Project of the Month Update: January 2012

Educate Children in Ningxia Province, China

Dear Project of the Month Club,

Happy New Year! In our first email of the year, we are excited to welcome 30 new people to the Project of the Month Club. These new members may have seen the Club featured over the holidays, or may have even received Club membership as a holiday gift. However you found out about the Club, we are thrilled to have you, and we are grateful for your generosity (and the generosity of those who gave to you!) 

Then we have even more good news for you. Last month, you and the other Project of the Month Club members raised a record-breaking $4,594 for Education for Children in Ningxia Province, China. The Children of Ningxia organization provides scholarships to 95 children who would otherwise not have the money to attend school. Your combined donations provided year-long scholarships for five children. The families of these children will no longer have to worry about where the money for lunches or textbooks will come from in the new year. (Chinese New Year is on January 23 this year. How wonderful that five children can look forward to school rather than manual labor this year!) 

January's featured high-impact project is called "Help These Children Avoid Further Suffering," a project by Retrak that meets the needs of children who have fled the famine-stricken areas in the Horn of Africa and are now living on the street in urban slums. "We want to be ready to act quickly as children arrive on the streets," says Anna, Retrak's project leader. "We will provide imediate care as well as offer them a real alternative to life on the streets. We will work to get these children back into a family environment." Your donations in January will be enough to put at least five homeless children into foster families in Ethiopia for a year. Thank you for giving these kids a fresh start for 2012. 

We hope that you feel gratified seeing the impact of your giving on a regular basis. Thank you again, and we look forward to updating you on the high-impact project that you will support next month!

Warm regards,

Mari and the GlobalGiving Team

    Miriam E Two great projects--so worthwhile; no wonder membership in the GlobalGiving Project of the Month Club is growing! Very personal and meaningful way to donate to charity, and what a wonderful gift for someone who really does not need more material things as presents!
