What an event! We thank you all SO much for your support in this auction, from the donors to the bidders and all of you for being so patient with us as we collected payment and got your items to you. Your support blew us away.
We initially had a goal of $6500.
We are so happy to announce we have made just over $10, 700.00!! AMAZING!
As you all know, the need in Africa is endless, so this amount means so much! Literally... it means we can save lives and give hope and a future to the vulnerable.
After much deliberation, we have carefully allotted these funds to where you intended it to go with your generous one time donations, and where we felt it could have the most impact.
We are so happy to report, that we were able to complete the funding on not just one water source, but TWO! One has already been completed (and I am aching to share that update with you - stay tuned tomorrow!), and the other is currently in the works.
Additionally, we were able to top up our Feeding Program account to nourish some bellies, make improvements in living conditions and provide some necessary health care. We look forward to updating you on this in a month's time.
Over and above all that, we were able to set some money aside for the 170 children of Mogra, Kenya, (to update you on later) and....
We were able to kick start a brand new project we have been working on behind the scenes. This program we are really excited about. It's focus will be to provide livelihoods and futures for Mother's who are victims of violence in the DRC.
So you can see - so many lives affected here. Over 1000 lives directly impacted by your generosity! Really, we can not thank you enough, but we hope that over the next few weeks and months, we can effectively show you how your dollars ARE changing the world.
On behalf of those whom we support,
Asante Sana, Merci Beaucoup, Thank you so much!
