Today is the day! The Newman’s Own Foundation $500,000 Holiday Challenge starts at noon!
Here are the goals for today:
- Make a gift to get us off to a healthy start.
- Bonus: For every $500 raised, we’ll be entered to win $2,500.
- Follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
A few days ago, we posted about Damo Sako, a 16-year old beneficiary of our Goats for Girls program in Ethiopia. Her school principal, Awol Bitata, told the IIRR team, “This project is a game changer in many ways. Since 2013, when the G4G project was started, the enrollment in this remote rural school has increased by over 30%, especially girl’s enrollment. But there are still many deserving girls who dropped out of school and I hope IIRR will keep up its good work.”
Please make a gift through the Holiday Challenge today. For every $500 raised, we’ll be entered to win $2,500 and we’ll give more goats to girls and keep more girls in schools.
In the next six weeks, you can help us win funds to support our work. The Newman’s Own Foundation is giving away a total of $500,000 to nonprofits through a series of friendly challenges. Your gift, even if it’s just $10, can be leveraged to win hundreds of thousands of dollars this holiday season.
