Graduation Day for Orphans in Keya

It's graduation day in high schools across America.  Have you thought about what that high school diploma has meant to your life?  What would your life be without it?  That possibility faces several teens at the Good Samaritan Children's Home each year.  They can't even enroll in school because there is not money for tuition.

You can change that. The teens of the Good Samaritan Home are counting on you to donate to Project 6163 on June 13, as it is GlobalGiving's Bonus day, the day we plan to raise $1200 and thus send two more orphaned teens to high school.  With GlobalGiving's match we will meet our goal.

Here's what you need to do.  Early in the day June 13 go onto project 6163 and donate as much as your are able.  We need many donations no matter the size because a $1000 prize awaits the organization with the largest number of donors, as well as a $1000 prize for the organization that raises the most money.  This would be in addition to the match and the money you donate.

Please spread the word and graduation day will be a reality for all of the teens at the Good Samaritan Children's Home.
