Thank You

Each day our inboxes fill with stories of how you have helped people create change in their own communities; stories from 1,000+ nonprofits around the world who’ve expanded their reach, and stories of gratitude from people in 120+ countries whose lives have been forever altered.

It’s time we forward along the message to you, our generous donors. We created this video with the hope you’ll take just a couple of minutes to see the faces and hear the voices of people who just want to say one thing… THANK YOU!

Below are some of the great projects that took the time to help us record the footage in the video above. 

Rescue Unwanted and Abandoned Companion Birds
Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue, based in Northern California, helps birds commonly kept as indoor pets by rescuing, rehabilitating (physically and behaviorally), and re-homing them. Most of these rescued birds come to us injured, abused, or neglected, or are very ill. We usually care for about 450 birds at a time, incurring veterinary bills of $30,000-$40,000 monthly. This project helps pay for those medical expenses. project reportread updates from the field

Give a Vietnamese child a helmet; save a life
In Vietnam, 2,000 children die on the roads each year. To address this situation, this project will instill safe road habits in 1,500 Vietnamese children by providing helmets, training teachers on effective education techniques, engineering safety into school environments, and raising community awareness of road safety. Not only do these interventions ensure that students can get to school safely; in the long-term, these healthy habits will serve to improve the entire road system in Vietnam. project reportread updates from the field
