Project of the Month Update: September 2012

Dear Project of the Month Club,

We’re pleased to share with you that last month, you and 137 other Project of the Month Club members raised $3,786 for "Plant 50,000 Walnut And Cherry Trees In Morocco," a project planting trees in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Hilary White, the leader of this project, wanted to let you know that your donations will plant 7,000 fruit and nut saplings in a community-managed tree nursery, as well as pay to train representatives of each village to learn all aspects of successfully raising trees while helping run the nursery. The newly-trained tree cultivators will then return to their villages to share these skills to others.

For September's Project of the Month, we're pleased to introduce to you a project called "Give Trafficked Girls a New Future in Cambodia. 

Athena Pond, Project Leader, wanted to share with you her message of appreciation upon learning that she was selected to participate in the Project of the Month Club:
"We are so honored to be selected as GlobalGiving's Project of the Month. It's an encouragement to our whole team to know you are joining with us in making dreams come true for some very deserving girls.

At Transitions we provide comprehensive restorative aftercare for girls rescued from sex trafficking. Each girl  receives personalized care to heal her past and provide opportunities for her future. A girl who finds her home at Transitions finds a new beginning. She finds hope, and with holistic trauma therapy, life skills and sustainable career training; she finds a dream for her future.  We help girls transition, through the power of a dream, from darkness to light, from victim to survivor, to world-changer."

We are so grateful for your support, and hope that you are proud to know that you are offering an opportunity for restoration and a safe, loving place to live for young survivors of sex trafficking.

Thank you again for your kindness and generosity. Your support is having an earth-changing impact around the world.

Warm regards,
Mari and the GlobalGiving Team

Project of the Month Update: August 2012

Dear Project of the Month Club,

We’re pleased to share with you that last month, you and 127 other Project of the Month Club members raised $3,561 for "War Vets Heal With The Help Of Shelter Dogs," a project pairing returned veterans with shelter dogs because shelter dogs need homes, and war vets need companionship.

The leader of this project, Cathy King, wanted to let you know that your generous donations will help provide placement for 100 dogs, as well as healthcare, vaccinations, microchips, and board fees before they find their new home. 

For August's Project of the Month, we're pleased to introduce to you a project recently visited by one of our In-the-Field Interns called "Plant 50,000 Walnut And Cherry Trees In Morocco." This project will build a community tree nursery with 25,000 cherry and 25,000 walnut saplings in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Many families in this area rely on farming traditional low-value crops like barley and corn, and live in poverty as a result. These trees are especially valuable for villagers because they do not require pesticides, they offer a high market value, and local people already possess the skills vital to maintaining them and marketing their fruit. By providing these saplings to communities in need, more than 3,000 people from 400 households will multiply their income, improve the environment and local diets, and diversify the economy.

Hilary White, Project Leader wanted to share with you her message of thanks upon learning that she was selected to participate in the Project of the Month Club:
"I am delighted to hear that HAF's tree nurseries project has been chosen to be the Project of the Month! HAF tree nurseries benefit so many people, helping them transition from extreme poverty to being able to make a decent living, eat better, send their children to school, and remain in their villages rather than have to leave and try to earn a living in the city. Club Members' contributions to this project will help improve the lives of members of entire rural villages, at least doubling their income in the first 6 years, with a ripple effect that will continue for generations to come."

We are so grateful for your support, and hope that you are proud to know that you are offering a sustainable and high-value opportunity to families in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Thank you again for your kindness and generosity. Your support is having an earth-changing impact around the world.

Warm regards,
Mari and the GlobalGiving Team

Project of the Month Update: July 2012

Dear Project of the Month Club,

We’re pleased to share with you that last month, you and 128 other Project of the Month Club members raised $3,716 for "Supplies For Baby Buggy Fatherhood Initiative," a project providing clothing, gear and products for children of low-income, non-custodial fathers enrolled in Baby Buggy fathering initiatives. 

Nura Poursharif, project leader, wanted to share with you that your generous donations are providing fathers approximately 30 cribs and 5,100 diapers, which will help keep their little ones safe and healthy.

To help celebrate America's Independence Day, we are excited to introduce to you July's Project of the Month, "War Vets Heal With The Help Of Shelter Dogs." One in four veterans who returns home from Iraq or Afghanistan will suffer from post-traumatic stress disorders, depression, or anxiety. Canines with a Cause brings together returned veterans and shelter dogs in a mutually beneficial training relationship. Spending time with a dog can lessen stress, so not only will veterans find relief from the dogs' companionship, shelter dogs' lives are saved by finding loving homes.

