Making a Difference - Thank You Letter From The Field

Dear friends,

Thanks to all of you that already donated to the GlobalGiving Challenge 2008! We appreciate you.

Below is a link to a “thank you” letter (in PDF format) I just received from Freetown, Sierra Leone - In this letter, the Headmistress / Principal of the school expresses gratitude for the supplies you and other previous donors have helped to provide. Thanks for joining us in continuing to make a difference – and helping to educate the next generation of leaders in Sierra Leone.

As of Sunday, November 16, the project has received a total of $1,240 from 32 donations. With this money we will be able to provide additional scholarships, children’s books and much-needed school supplies. This is a great start!

We however still have 43 unique donors to go in 5 days time. This is “doable”. I’m sure with your help we can reach this goal.

Please let your friends and loved ones know about the challenge and encourage them to give too. If you could personally reach one or convince one person, we will definitely get there. You are welcome of course to make an additional donation.
