Recurring Donation Campaign & Field updates

John Odock - sponsored child

$35 – keeps a child at a board school per month.

 From April we decided to post smaller goal $1500 live even if the intention is to raise $50,000. The reason is that smaller goal attracts donation. When the goal was lowered to $1500 within two weeks the project has raised $1120.  When the goal has reached 75% - it will be added by similar amount of $1500, so on, and so on until the goal is $50 000 is achieved.

There are many orphan South Sudanese children in Uganda. Years of terrible events, including war and disease, have produced South Sudan society in Kampala where many children have no parents. Often elderly grandparents or other relatives try to raise the children but many are too old or are in such deprived circumstances that they simply cannot provide even the basics. As a result, there are many South Sudanese children fending for themselves in the streets of Kampala.

Hope Ofiriha has established these programs to take care of these children who otherwise would be unable to attend school.  Hope Ofiriha’s goal is help 300 children!

Last April we collected a little extra and new child name Ben Mathew has been added into our program.  He will join the rest at the board school.  

Because of your generosity we are able to help these children. We will be providing you with project updates in every three months. Thanks so much for being with us and look forward in working with you for years to come.

On May 2, 2011 GlobalGiving Recurring Donation begins at 12:01 am EDT! This is a great opportunity for you to sign up for monthly recurring donations only $10.

Why recurring donations?
Recurring donations are a consistent and reliable source of income for our organization. This helps us in planning our activities several months ahead. 

By making a recurring donation, you pledge to give to your project every month. GlobalGiving will automatically deduct the donation amount from your credit card each month.

Hope Ofiriha appreciates that you give monthly $10 than to donate $120 in December as one time gift.  $10 each month is a lot of money and it will go a long way to make a huge difference in Uganda. In Hope Ofiriha there are no small or big amounts. Every cents count!

We need a total of 10 people to sign up for a monthly recurring donation of only $10 each month. Could you join us please!

GlobalGiving is giving away $12,000 in bonus awards during this campaign!

Here are the main reasons why you should consider signing up for monthly recurring donations to Hope Ofiriha;

  • The top 20 projects that receive the most new unique recurring donors will each be awarded a $500 bonus.
  • One project that raises the highest donation amount per month from recurring donations will be awarded $1,000.
  • One project that attracts the most new unique recurring donors will be awarded an additional $1,000 (for a total of $1,500!).
  • Projects must have at least 10 new unique recurring donors to be eligible for bonus awards.

The final results of this campaign will be adjudicated in August 2011. Bonuses will be awarded based on the amount raised and the number of unique recurring donors at this time. In some cases, projects may forfeit bonus awards if donors cancel their recurring donations before the awards are given.
