More Academy Updates and the First Bonus Day!

Happy International Women’s Day! On Friday, we celebrated the accomplishments of our girls and the progress on the More Than Me Academy at our first ever Gala in Morristown, New Jersey. We couldn't do the work that we do without amazing supporters like YOU.

Progress is being made every day on the ground in Liberia. We’re still actively hiring teachers, painting the school, looking at classroom furniture, conducting after-school activities, getting clean water for the girls, and much much more! It’s all very exciting stuff. We have great new photos of the construction progress that we wanted to share with you! See below.

Again, we can’t thank you enough for your support.

This Wednesday – March 13th is GlobalGiving’s first Bonus Day of 2013. Starting at 9am ET, every donation made to the More Than Me Academy project will be matched by 30%. Our goal is to raise $20,000 for our Academy on Bonus Day! Will you help us?

Here’s what you can do:

  • DONATE! And donate early : ) – There’s only so many GlobalGiving matching funds and they will run out as the day goes on!
  • Send a personal message to 10 friends including why MTM is important to you and ask them to each donate $50!.
  • Spread the word! – Post on Facebook and Twitter about Bonus Day and donating to More Than Me!

Thank you for making dreams come true! We look forward to providing you with more school updates as they come.
