On Giving Tuesday, Help a Street Child in Africa

Gift the Gift of a Meal to a Hungry Child
Gift the Gift of a Meal to a Hungry Child

Today is Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving to kick off the holiday season. This year Microsoft is making Giving Tuesday even more special by making a 100% match to any gift that’s made to Retrak’s program in Ethiopia, doubling the impact of your donation to Retrak.  A gift of $20 from you will feed two children a week. Twenty-five dollars will provide counseling to two children. Fifty dollars will provide shelter, safety and food to two children for a month.

Please take advantage of this incredible opportunity to double your gift by donating to Retrak TODAY, December 3rd, beginning at Noon EST. Please make your gift early before funds run out.

The Terms and Conditions of this amazing opportunity are:

  • The #GivingTuesday campaign will begin December 3rd, 2013, at 12:01 PM (noon) EST and will end December 4th, 2013, at 11:59:59 AM EST, or when matching funds run out.
  • There are $250,000 available in matching funds from Microsoft.
  • Matching is applied at 100% for every $10 up to $1,000 per donor per project.
  • Only online donations (via credit card or PayPal) are eligible for matching.

A gift to Retrak will help us support the Goro Rayya Primary School in the Rift Valley of Ethiopia, providing 650 school children with a nutritious meal every day, allowing them to concentrate on their school work and live healthier lives.

Thank you for your past support of our programs that have helped thousands of street children realize their potential and discover their worth. Please help more children by taking advantage of Microsoft’s generous opportunity and make a donation to Retrak on Giving Tuesday.
