Build a Classroom for At-risk Children in Thailand

New milestone! (Plus, your gifts matched at 40%!)

Hi everyone!

This Wednesday, June 13, GlobalGiving is literally giving away money. Every gift you make to The SOLD Project on GlobalGiving will be matched at an incredible 40 percent, up to $1,000 per person, per project! That means:

  • $50 becomes $70
  • $100 becomes $140
  • $250 becomes $350
  • $500 becomes $700
  • $1000 becomes $1,400

We're especially excited because, thanks in large part to a generous one-time gift, we're able to start construction on Phase 1 of our second classroom building! As soon as weather conditions permit (we're in rainy season right now), we'll prepare the land and lay the foundation. From there, we need just $4,300 to fund Phase 2, when we'll start framing and building the exterior walls and roof.

That's why this matching gift opportunity is so exciting. Not only does it significantly increase the financial impact of your gifts, it has the potential to accelerate the construction timeline of this whole project.

June 13 is a great time to step out and give generously. Whether you can give $10 or $1000, the return on your investment is truly incredible. Matching gifts aside, you're giving more than 120 kids the opportunity to learn and grow up to live in freedom.

Thank you for you ongoing support of The SOLD Project's work to prevent the exploitation of children through education!
