Thanks for your past donations. Tools for Empowerment, ASAP's newest project, is gaining traction as we begin to look into possible workshop locations. We still need to secure funding for the startup phase of the project but things are looking optimistic. We are hoping our GlobalGiving supporters will help us move towards achieving startup funding. If you believe in self-reliance and not just handouts, you will understand the value of a complete tool kit for someone who has worked hard to learn a trade. That artisan can then utilize those skills and become a contributing participant in their Haitian community and not a burden.
ASAP will soon be starting it's second annual "Circle Our World With Love" fundraising campaign. This year it is to raise money for Tools for Empowerment tool kits to be sent to Haiti. Participants will dedicate their non-motorized activity miles between July 1st and Sept 30th, from running, bicycling, rowing, etc. Sponsors for their miles will help towards the goal. You may want to consider dedicating some of your miles this summer to a noble cause.
Please make a generous donation towards the self-reliance of Haitian entrepreneurs. Your contribution will change lives. And June 12 is the date we would love you to donate to this project because your donation will be matched by GlobalGiving. Give generously for this great project on June 12th!
