Get your donations matched by 200%!

For the next 36 hours only, Global Giving will match any of your donations by 200%! 

That means that for every $1 you donate, $2 more will be added on.

Here's a breakdown of how much a 200% match means for your donations:

  • $10 you donate becomes $30
  • $25 you donate becomes $75 
  • $50 you donate becomes $150
  • $100 you donate becomes $300

You have already made such an impact in the lives of many, and we thank you for that. This is one more way you can help the citizens of Japan continue to recover and rebuild from the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit them in 2011. Even a small donation can make a huge difference!

Global Giving will continue to match your credit card or Paypall donations until March 15th, but the next 36 hours is the only time (until March 11th, 2013 23:59 PM EDT (March 12th, 12:59 PM JST)) they are matching at 200%! 

Your donation will support small businesses and provide access to capital and advice to revive the local markets and provide jobs to others. 

Thank you for continuing to care about those in Japan. We could not do our ongoing work without you!

With gratitude,
