South America "Open Challenge" Fundraiser

In January 2011 I began a 6 month trip through South America as a GlobalGiving Representative, to see the amazing work of local organizations & teach the basics of Online fundraising. With 1 month left in my journey, I'm hoping to practice what I've been preaching by taking part in my own “Open Challenge”, the month-long process organizations must go through to become a GlobalGiving partner. My goal: Raise a total of $4,000 from 50 donors, in 1 month. Here are the groups I'm looking to support..
