Give Work to 15 Men with Intellectual Disabilities

May 7, 2013

We Did It!

Bulgarian version here

Nineteen hours and 23 minutes before the deadline, we successfully collected $5000 from 74 unique donors for our project to create an occupational therapy workshop for men with intellectual disabilities in Plovdiv!

From the bottom of our heart, we thank everyone who donated to our cause!

We also thank everyone who spread our idea among their networks – over 300 people actively shared our cause throughout the entire 30-day period!

Together we succeeded in surpassing this challenge to ensure an initial 18-month funding of the workshop at St. Vrach – Home for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities.  We also succeeded in obtaining the right to become a permanent member of GlobalGiving, where we will be able to promote our causes worldwide.

We, the team members of National Alliance for Volunteer Action, are inspired by our cooperative success.  We are glad that we have your support, as well as the chance to bring wonderful things to life together.  We believe that each person is endowed with the ability to contribute in creating good!

Once again, we thank you!  Please follow our progress when the activities – in the workshop you created – begin in May.  You can follow these updates on our webpage and on this site.
