pinata for the visitors of L'Arche
Dear supporter of our work
Some of you received our English 5th Newsletter. If not, and you are interested, please write a mail to:ruachjuigalpa@ gmail.com
In our Ruach newsletter we informed you about the connections we have with the international L’Arche organisation, hoping to be part of that family one day. And about the social political situacion of represion in Nicaragua that is very worrying.
We were also very lucky to inform you about two campaigns planned, to help us raise money. To support the activities we are doing for and with people with an intellectual disability. Because without money raising we are not able to do what we are doing!
- We ask all our friends, contacts and people who want to support us to make a donation on the GlobalGiving page the 27th of November, joining the Thanks Giving Tuesday campaign! See details below.
- A friend, Eric, will organise a sponsor-run for our Fundación the 10th of November! So please, sponser Eric and our work. See details below.
10th of November:
Eric Jager, our Dutch-English translator and unoffical Ruach ambassador in the UK, is organising a second sponsored run to raise money for the Ruach Foundation. This time supported by team mates from SPFit, the most social running club in Dorset UK, which he recently joined.
Eric writes: “I trust it will be a good event. Start and finish are from our home. Last time (2016) I ran solo 26.2 km, so I’ll raise the bar higher this year. My aim is 32 km this time. Being two years older at 62 it won’t be easy. Please sponsor me IF I beat the 2016 distance of 26.2 km. Via Vivir Juntos in € (www.vivirjuntos.org) or via GlobalGiving in $.
The 27th of November is another great moment to support us!
GlobalGiving has designated November 27 as #GivingTuesday, a global day that kicks off a charitable season for ‘giving back’ on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and after the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
WHEN + WHERE:
GlobalGiving’s 2018 #GivingTuesday Campaign will begin Nov. 27, 2018, at 00:00:00 ET and end at 23:59:59 ET on Nov. 27, 2018 (in £, $).
Matching funds and bonus prizes will be displayed on the #GivingTuesday leaderboard.
GlobalGiving has pledged to add up to 50% of your gift to Ruach if received on 27th of November.
We would like to buy some computers for the Activities Centre, which would expand the scope of the centre, and help the participants to learn more and progress in their development. Every desk top computer will cost about $ 600,- US.
So, if you are inclined to financially support us, please give a donation via GlobalGiving that day, helping us to give a better life to intellectually disabled people who are still not valued for who they are and for what they offer to our society here in Juigalpa!
Can we count on you to buy one, maybe two computers? Every penny we raise will contribute to improve the activities of the people with an intellectual disability in the activity club in Juigalpa!
Donating is possible https://www.globalgiving.org/ projects/ fundacionruach (Human rights Nicaragua # 28192)
