The Race to 1k has now started.

Today Global Giving will be matching $.50 of every dollar donated starting at 9am EST and lasting through midnight.

On top of that, they will also be rewarding the organization that receives the most gifts from new donors with $1,000.

You students need your help to win this virtual relay.

Take your place on the starting line and...

  • Give a $10 gift to support girls' education.
  • Share your generosity with 5 friends and family members of Facebook, Twitter or via email.
  • Inspire them to give $10 too by telling them why you support children like Sheila, Ritah and their classmates.

Pass the baton!

Sheila and Ritah are loving life. (see above)

They are attending Nyaka Nursery School.

When they arrived on campus their bellies were distended due to malnutrition. They were barefoot in tattered clothes. They did not have daily access to medical care through a school nurse.

What a difference YOU make.

You can tell by the pictures that these little girls have blossomed under you love and care.

They are eating healthy meals and drinking clean water every day. You have given them brand new uniforms with shoes, socks and underwear. You have placed pencils in their little hands and given them school books too.

You have changed their lives for now but what about the future?

Well. Let's talk about their future.

Because these two little girls and their fellow classmates will be educated, they will be less likely to contract HIV/AIDS. They will bear fewer children and wait to get pregnant until their bodies and minds are mature enough to handle that responsibility. They will not be forced to marry in their teens.

You have rescued them from a life of poverty.

You should be SO proud of your compassionate work.

Tell the world.

Inspire them with why you believe that these little girls are worth your investment.

Pass the baton!

Win the Race to 1k.

GO!

Get Set. GO!

Jovita
Jovita's new home.
You are on the starting line.

You have until midnight to inspire your loved ones to help you pass the baton in the Race to 1k.

Today Global Giving will match $.50 of every dollar donated from now until midnight.

There is also a bonus prize of $1,000 for the organization that is given the most gifts from new donors.

Remember - You can help from wherever you are!

  1. Give a gift of $10 to your favorite grannies.  

  2. Pass the baton by sharing your generosity with 5 loved ones on Facebook, Twitter or via email.

  3. Inspire them to give $10 too!

$1,000 is enough to build another safe home, smoke free kitchen and sanitary pit latrine.

Doesn't Jovita look lovely standing in front of her new house!? (see above)

YOU built it for her!

You helped her move out of a home that leaked through the roof and the foundation. Jovita feared that snakes would be washed in with the elements. Her three grandchildren spent their nights trying to sleep in cold and damp conditions.

YOU built Jovita's kitchen and pit latrine too! (see below)

She was forced to sell most of her land when her husband battled a long period of illness. Sadly, she was widowed and left without the financial resources to support herself.

She has to rely on a neighbor just to be able to use the restroom every day.

Not any more.

YOU came through for her and her grandchildren BIG time.

Today, you have the opportunity to rescue a granny just like Jovita with a smaller than normal investment.

Help win $1000 and build another Nyaka grandmother a safe home, smokefree kitchen and sanitary pit latrine.

Take a moment to tell your friends and family about the lives you are changing in rural Uganda.

Go ahead. Brag.

Pass the baton. Inspire them to give too. Win the Race to 1k!

GO!

You are on the starting line.

The Race to 1k begins NOW!

It is BONUS Day and from now until midnight Global Giving will be matching $.50 of every dollar donated.

There is also a $1,000 prize given to the organization that has the most new donors.

Your favorite Nyaka & Kutamba students need you to help them win this virtual relay.

  • Start with a gift of $10.
  • Share your generosity on Facebook, Twitter or via email with 5 friends or family members.
  • Inspire them to give $10 too. 


Pass the baton in this relay and you could support the education of 4 primary students just like Allan.

Allan could have been easily overlooked.

He is a child with a severe neurological disorder living in rural Uganda without access to medical attention or social services.

Allan's ability to live a productive life was a long shot at best.

Until he met YOU.

You have funded Allan's education through primary school and helped fund an important surgery restoring some mobility in his arms and legs.

You also purchased a wheelchair for him so that he would no longer have to crawl on the ground to get around.

Today, because of your investments, international volunteers are teaching Allan computer skills.

Due to Allan's disability, his ability to attend secondary school with his peers is impossible. The closest facility that can meet his special needs is in Kampala - a ten hour drive away from his family, friends and village.

Thanks to you, we are able to keep Allan surrounded by the community that he loves while helping him reach his highest potential.

You are setting Allan up for success!

Thank YOU!

Today you have the opportunity to introduce 5 of your friends and family to the remarkable, life saving work you are doing for more than 600 children living in rural Uganda.

You have the opportunity to pass the baton and win the Race to 1k.

GO!
