Our Thank you gift to you: 2013 Calendar

Mercy Corps
Mercy Corps' 2013 Wall Calendar

Thank you for your support. Because you have put your caring into action to Mercy Corps through GlobalGiving, we are able to make a positive impact on lives in the Horn of Africa. To show our appreciation, we'd like to give you a Mercy Corps calendar as a thank you and daily reminder of how you are changing lives!

Because of you, we’re on the ground doing everything we can. We targeted emergency aid to the hardest-hit to help them survive in the short term. Now, we continue to support people building resilience to future cycles of drought and hunger — finding new ways to earn money and support their families, replacing lost livestock and improving the health of their animals, cultivating drought-resistant crops and better managing their land and water supplies. We could not have had that positive impact without you!

To receive your free 2013 Mercy Corps wall calendar, please send an email to with your mailing address! Your address will not be used for any other purpose than mailing you this calendar.

If you are a resident of the Portland, Oregon metro area, please keep in mind that Mercy Corps has several upcoming free events that we would love for you to attend. Tuesday evening on October 30th, we have team members share their stories from the field of how positive changes are being made. Please click here for details of this and other upcoming events and exhibits. If you'd like to attend or receive a monthly email of these events, let us know! Your email will not be added to Mercy Corps overall email list. 

As the end of 2012 quickly approaches, thank you in advance for keeping Mercy Corps in mind as a donation option to change additional lives for the better.

Again, thank you!
