Eastern North America has just gone through one of the worst storms in its history. All eyes will be on recovery from this storm. Even with adequate warning and technological backup, emergency services, electricity and heat, many people died and were injured. Property damage is in the millions.
It feels hopeless to ask you all to look once again at our efforts to recover from last year’s tropical storms and flooding in the Burmese refugee camps, but perhaps now you may have a feeling of the power of such a storm.
Here we have no brick walls, no services. As we continue to recover from the floods and extreme weather, a year later we have done much with many thanks to all of you.
We invite you to have a look at our new GlobalGiving Micro Projects for Rebuild Burma Refugee Recovery Centres. Just go to the project site on GlobalGiving. Even if we can fund these 3 small micro projects, we will be doing very well. We need 1 Roof, 1 Floor and Bumpers for our truck.
To look to the future, during the month of December, GlobalGiving will be offering 100% match on all initial recurring donations up to $100 per donor. They have $25,000 in matching funds available and matching will last until December 31st or until funds run out. The top 5 projects that recruit the most recurring donors by 11:59 ET December 31, 2012 will win $500 bonus award each. To qualify for the match and for bonus awards, donors must give for 3 consecutive months following the initial donation (for a total of 4 months).
We will be participating in this challenge. As a donor to DARE Network’s projects we hope you will consider converting your donation to a monthly recurring contribution.
More later about this event. In the meantime stay safe wherever you are.
Please have a look at the photos of the work that still needs to be done.
Wishing you well.
From all of us at DARE Network
Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.
Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
