Usually our reports on this space emphasize the need for tuition funds for our children at the Good Samaritan Children's Home.  Today we are asking you to consider the need for good sturdy shoes for the children to wear to school.  Not only must teens have the money for tuition, but they also need be dressed properly to even  walk into a classroom.

For this Bonus Day on October 17, we are asking you to make your contribution to our Project #7377, which provides new shoes to the students at the Good Samaritan Children's Home.Ten dollars purchases one pair of shoes.  Our goal for this Bonus Day is to provide 100 shoes for the orphans of the Good Samaritan Children's Home--that means we raise $700 and with Global Giving's 30% match we will have enough money to see that 1 in 5 children at the home will have a new pair of shoes.

We know that you are interested in educating these worthy scholars.  Now give them the extra boost with sturdy shoos for school.  Go to Project 7377 on the 17th of October.  Your donation must be made between 12:01 A.M. and 11:59 P.M. on the 17th.  Make your donation early in the day, because when the money for the matching funds run out there will be no more.  On last Bonus Day matching funds were all used up by 10:00 A.M.

The size of your donation does not matter.  You can buy one pair of shoes for $10.00.  Think about how happy and proud you will make on child.
