Update on our Fundraising Efforts

The Global Giving April Challenge has just ended, and we are pleased to report that we have met the challenge of raising at least $4,000.00 from at least 50 different donors.  To date, through our Global Giving page, we have raised $5,092 from 76 donors!

In addition, 15 other donors directly gave us P60,000 (or $962) in cash and checks. 

On top of these, a portion of the proceeds from artshows and exhibitions that we are conducting from April through early June will benefit this project, and we expect to raise at least another P150,000 (or $3.488) from these activities.

So we are nearly 2/3 of the way to our target amount of $15,000.  We hope to raise the balance in the coming month or so.

I just wanted to give you an update, and to assure you that we will keep you all posted on the progress of our project.  The response to our project and goals have truly been amazing, and I've posted some links to a number of positive press that we've received.

Thank you, all, for your strong and continuing support!
