Bonus Day is on Wednesday, June 12th! Starting at 8 am CT (or 17:00 Moscow time), all donations (less than $1,000 per donor) will be matched by GlobalGiving. Our projects are ranked "Superstar", which means we get the highest match: 50%. It's a rare opportunity to multiply your impact, so make sure to participate. Even a nominal donation will help too - a project with the highest number of donors can get an additional bonus of $1,000.
Dozens of patients in St. Petersburg currently need help with paying off the bills for bone marrow donor searches. A few are still raising funds for the first installment that will help initiate the search. One of these patients is Arcady, a teen who has been fighting leukemia for the last 2 years. He recently had an early relapse, and bone marrow transplant is his only hope for cure. His parents earn modest income and their savings were drained during the years of their son's illness.
Join us on Wednesday and help give hope to Arcady and patients like him.
Thanks to your support, in February we transferred $2000 to bone marrow donor registry in Germany to help Misha N. find a donor. Misha is 14 years old. He is a sweet and caring boy. He lives with his mom and grandparents. Three years ago, the family went through a shock of his leukemia diagnosis. It was sucessfully treated and it stayed in check - until November 2012. Although Misha had no symptoms, control tests discovered a relapse, and now a bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor is needed to save his life. After chemotherapy, Misha achieved remission. However, he is in a fragile state and a relapse can occur at any time.
On March 13th you can help patients like Misha beat leukemia by supporting our project and earning 30% bonus from GlobalGiving! All donations (less than $1000) will get the bonus, starting at 9 am ET (or 5 pm Moscow time). And the projects that get the most donors or raise the largest amount will get additional $1000 bonuses.
Join us on Wednesday, March 13th, and help more patients get a chance to live!
During 2012 we were able to raise more funds than ever before to help leukemia patients pay for bone marrow donor searches in foreign registries. As you may know, a number of registered bone marrow donors in Russia is too low to allow finding a complete match. In fact, this year the first Russian donor was activated in a database at Pavlov State Medical University in St. Petersburg, while hundreds of patients need transplants annually to have a chance to survive.
Your help made this possible for 17 people - children and adults, men and women.
If you would like to increase an impact of your donation, consider signing up for recurring donations. GlobalGiving will match your first donation (up to $100), and there is a chance to win a bonus if enough of us sign up.
Thank you in advance - and have a wonderful holiday season!
Great news: our project to help patients find bone marrow donors was recently featured in International Innovation magazine, Healthcare edition. We were selected from hundreds of projects on Global Giving website as an example of grassroots campaign making a difference in their community. We are very happy that our work and your support were noticed and appreciated.
This Wednesday, October 17th, Global Giving is offering another opportunity to increase your impact! This will be the last Bonus Day this year, and all donations (up to a limit of $1000 per donor) will be matched by a 30% bonus. The bonuses will be added starting at 12:01 am EDT until the bonus funds run out.
