Thank you so much for your past support of Rebuilding Alliance's workl We've used every dollar donated to remarkable results. I ask for your help once again.

In just a few hours time, GlobalGiving will match by 30% every dollar donated, up to $1000. They have $100,000 to give away in just 24hrs on Wednesday Oct. 19th, Eastern Time.

We need your help to rebuild Palestinian homes, schools and playgrounds. 

Please go to, click the donate button and donate as early in the day as you can, before the funds run out.

Questions, suggestions? Please call me at 650-325-4663.

P.S. Your donation, large or small, really matters. GlobalGiving is providing a grant to the project with the most donors, and also a grant to the project that raises the most donations. We can do it... last time Rebuilding Alliance came in second. This time, help us to win!

P.P.S. One of our earlier GG Match projects helped create housing for teachers in Al Aqaba village. Here are photos of the Japanese teacher who came this past Sunday to give the children an overview of Japan!

Dear Friend

Rebuilding Alliance is forever grateful for the support you have provided in funding our project, Rebuilding a Future in Palestine. Within less than a month of your donation, our team was in Al Aqaba Village, near Tubas in the West Bank, to hold the Architectual Design Charette, which occurred in the end of July. Attached to this report is a PDF copy of our booklet, chronicling the remarkable Design Charette.

The booklet was designed by our charrette leader and executive director  to convey what we were able to accomplish through your generous donations. The booklet provides a day to day summary of the charette activities and details our results.

While perusing this booklet please keep in mind that everything discussed inside would not be possible without  your support to make it happen. You’ll find there is only one picture missing from this booklet. That picture is the one of you. As you look at each page, imagine yourself right there because through your contribution, you were!