In addition to their daily project activities, this Colorado-based organization is currently struggling against the wildfires raging in its backyard. Cathy King, project leader for "War Vets Heal With The Help Of Shelter Dogs," writes that "it has been quite a challenge getting animals into safe places until their people can reclaim them. We're moving animals from shelters there to Utah and other states to make room for more intake."

Cathy wanted to share with you her message of thanks upon learning that she was selected to participate in the Project of the Month Club:
"Canines With a Cause would like to extend its gratitude for the opportunity to be Global Giving's Project of the Month. More than ever, our combat veterans are returning home to an environment where adjusting becomes difficult. They feel detached from their families, depressed and full of anxiety. CWAC trains and provides dogs to veterans in need of companionship, comfort and unconditional love. We currently are expanding our training program and will be able to bring more dogs into the program; your donation will allow us to spay/neuter, vaccinate, chip, board and prepare these dogs for their new lives, thus saving lives."

We are so grateful for your support, and hope that you are proud to know that you are providing a second chance of life and companionship to veterans and shelter dogs.

Thank you again for your kindness and generosity. Your support is having an earth-changing impact around the world.

Warm regards,
Mari and the GlobalGiving Team

Project of the Month Update: June 2012

Dear Project of the Month Club,

We’re pleased to share with you that last month, you and 126 other Project of the Month Club members raised $3,355 for Improving Maternal-Infant Health for Mayan Women," a project providing access to vital prenatal and postnatal care for indigenous women, newborns, and children. 

Rosemary Trent, project leader, wanted to share with you that your generous donations are helping 70 women learn valuable family planning skills and support the children they already have.

In honor of Father's Day, we are also very happy to introduce to you June's Project of the Month, “Supplies For Baby Buggy Fatherhood Initiative.” This New York-based project project provides clothing, gear and products for children of low-income, non-custodial fathers enrolled in Baby Buggy fathering initiatives. It helps fathers feel empowered to embrace fatherhood and the responsibilities that accompany it, as well as provide impoverished dads the tools they need to keep their children safe and healthy. 

Nura Poursharif, project leader for "Supplies For Baby Buggy Fatherhood Initiative," wanted to share with you her message of excitement upon learning that she was selected to participate in the Project of the Month Club:
"We are very honored to have been selected as the GlobalGiving Project of the Month Club’s high-impact Project for June! It seems so fitting to be honoring fathers who are making a commitment to their children in the month of Father’s Day.  Sadly, nearly 1 out of 3 children in America live in father-absent homes and children in father-absent homes are 5 times more likely to be poor.  Baby Buggy’s Fatherhood Initiative aims to provide fathers who are struggling to get by with the tools they need to play an active role in their children’s lives, and ensure that their child’s mother isn’t the only provider for the family.  By pairing donations of cribs, diapers, etc. with programs that provide job training and other skills, we can help dads to provide for their children now while they work to become self-sufficient over the long-term."

We are so grateful for your support, and hope that you are proud to know that you are equipping low-income fathers with the tools and training to provide for their families and support their children.

Thank you again for your generosity. Your support is having an earth-changing impact around the world.

Warm regards,
Mari and the GlobalGiving Team

Project of the Month Update: May 2012

Dear Project of the Month Club,

We’re pleased to share with you that last month, you and 126 other Project of the Month Club members raised $3,355 for Action for Health: Empowering Communities in Mali, a project providing health care for children in West African slums in exchange for their parent’s community service.

Anna Ninan of “Action for Health: Empowering Communities in Mali” wanted to share with you that your generous donations will help nearly 300 sick children who could not otherwise afford care receive free medical treatment. 

We are also very happy to introduce to you May's Project of the Month, “Improving Maternal-Infant Health for Mayan Women.” This project in rural Guatemala helps children before they are born by offering access to vital prenatal and postnatal care for indigenous women, as well as medical care to their babies during their most vulnerable period from birth to five years old.

Rosemary Trent, project leader, wanted to share with you her message of excitement upon learning that she was selected to participate in the Project of the Month Club:
"I am so proud and grateful that we have been chosen for the Project of the Month. I know your support will make a world of difference to the mothers and families in our program. Women in the rural Western Highlands of Guatemala often have eight or more children. This means risky pregnancies for the mothers, poor health for the infants, and large families to feed on less than $4 a day. Your gift will help 70 women receive the knowledge and tools they need to plan when and how many children they will have."

We are so grateful for your support, and hope that you are proud to know that you are providing essential prenatal and maternal heathcare for women and children in Mayan communities of Guatemala.

Thank you again for your generosity. Your support is having an earth-changing impact around the world.

Warm regards,
Mari and the GlobalGiving Team
