Your extraordinary choice

That means "Thank you" in Filipino!
That means "Thank you" in Filipino!

Thanks so much to everyone who took advantage of GlobalGiving’s most recent matching day. Your gifts on October 18th were a third more valuable – and that has made all the difference for families like Sherwin’s.

If you’re like us, you’re starting to think about the holiday season. The holidays are a time of joy – but for many of us they’re also incredibly busy! Before the end of year rush starts, we wanted to pause for a moment and thank you for everything you’ve given over the last year.

Because of you, when disaster struck in August, 2013, Banaba was ready. Families like Sherwin’s had emergency food during the flood evacuation and emergency relief in the difficult days after the water receded.

What’s more, now – three months after the floods – there are now projects running that will help Sherwin and his family become more prosperous and less vulnerable.

There have been so many times over the past year that you could have chosen to spend your hard earned money on something for yourself or your family, but you made the incredibly generous choice to support families like Sherwin’s. Thanks so much!

As always, if you ever have any questions about how your donation is changing lives, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for your generosity, and our very warmest regards!
