Congratulations. With your incredible support, we have come so very far. Our team here in Peru has celebrated each outpouring of your faith, in the form of a contribution to our project, as an investment against the injustice of slavery, shame and the entrenched cycle of poverty that operates around the world, and in the shantytowns existing on the outskirts of Lima, Peru. Each donation, as I write this numbering at exactly 100, fights social inequality, and fights for literacy, safety, laughter, mental health, and hope.
We were overjoyed, as we reached out to you on "Bonus Day," and were received with many of you reaching back. You gave us hope, as this latest Bonus Day campaign was among our most successful. Thank you. We feel proud and empowered, and you should as well. Own that moment, because without your unbelievable support, that moment would never have been possible.
We look to the future knowing that more is possible for our world, and knowing that this humanity, in this time, can and has made it so. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you, and wish you to know that we will not cease working. Please continue to support us. We are at a critical moment in our fundraising process. Help us make everything we know we must do a reality for the child laborers of Lima, Peru. You are the gamechangers.
We will leave you with a quote, "It's true that there are many injustices in the world, many worthy causes competing for attention and support, and we all have divided allegiances. We focus on this topic because, to us, this kind of oppression feels transcendent--and so does the opportunity. We have seen that outsiders can truly make a significant difference," Half the Sky, Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, p. xxi
