Thank You!

Christmas Donations!
Christmas Donations!

Dear All,

We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of those who donated to the Global Giving challenge.  We far exceeded our expectations and are amazed that we were able to raise over $30,000 in such a short amount of time.  We are proud to be the project that won for most unique donors!

Your support makes it possible to breakdown the barriers that prevent girls living in poverty from getting an education and making it from adolescence to adulthood safely.  We are a young organization and we are thrilled to have you endorse our cause.  As you know the cost of continuously improving lives does not go away and we hope for your continued support in the future.

Over the Christmas holidays we were able to provide boxes of food for all of the 52 girls and their families.  Soon we will launch our new video and have lots of great things planned for 2011.  We're also recruiting long-term volunteers to come and work with our girls!

Happy Holidays,

The Mariposas
