Dear friends,

We would like to sincerely thank you for investing in the Education Scholarships for Child Laborers project.  With your generous support, we will continue to provide 300 returning migrant children and first-generation learners with school supplies and a safe ride to the classroom each day, freeing them from a lifetime of back-breaking labor in India’s brick factories.

Did you know that an additional donation to this project can be matched 30% today?!   GlobalGiving put up $50,000 in matching funds at 12:01 am EST, Wednesday March 14 to give your charitable contribution to our cause an extra boost. Check out how your donation today will grow:

$10 = $13
$50 = $66
$75 = $100
$150 = $200

What’s more, for this first Bonus Day of the year GlobalGiving is awarding $1,000 to the project that raises the most money and another $1,000 to the project with the most unique donors. This is exactly how you won GlobalGiving’s Girl Effect Challenge for our Blossom Bus project last October, and we know you can do it again!

But remember, once the $50,000 in matching funds runs out, the bonus boosts are over. So to make sure you snag that extra 30% AND put us in the running for the $1,000 bonus money, submit your donation now! 

Thanks again for your continued support!

Lots of love,
Lotus Outreach
