I would like to thank each of our donors on behalf of the Cell Phones for Cuba team and Roots of Hope. We hope your new year has gotten off to a great start. We are pleased to announce the incredible success of our holiday campaign.
In Cuba, the majority of Cuban youth celebrate the end of the holiday season on January 6th, The Day of the Three Kings. We are happy to announce that before January 6th, over 115 Cuban youth received a brand new, Cuba-capable cell phone.
Of the funds collected during our Global Giving Challenge, $1500 was spent on the shipment of the 115 cell phones. The remainder of the funds was allocated towards the purchase of another 200 brand new, Cuba-capable camera cell phones which will be sent to another 200 Cuban youth as soon as possible.
Once again, we thank you for your steadfast support of our initiative. Your gifts are directly providing youth in Cuba with the modern human right of communication. If there is ever anything I can do for you – on any front – please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
