Peace Art from Burmese Refugee DARE Centre
Happy New Year
From all of us at DARE Network, we want to personally thank you for your contributions to the Tribute Challenge for our project to rebuild our DARE Recovery Centres.
The results are in. We secured 2nd place out of 1750 projects, thanks to you. This means that we received $500. in bonus funds from GlobalGiving. During the 5 week campaign, we raised over $5000. In recognition of our hard work and all the donors who contributed, GlobalGiving matched that $5000. with another $5000. This grant was from a small foundation that wanted to give to an organization in good standing on GlobalGiving and that was working on disaster relief. GlobalGiving chose our project Rebuild Flooded Burma Refugee Recovery Centres for this grant.
We are thrilled and are now able to build two more centres as a result of the Tribute Card Challenge.
The project funding is over halfway to its goal. We are hopeful that over the coming year others will continue to contribute to the project and we can make safe Recovery Centres for all of our refugee workers, clients, youth teams, womens’ and mens’ anti-violence groups and anyone who visits us.
In addition, our standing on GlobalGiving is nearly at the Superstar level. Only $1000. to go and we will be in a position to receive greater benefits on the GlobalGiving site. See the attached link.
Thank you once again for all that you have done and your friendship to us. Your donation will build infrastructure but your support will build hope.
