Challenge

GlobalGiving has designed three custom brick sets that build a well, a school, and a tree and is offering them a free gift when you make a donation to the Bricks for Good Fund. GlobalGiving will disburse your donation to one of nine top performing projects in Africa, Latin America, and Asia that are focused on providing clean water, expanding basic education, and reforestation. Bricks for Good sets can only be shipped within United States.

Solution

GlobalGiving is using the money raised from the Bricks for Good fund to support nine high-performing projects related to clean water, education, and reforestation. Donors who select to receive a Bricks for Good set will have a small portion of their donation go to pay for the costs associated with the acquiring, packaging, and shipping the Bricks for Good sets. This portion of the donation is denoted as the fair market value of the set on the receipt and is not tax-deductible.

Long-Term Impact

Our mission is to catalyze a global market for ideas, information, and money that democratizes aid and philanthropy. GlobalGiving has independently designed, purchased, and packaged the necessary pieces and elements for the sets described above.
