GlobalGiving Will Match Donations on March 14

GlobalGiving Will Match Your Donation on March 14!

The walls are going up on the new Pediatric Heart Center of Nicaragua and Surgeons of Hope is turning our attention to finding the sophisticated modern medical equipment and supplies to make the new Center function as an extraordinary state-of-the-art facility.  Our next surgical missions for 2012 are being assembled as training elements continue, all timed to be ready for the Center’s grand opening in early 2013. It is a lot of work for a small foundation.  You have contributed in the past year by helping to bring delicate heart surgery to the poor young children who patiently await help from our surgeons, teamed with the local medical staff at La Mascota Children’s Hospital in Managua.  How important your help has been to us and to the children.

Every step we take contributes toward the realization of the success of the new Heart Center as a surgical and learning center for the region.  The children we have helped and that you have helped will be invited to join with us to celebrate the opening of this new era in pediatric cardiac care in Central America. 

Throughout 2012, Surgeons of Hope Foundation will, of course, continue with surgical training missions during which we select children from the waiting list and provide heart surgery to them free of charge, with your help and the help of others like you who see that generosity can bring exponential benefit.

On Wednesday, March 14, GlobalGiving.org is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project!   $50,000 is available in matching funds, but only on March 14. Once these matching funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied. Therefore, if you intend to give, please plan to give early in the day, The Bonus Day offer begins at 12:01 AM on March 14 and continues all day, until the matching funds run out.  In addition to the 30% match, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most
funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors! 

Please donate to our project, Healing Children’s Hearts in Nicaragua and Haiti, and support the children awaiting heart surgery! Your help is urgently needed and much appreciated by Surgeons of Hope and by the children we help!
