A Christmas Gift Idea from Retrak

Merry Christmas from all of us at Retrak
Merry Christmas from all of us at Retrak

Seasons Greetings from Retrak to all of our supporters! This holiday season we at Retrak have a lot to be thankful for, not the least of which is the continuing support of our GlobalGiving community.  Your donations over this past year have enabled hundreds of children in Africa to break away from street life and return to a loving and caring family.

This month, GlobalGiving is giving us the opportunity to stretch your dollars even further. During the month of December, if you sign up for a recurring gift, GG will give a 100% match of your first month’s donation. A recurring donation is easy to set up and automatically goes to your credit card each month so you can help provide a steady income for our work without having to worry about making separate donations each month. GlobalGiving is also giving away additional $500 grants! We need at least 10 new recurring donations before the end of the day Sunday, December 31 EDT in order to be eligible for bonus grants. Can we count on you?

 A gift from you can help children like James, who was brought to the Retrak clubhouse in Kampala after having been severely injured. Retrak’s nurse took him to a hospital where he underwent several surgeries and now says “Who could do such an act of favor to a person like me in this city I have lived in and experienced? I thank everyone who supports Retrak to help children like me. I know that Retrak has helped so many children and for this I want to say thank you and may God bless every one.”

We hope you’ll consider making a recurring donation to Retrak so that we can help more children like James. Sign up for a recurring donation here. Be sure to click on the “monthly recurring” option below the large orange “donate” button. Here, you will find instructions on setting up a recurring donation.

Want to give the gift that keeps on giving?  Recurring donations can also be given as gifts! Here, you will find instructions on setting up a recurring donation as a gift or in-honor of someone special.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
