Regional Bonus Day

Dear Friends,

This is a small note just to remind you of something new that GlobalGiving has introduced called Regional Bonus Day which is happening on the 9th of October, 2013.

On the 9th, Oct 2013, from 12:01 am EDT or 7am Kenyan time, Globalgiving is having a special Bonus Day. Not only are they matching donations, while funds last, but they are also offering two $1,000 bonus prizes.
A project that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving and that project that has the most unique donors on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving...

So friends of MCFpananirobi, please if you could help us get this matching funds through your generous contributions, it would do a great deal in helping us meet school fees demands for more than 106 children next term from January which is current budgeted at $ 15,937.

Please visit the GlobalGiving site since we can only receive this funds if you kindly donate via their website

Thank you and we cross our fingers that we may be part of the winning team through your assistance.

PS; For those of you who made enquiries about our safety after the terrorist attack in our city, we are fine, none of our relatives or team was either hurt or killed. Thank you for putting us in your prayers.
