You guys are amazing! You have become part of a mission to imporve the lives of some desparate people living in the peace Village of Nakayot, Uganda. You will forever be part of this. I hope someday you can go with me to meet them yourself. I truly beleive this medical clinic will change their lives. Thank you.
Your giving has been so strong we blew past the goal of $7000 and have raised it to $8000. This would allow us to pruchase some equipment for the clinic and nurses hut. We are currently sitting at $7150 in donations.
Tomorrow at 9 PM the fund raising for this project wraps up. Our project is ranked #24 and we are still in the running for some bonus money at the end.
If we can exceed $7500 in donotions by tomorrow night our project will be featured for one day on the Global Giving newsletter. This will get us great world wide visiblity.
If we get new recurring donors (donors that agree to give an amount they choose for 4 months) then that amount will be matched. Another great opportunity.
Spread the word!
I'll send out another update when I can tell you how it all turned out.

So we are only $350 away from making our total goal of $7000 to complete the medical clinic and build a nurses hut in Uganda. Thank you to each and everyone of you who have given. You are very much a part of this project to bring improved health to this despatate part of the world. We have until Friday night to make our goal. Spread the word and lets do this!!

We did it!
By Mike Hildenbrand - Project Manager and founder of Serve Uganda
What an amazing ride! After several months of preparation in making an application to GlobalGiving, Being initially accepted and then submitting a project for approval. That was approved and then the project page had to be develped and approved. We got it completed just before the August deadline. Then the launch of the campaign on September 11 and all the communications to a wide variety of possible donors. It was indeed a wild ride, but so worth.it.
Thanks to all of you we made our initial goal of raising $5000 from 40 distinct indivuals. That was the requirement set by GlobalGiving to become a permanant partner. We did it. As of today we are at $5350 from 48 donors. We are hopeful of raising our total goal of $7000 to complete the medical facility in Uganda.
Thank you, thank you. I will keep you updated as a team travels to Uganda in Januray to do the actual construction.
