The number of children in our holistic child prostitution prevention program continues to grow. As you may have read on our blog, we recently accepted 21 new scholarship students! We're thrilled by the continual growth of SOLD's program and the immeasurable impact it's having in the lives of these children and their families.
With the growth of our program, however, the burden on our current facilities increases as well. We'd love to see a new classroom built this year, but before we can begin construction, we still need to raise an additional $3,500. The good news is, on March 14, we have a great opportunity to raise enough to get started.
On Wednesday, March 14, and continuing all day, GlobalGiving.org is matching all online donations at 30% up to $1,000 per person, per project! There are $50,000 available in matching funds and matching stops when the funds run out, so don't wait until the end of the day to give. GlobalGiving is also offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the highest number of individual donors. That means:
- Your $100 gift instantly becomes $130
- Your $250 gift instantly becomes $325
- Your $500 gift instantly becomes $650
- Your $1000 gift instantly becomes $1,300
You get the idea. : ) It's a great way to ensure your dollars have the greatest possible impact. In fact, if just 28 people give $100 on March 14 and it's matched at 30%, we could start construction on the classroom in April.
Please tell your friends about this project on Facebook and Twitter—the more awesome people like you we can get involved, the sooner we can finish this project and build the kids a new classroom.
THANK YOU for your continued support of not just this project, but of all the children at risk in northern Thailand who benefit from your gifts. We couldn't do what we do without you.
