Every Girl Needs A Hero

Wednesday, June 13th is BONUS DAY!

Every donation made on June 13th, will be matched at 50% up to $1,000 or until all matching funds run out.

There are $75,000 in matching funds available!

You are the reason we were selected to be apart of the Girl Effect and we are counting on you to help us take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity by sharing and giving big!

Meet the lovely Tauba.

She is one of 30 children enrolled in the primary one class at the Nyaka Primary School. At home, she helps her family collect firewood. When she's at school, she likes playing with her friends and learning science. Her goal this year is to pass her exams.

For $21 a month, a special donor like you has made that goal more attainable than ever for 90 students just like Tauba.  We are at 15% of our ultimate goal - to have every one of our 584 students sponsored.

Now, we have a chance to increase the impact of your amazing support!

On any other day, committing to the monthly gift of $21 a month on Global Giving provides one primary student like Tauba with a uniform, meals, medicine, and supplies for one school year.  For $42 a month you can provide the same support to one secondary student.

A one time donation of $250 or $500 gives one primary or secondary student one full year of poverty ending education.

On June 13th, your contribution will support a well as other individuals in Uganda.

You can put on your cape, swoop in and combat poverty in three simple ways, right now.

  1. Commit to a monthly donation to support a student like Tauba today!
  2. Share this email and become our student's biggest advocates.
  3. "LIKE" our Facebook page and become a part of our online community.

If we have the most first time donors, we will recieve an additional $1,000.  If we raise the most money, we will recieve an additional $1,000 on top of that!

Every girl needs a hero.  Why shouldn't it be you?
