Exciting news on the MEJOR front!
We have been selected by the GlobalGiving Foundation to participate in its Open Challenge, a fundraising opportunity for nonprofit organizations working around the world. In order to succeed,
We must raise $5,000 from 40 unique donors by December 31, 2012.
If we meet this threshold, we will be permanently featured on GlobalGiving’s website, where we have the potential to benefit from corporate relationships, exposure to a new donor network, and access to dozens of online fundraising tools. Additionally, we could earn as much as $3,000 in financial prizes for raising the most money.
All funds raised through this challenge will go to our partner project with Expand Peru: providing education and social support to impoverished children in rural Peru.Does the goal sound daunting? As you may know, in Peru, a little goes a long way. Consider this:
- $15 will provide one month’s worth of educational materials for 30 children and their parents
- $40 will support recreational and social activities for one month
- $75 will provide materials for a youth-led community project to improve leadership skills
- $135 will pay the CASA teacher’s salary for a month
