One Third Down, Two Thirds to Go!

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your support of our “Beyond Poverty—Spring Drive.”

We are pleased to inform you that within the first two weeks of our campaign, we passed the $4,000 mark with more that 50 donors. This has secured our permanent position on Global Giving. We could not have done it without your help!

We are thrilled that as of today, we have received donations totaling more than $7,000—one third of our Spring Drive target, which is $20,000. Already, your contributions have made a huge difference in our operations, as these pictures clearly show!

Within the last 10 days alone, we distributed more than 34 tons of product—including some 150,000 meals to needy families in the food-insufficient communities we serve.

As you know, we partnered with Global Giving to determine whether this platform would allow us to achieve our seasonal funding campaign targets with greater efficiency. At this point, we are very optimistic.

Of course, we still have two thirds of the way left to go. But, we are now within striking distance of three bonuses that Global Giving offers:—

1)      First of all, there is a “Match Day” on Tuesday, April 19. Donations received on that date, from Midnight to Midnight will be matched by Global Giving up to $1,000.

2)      We are only six places away from first place in this challenge campaign. With about $5,000 more, we will be eligible to receive a $3,000 “First Place Bonus” or a $2,000 “Second Place Bonus” from Global Giving.

3)      Finally, we can get a bonus for our social network activity. If you use Facebook, you can help us spread the word about our project, by clicking the Facebook share button on our campaign page. With just 150 shares, we will qualify for a special bonus from Global Giving.

Thank you again for your support.

We will keep you informed as our Spring Drive moves forward.
