This was our first project on GlobalGiving which has now led to us being able to raise close to $500,000 for the NPO not only on GlobalGiving but through our generous donors and sponsors.
I remember when I was refreshing the screen like a dreamer when we launched the first fundraiser to get $5,000 and 50 donors and in the last hour, I refreshed and we hit the target thanks to an angel who said, "it was a no brainer, you needed $1,500 to hit your target so I donated that!"
It is hard to believe we have accomplished since then.
It is beautiful to just think that something that was only an idea at one stage is now operating from Tohoku to Nagasaki, 1,000 computers in the field, and many more homes joining and asking for PCs.
It warms my heart to walk into the office and see the Ambassadors who were 15 when we met in the homes, now graduated from high school, going to university but working with us part-time to bring the programs and computers to the youth like them in the homes.
Thank you for your believing in us from the beginning and your continued support.
