Get your donations matched by 200%!

For the next 36 hours only, Global Giving will match any of your donations by 200%! 

That means that for every $1 you donate, $2 more will be added on.

Here's a breakdown of how much a 200% match means for your donations:

  • $10 you donate becomes $30
  • $25 you donate becomes $75 
  • $50 you donate becomes $150
  • $100 you donate becomes $300

You have already made such an impact in the lives of many, and we thank you for that. This is one more way you can help the citizens of Japan continue to recover and rebuild from the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit them in 2011. Even a small donation can make a huge difference!

Global Giving will continue to match your credit card or Paypall donations until March 15th, but the next 36 hours is the only time (until March 11th, 2013 23:59 PM EDT (March 12th, 12:59 PM JST)) they are matching at 200%! 

Your donation will support small businesses and provide access to capital and advice to revive the local markets and provide jobs to others. 

Thank you for continuing to care about those in Japan. We could not do our ongoing work without you!

With gratitude,

Carlene

Just like you haven't forgotten about what happened in Japan, neither have we!

Starting today, for a limited time, just for the next two weeks (March 1st-15th) every donation you make to Mercy Corps' Japan Earthquake and Tsunami project will be matched by GlobalGiving at 100% up to $1,000.

Though the situation in Japan may not make the news anymore, the people there are still in need. It is only through continued support from donors like you that has allowed them to rebuild their lives. Mercy Corps has been there from the start with immediate life-saving care, and we will remain there to provide long-term solutions. 

Help us to honor this two year anniversary of the devastating tsunami and earthquake by making a donation and having your gifts matched today.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at fundraising@mercycorps.org.

With gratitude,

Providing Syrian refugees with their basic needs

Winter is far from over in the Za'atari refugee camp in Jordan. The most recent storms have left more than 50,000 Syrian refugees cold, wet and muddy. Despair hangs heavy in the air, as people start to view the camp as home while conflict remains constant back in Syria. 

Mercy Corps has been working at Za'atari since it opened in July 2012.  Back then we were digging wells, providing school supplies, and building playgrounds and shaded spaces for children to play safely away from the scorching sun. Now those same covered areas are providing a place for all to stay warm and dry from frigid rain. 

Though we will continue these efforts, our focus now is to provide people with their basic needs. With your help we are providing winter clothes, blankets, mattresses, cooking kits, gas heaters and gas to 1,000 families

While Mercy Corps works on innovative ideas to solve problems for the long-term, the refugees of Syria now require the most elementary essentials. The urgent needs of people in the toughest circumstances will always be at the center of our work. Right now, these basics make all the difference.

I will continue to send you updates on our work and programs in Syria and Jordan but please let me know if you have any questions or if I can provide more information.   

In gratitude,

Carlene
