2018 Giving Season Update

posted in: Current News | 0

You are simply amazing!

Thank you!

On November 27th,  GivingTuesday, we launched our Giving Season campaign through GlobalGiving. We had 3 goals, and we reached all 3 in the first 24 hours!

Goal 1 – Raise $7,500 so we could finally do a much needed remodel on our kitchen. One of the motivations for moving this project to the top of our list was to support the burgeoning Young Smart Farmers project here at Warm Heart. With your help we will be able to extend our kitchen, add refrigeration and storage space. We will now be able safely store and use the wonderful bounty harvested from the Young Smart Farmers project. The kids are learning a great skill, and feel positive and excited about being able to contribute fresh food to our kitchen. Thank you!

Goal 2 – Win a GlobalGiving Bonus – Launch day of the Giving Season was also a GlobalGiving sponsored contest, with cash awards  We came in 4th and were awarded a $1,000 bonus!

Goal 3 – Qualify to become a permanent member of the Global Giving Community – we had until December 31 to have 40 donors raise a minimum of $5,000. In the first 24 hours we had 61 donors contribute $7,855.

Since we met our target so quickly, we are able to expand our original goal.

Our greatest need is always to cover the expense of our Children’s Homes. 

We cover a portion of costs through a Sponsorship Program, but not every child has a sponsor, and sponsorship does not cover all costs (i.e. medical emergencies and dental issues). So we appeal to people like you, who enjoy the warm glow feeling that comes from knowing you are actually making a difference in a child’s life. We do all the hard day to day work, but we could not do it without your help.

If you missed the opportunity to be part of our successful Young Smart Farmers project, you can join and support our new campaign to raise money for the children.

Become a Beacon of Hope for One Child

December 12 will be another Bonus Day at Global Giving, and we will again be asking your help to spread the word on that day to help boost our reach and earn more Bonus Money.

Thank you for all of your generous support. We are very grateful.
