Heads up:

Starting a 9:00 AM eastern time in the United States on Wednesday, July 18, GlobalGiving will be donating a half match for the first $240,00 donated on that day. A half match means that if you donate $100, GlobalGiving will match this with $50. The maximum donation for any donor to be matched is $500. Since this match is open to all 4600 projects on the GlobalGiving webpage, the funds will go quickly. Therefore it is important to donate as early as possible after 9:00 AM eastern time. Our goal for the day is to receive $1000 in donations and $500 in matching funds.
