August Stove Update

Thanks to the amazing support HRI has received through GlobalGiving, we have been able to construct 35 clean, energy efficient stoves in the rural dry corridor of Guatemala. The energy around this project has been remarkable and we are happy to be receiving such positive feedback from stove recipients about how much these stoves are changing their lives for the better.

We are thrilled at the strides we have been able to make so far, but there are so many families still in need of a safer, more efficient stove in their home. To date, we have exhausted all the funds we have raised through GlobalGiving and we need your help to reach more families and continue the momentum of support for this life saving project.

Here's how you can help:

This September, GlobalGiving is launching a fundraiser tool where supporters like you can help raise money for projects you care about. You will also be in the running for some great prizes that will be givien to supporters who create fundraiser pages and raise the most money. In addition, GlobalGiving is offering $3,500 in bonus awards to the organizations with the most successful fundraisers!

Together we can expand our reach and continue this life saving project for families in need. Please consider how you can help spread the word. Thank you for your tremendous support!
