Just a quick update on some of the giving we’ve done together:
Freedom to Marry – Over $800!
Charity:Water – $3,452!
You may also remember back in the summer we had a drive to celebrate my birthday by donating to fund clean drinking water. Our goal was to raise $3200 and thanks to you, we surpassed that and raised $3,452 to provide people with a basic necessity for life.
I am happy to say that the money we raised has now been disbursed to Ethiopia, where they are beginning work to build clean water and sanitation projects. I am particularly happy that Ethiopia will be receiving the funds, because I have family ties to that country: it’s where my mom was born.
Our Kiva team – $4,825 in loans!
Finally, our Kiva team has loaned $4,825 so far! We’d love to have you join us in supporting folks around the world to get on their feet and make a living with a tiny microloan. It’s so easy, and since the loans are repaid, you can keep loaning the same $25 over and over! Join Kiva here and then join our team!
