Educate and Feed 85 At-Risk Kids in Kibera, Kenya

Dec 22, 2009

Final Day of Global Giving Challenge -- Trailing by 19 donors!

Today is the final day of the Global Giving Challenge. Thanks to your generous gifts, our project, Educate and Feed 85 Kibera Kids At Risk, has raised over $11,000 for the nursery school and rescue center. We are thrilled (and amazed) at the level of support we have received.

Currently, with 181 total donors, we sit in 2nd place, trailing the leading organization by just 19 donations. We are hopeful that we can make one last surge in this final day of the contest to claim the prize for the greatest number of donors. A cash prize of $3,000 will be awarded to the organization that achieves this feat -- this represents 1/10th of the total operating budget of the rescue center and nursery school for an entire year.

We hope you will take a moment to reach out to any friends, family, classmates, or coworkers that you have not yet shared our project with (or that need a friendly reminder!) to let them know the impact of a small donation. Online donations will be accepted until 11:59pm (EST).

Many thanks again for all of your support. Here's to a successful last day of the challenge!
