Today is a matching day at Global Giving, meaning that every dollar will be matched by 50%, growing your donations immediately. Right now, if we come in one of the first 5 organizations with the most unique donors, we will also receive a bonus! So...it is all good.
If you can, would you consider donating even $10 to this project today? Donations must be made by 11:59pm EST. Please tell your friends about this great project - you supported it in the past and have received reports of how well the kids are doing, thanks to YOU. Kids like Mary, who just regifted three goats to another family, fulfilling the requirement of giving to another once she had enough goats in her flock. Now, she stays in school, she eats well, her garden flourishes, and she has hope. Yes, because of you.
Will you help us one more time? Again, as little as $10 goes a long, long way.
Thembeni is a forty-five year old sickly widow who is looking after three children. They live in the Mahwanke Village in the Gwanda District. Their lives have been changed because of your generosity.
Thembeni tells us ... "I am thankful to the people who donated porridge because my family has been struggling to get nutritional rich food. The porridge is going to be of great help for the children who are going to school. They can go after having a very strong breakfast of corn soya blend."
The family was also part of the families who received rabbits in 2012 and she is very happy with the performance of the rabbit project at her home. Thembeni continues her story ... “The rabbit project at our home, where we were given two female rabbits has been a vehicle for a breakthrough iIn our lives. The number of the rabbits this year has gone up to eighteen. We have given back two rabbits and have sold seven and I managed to buy uniforms for my children and pay school fees. We have slaughtered three as relish and the meat is tasty and tender." The family presently has three rabbits and two of them are pregnant!
We share these first hand stories so you know exactly what the American Foundation for Children with AIDS is able to do with the funds you have donated. Lives are being changed every day!

What an amazing year it has been for AFCA's children, thanks to YOU! Because of YOU, thousands of children are thriving and hopeful. Because of YOU, countless children are healthy and they have returned to school. Because of YOU, hundreds of children had good food to eat this year. Because of YOU, hundreds of children have livestock and seeds with which to start small businesses. And because of you, children like Maria not only eat well, but also go to school, dreaming of a future free of poverty. We don't have enough words to thank you for what you've done because it is huge...it is life changing.
Thank you for caring for the little ones we serve and for giving them a brighter future. You are the ones who allow us to keep working for them, providing them with medicine, medical supplies, clean water, food, school fees and supplies, livestock, seeds, self-reliance and HOPE.
As you make your end of the year giving decisions, please keep us in mind so we can continue helping children in 2015 and beyond.
We wish you the best year ever, full of every blessing and happiness imaginable, knowing you are a hope-giver. If you'd like to learn even more about what we do or how you can meet some of the children you have helped, please contact me at tweaver@AFCAids.org. I'd love to chat with you!
