The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) is very excited to announce Global Giving's Match Day tomorrow, March 16th! All day tomorrow, GlobalGiving.org is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project!  Please consider donating to MLI's Global Giving project and help us raise money to support landmine survivors.  

In just the past two months, MLI has helped children like Mohammad, an 8 year old boy who lost both of his arms and eyesight in his left eye last year when he mistakenly picked up a landmine, thinking it was a toy.  Because of the generosity of MLI's donors, we were able to help Mohammad get prosthetic arms and eye glasses!  

In addition to the 30% match, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors! So please consider donating to MLI's GlobalGiving project and help us provide critically needed medical care to children who have been injured by landmines.
