Happy ThanksGiving from Haiti!

Just over a month has gone by since the extraordinary success of Global Giving’s match funding day on October 19th when you donated $2,262 in just one day. With your generosity, you’ve given students like Wilkens the chance to get an education and learn the skills he needs to build a better life.

As Americans across the country start to plan their ThanksGiving celebrations, we hope you’ll take a little extra joy in knowing that, this ThanksGiving, you’ve given 120 students in Haiti a reason to be thankful.

Thank you so much for all you’ve already done to Give the Gift of Education this holiday season, and we hope you’ll continue your inspiring support of these driven students this holiday season by giving a gift to support English students.

Giving a gift is as easy as going to the project page and finding the "gift" button right under the large, orange donate button. The project which receives the most gifts on GlobalGiving will be eligible to receive extra funding!

If you can’t give a gift, you can still help bring hope for the Holidays by spreading the word to friends and family about how easy it is to change lives in Haiti.

One last time, thanks so much for all you’ve given, and a very Happy ThanksGiving!
