An Update on the Global Giving Campaign


Thank you again for your generous investment in helping Kaqchikel midwives in Guatemala have the resources they need. I wanted to take the time to give you a quick update about the project and the progress that we made on Tuesday.

As of today, 107 donors have given $6,125, earning $1,914 in matching funds from Global Giving. This brings our current total for the project to $8,039.

All of the matching funds are gone, but there is one more way you can help up raise some more money for this project and it won’t cost you a dime! Global Giving is offering a $1000 bonus for the group that has the largest number of individual donors who donate at least $10. The winner will be decided on Oct. 21st. Can you please spread the word about the contest and encourage your friends and family to do two things over the next week?

1. Please encourage folks to sign up for our email updates. We send them out about once a month. Sign up in the lower right-hand corner of our website:

2. Encourage them to give $10 through Global Giving before October 21st. This will not only help fund the project but it will help us in the contest to win the $1000 bonus. Already we are only $6,961 away from funding the project, well over half way there!

You can track our progress easily on this Global Giving leaderboard.

We are so thankful for your support of this project. You are helping to improve the lives of hundreds of women and children. Your investment has immediately been put to good use helping these midwives have access to training, basic equipment & medical supplies. You are helping empower these communities to have power over their own health.

Thank you again for all you have done to help this cause.
