Neither had I. You are not going to believe this...
We just heard from Boeing (yes... as in the airplanes!) and they are offering us a MATCHING donation up to $10,000. Not only that, but one of their employees has agreed to give us a $10,000 check to gain this match IF WE can come together to raise ANOTHER $10,000 by June 30th to equal $30,000! And this gave me an idea.
Have you met Thabita?
Thabita is a successful graduate from secondary school where she was able to study electricity. Her job is safe and pays well providing for herself and her family, but it wasn't always this way. Prior to donations from GIFTS Rwanda, Thabita had dropped out of school and worked a low paying and unsafe job because the daily survival needs of herself and her family were unmet. Your donations enable people like Thabita to develop their skills and make a difference for an entire family.
Thabita's story is not unusual. Not by a long shot. Children are obliged by their parents to help them with the needs of the family to survive. Families entrenched in poverty can't get regular meals, and because of hunger, students drop out of their studies so they can try to feed themselves and their families. School uniforms, materials, and school fees all cost money and most families cannot come up with the costs for their children to attend. And all of this has been greatly exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and war in Ukraine as food and supply prices have skyrocketed in Rugarika.
What if we all work together to raise $10,000 by the end of June and have it TRIPLED giving us the opportunity to raise $30k to support these families by giving them food and getting their children back into school?!
I have talked to our team in Rwanda and with these funds we can more than DOUBLE the amount of children we currently provide school funding and food for. This is an incredible opportunity for you to triple your donation and give a child like Thabita the opportunity of an education. We know the impact your donation can make. Will you help us?
Please help spread the word about this incredible triple campaign opportunity by sharing this blog, GIFTS Rwanda's website and our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter social media platforms with your friends and family.
Remember, you can give a little, triple your donation, and be a very important part of the change you want to see. Are you in?
