Thankful!

For those of you celebrating, we hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday! This is a special time of year, a time to reflect on the past year, with both its successes and challenges, and a time to give thanks. MedPLUS Connect would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who have made the Cervical Cancer Screening and Treatment Program a reality. With your support, the first set of supplies were purchased and delivered to the Wa Regional Hospital this year- a huge accomplishment! The dream of establishing this program began with Dr. Fofie several years ago and we are so excited and grateful to you all for helping make that dream come true this year. The purchase of the diathermy machine, cryotherapy set, tenaculums, biopsy forceps and speculums enables the women in the Upper West Region of Ghana to be systematically screened for cervical cancer and to receive treatment in their region, instead of having to travel hundreds of miles to the southern portion of the country. So again, with our sincerest appreciation, thank you for all of your support!

We also wanted to share that GlobalGiving has partnered with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for an extremely generous campaign for #GivingTuesday, which is this Tuesday, the 29th. The foundation has provided $500,000 in matching funds for #GivingTuesday and there will be an unprecedented 50% matching for #GivingTuesday donations, up to the first $1 million raised! This is the largest amount of matching funds GlobalGiving has ever had in one day! In addition, all new recurring donations made from #GivingTuesday through December 31st will be matched at 200%, up to $100, on the fourth donation!

#GivingTuesday is a special call to action to create a global day of giving that brings together diverse organizations and communities around the world together to give back. It provides people everywhere with the opportunity to give more, give smarter, and give great. The GlobalGiving #GivingTuesday campaign will begin on this Tuesday morning, November 29th and end at midnight. Following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and then Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is a beautiful way to bring everything full circle to go into the holiday season with gratitude and giving.

We wish you all a happy and fulfilling holiday season!

Thank you,

Anna LeViere
