Important message about #GivingTuesday

Dear GlobalGiver,

We are proud to let you know that our project has been selected to be part of Microsoft's 2013 YouthSpark Initiative! Here's what that means and why we're so excited:

Microsoft's team handpicked projects which empower youth to imagine and realize their full potential through education, employment or entrepreneurship. And to support these projects, Microsoft will match donations this #GivingTuesday. So a gift today to Rescue and Educate "carpet kids" in South Asia will go twice as far!  

The nitty gritty:

  • The campaign runs December 3rd at 12:00pm ET through Decmber 4th at 11:59am ET, or until their $250,000 in matching funds run out.
  • Last year, matching funds ran out in about an hour! Please give as early as you can to be sure your gift is doubled.  
  • Matching is dollar-for-dollar, up to $1,000 per donor per project.
  • This only applies to online donations.  

We know there are many worthy causes to give to this holiday season. We hope you'll consider us among them. It will help us go twice as far and be doubly ambitious in the year to come as we work to emancipate and educate children in the most dire of circumstances.

Best wishes for a joyous holiday season,

Rebecca Shaloff
