Setting a New Goal for the Solar Lamp Project

Dear  Donors,

It gives us great pleasure to let you know that “Solar Lamps for 700 Students in Sundarbans, India” has achieved its target of raising $6000! We have already given 150 individual solar lamps and 7 twin light systems to school hostels. We will be giving out the remaining solar lamps by early January 2012. Encouraged by your response we have planned to continue with the project now aiming to provide Solar Lamps for 1600 students in Sundarbans.

GlobalGiving is hosting a Bonus Day on 19 October 2011 where they will be matching every donation at 30%! They have $100,000 is available in matching funds. The Bonus day starts at 12:01 am EDT on October 19th/
9:01 pm PDT on October 18th and will last until funds run out or 11:59 pm EDT/ 8:59 pm PDT (whichever comes first). For India the time would be approximately 8.30 am to 8.29 pm on 19th October.

If you wish to donate or know of a friend or relative who would like to do so, this is a great opportunity!
