The 130% Gift for an Emancipated Life

By Teresa Parker | Development Director

Leaders of the Freed Kamlaris Development Forum
Leaders of the Freed Kamlaris Development Forum

As NYF's Indentured Daughters Program matures, many of the young women rescued over the past two decades are now leaders of the Freed Kamlari Development Forum (FKDF).  These women understand, as no one else can, the reasons for abolishing child slavery in Nepal.  And, it is the ultimate plan to have the FKDF assume control of the Indentured Daughters Program one day.

Nevertheless, the current reality is that children continue to be sold into indentured servitude by destitute parents and your help is as desperately needed now as ever before.  We need to keep these innocent children safe from the dangers of being sold to foreign brokers who take the children far from their villages.

And, now, next Wednesday, March 14 ONLY...

... because we appreciate every dollar you have given to support our program, NYF is thrilled to invite you to participate in GlobalGiving’s Bonus Day event.

Wednesday, March 14, 2012, GlobalGiving.org will match 30% for every dollar you donate!  $50,000 in matching funds are available, but only on March 14.  This 30% matching offer begins right after the stroke of midnight, March 13, and runs only until the $50,000 is claimed. Once the funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.

Add even greater value to the gifts you give NYF.  Mark your calendars for NEXT Wednesday, March 14, 2012.

And, GlobalGiving will make this 30% match for single contributions up to $1,000!  That’s $1,300 value for a $1,000 donation.

What this opportunity means for the Indentured Daughters Program is that the $1,000 gift that would normally fund the rescue of 10 enslaved children, will, on this one day, March 14, 2012, provide enough money to rescue a total of 13 little girls to come home and return to school for the same donation.

 PLUS –

  • The organization that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.
  • The organization that has the most unique donors on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.

Thank you again for your support of the Nepal Youth Foundation.  Namaste!
