Provide Running Water for Students in Thailand

by The Freedom Story (Formerly The SOLD Project)

Hey everybody,

Good news—we're almost there! We recently received a large private donation specifically allocated toward purchasing the much-needed new desks for our students, which means we'll be able to purchase all 50 desks next month. It also means we only need $615 more to begin construction on the water tank! If we can raise that final amount this month, we should be able to begin construction in February and complete the project before the hot, dry season ahead. Can you help us down the home stretch?

In the meantime, the year is off to a great start! Our former intern and new Director of Volunteers just moved out to Thailand and is currently hosting a team of volunteers. All in all, our Thailand staff is stronger than ever and we're all excited for the year ahead.

Helping to provide safe seating and consistent access to clean running water on site may not seem like a life-changing act of generosity, but it is. Your gifts help us make The SOLD Project's Resource Center a safe, fun learning environment for children at risk to come every day to meet and play and learn the skills they need to break the cycle of poverty. One child at a time, we're changing the future.

Thank you for joining us, and for investing in the lives of these children.

We have an opportunity this week to make a serious dent in this project! Starting at Midnight ET on Wednesday, October 19th and continuing all day, GlobalGiving is matching all donations (up to $1,000 per person, per project) at 30%.

That means if you give $100 toward replacing desks and providing running water to our students in Thailand, we get $130. And if you give $1,000, GlobalGiving will donate $300 to this project.

This is GlobalGiving's LAST Bonus Day of the year and they only have a limited amount of matching funds available so when that's gone, it's gone. We expect a lot of other organizations will be taking advantage of this opportunity as well, so please don't wait to give. Let's give these kids desks and running water!

Please spread the word. If each of you tells three, five, or ten of your friends and they give, too, together we might just reach our goal in one day. That would be awesome, wouldn't it?

Thanks for your help!
