Dear Project of the Month Club Member,
First and foremost: thank you for your continued generosity. Together, the Project of the Month Club is creating positive change each and every day—and building the foundation for a brighter future. In the words of S.A. Lawrence-Welch, Director of our March Project of the Month recipient: “The first step to healing is feeling not alone.”
In February, you joined a community of 647 donors to raise $25,790 in support of Childline Kenya’s project Shine a Light on Child Abuse in Kenya. This month, that generosity will support Seeding Sovereignty’s kakichihiwewin project.
An Indigenous, womxn-led collective, Seeding Sovereignty works to tackle oppression and environmental degradation by revitalizing Indigenous practices and communities in the United States. Their kakichihiwewin project supports this mission by creating online healing circles, sending out care kits, and curating an online storytelling series that elevates the experiences of Indigenous people.
“Everyone has a story, and the kakichihiwewin project will be there to help heal through words,”shared Lawrence-Welch. “Nitataminan - I am grateful and thankful, knowing I can continue this work with security. It truly is a gift and a blessing to not only me but to those who benefit from kakichihiwewin.”

Thank you for another month of inspiring compassion!
With heartfelt gratitude,

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
