalGiving is offering what they call Partner Rewards Bonus Day which kicks off today at 9:00 am EDT on July 16th, 2014 and ends at 11:59 pm EDT on July 16th, 2014. As leaders in GlobalGiving fund raising website - https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/educating-street-children-in-the-mathare-slum/ - we will receive 40% in matching funds. We are also excited to announce that for this Partner Rewards Bonus Day that we may receive a $1,000 bonus award as a project that raises the most funds and a $500 bonus award if we come in second place. There’s more! They will also be offering another $1,000 bonus award for most individual donors and a $500 award for the project that comes in second place.

That means that with your gift of $100, you have the chance to make a $140 impact! And cliché though it may be, the truth is that opportunities like this don't last long. We have only 12 hours to make the most of this chance!

Please note that it is only online donations (credit card or PayPal) that will be receiving this bonuses and also note too that donations made on globalgiving.co.uk or any GlobalGiving corporate sites is not eligible for matching.

So the question for you today my dear friends is: Can you give again? The need is great, the cause is worthy, and the battle is raging. And our cause here at MCFpanairobi has not changed. We are more focused than ever. The need is greater than ever, and the chance to make an impact even greater still.

These donations will go a long way to meet the fees for the 106 children who are in school for the remainder of this year who require more than $10,000

Thank you for supporting us in the past, we would not have done it without your support and kindly request you to continue doing so.


Asanteni Sana.

Regards Titus


PS; $100 will go a long way in meeting school fees for secondary school students for the remainder of the year...
