2019 GlobalGiving Superstars!

We are pleased to announce that Kids for Kids is a Superstar Organisation going into 2020!

All your kind donations to our projects on GlobalGiving have led to the most magnificent results: a total of $85,056 (roughly £64,845) raised on the platform in 2019!  This amount is a combination of your support giving goats, donkeys, trees, water, and more and $24,618 in Bonus Prizes and Matching Funds generated by the GlobalGiving team throughout the campaigns you all participated in. What a huge amount of essentially free donations that you helped us get!  ….And you know what else?   This total amount raised in 2019 is almost $20,000 more than what we raised on GlobalGiving in 2018  It can’t be said enough – you all are really the Superstars here!

Kids for Kids is proud to be recognised by GlobalGiving with the following badges for 2020:

A huge highlight for Kids for Kids last year was Giving Tuesday on December 5th, where 105 people donated a massive $18,500 in one day alone!  Not only is that huge, but we also received $5,398 from GlobalGiving in matching funds and $5,000 from an anonymous donor who matched donations up to that amount at 100%!  That meant a total of $28,898 (just over £22,000) raised in ONE DAY on GlobalGiving! Can you believe it?! It was the best Giving Tuesday Kids for Kids has ever seen and we are so eager to do even better in 2020.

We must also thank our fantastic regular donors, who have committed to support Kids for Kids by giving a fixed amount of their choosing every month through GlobalGiving.  Regular donations are the lifeblood of Kids for Kids as they provide an amount that we know we can count on, and therefore allows us to plan ahead for our projects. In 2020 GlobalGiving will be matching new monthly donations at 100%, after they have been active for 4 months. This means if you commit to giving $50 every month, after 4 months you will have given Kids for Kids $250 – with the last $50 being an added bonus from GlobalGiving! Any amount you can spare each month would be greatly appreciated in 2020 as we support our eight newly adopted villages in Darfur, as well as focus on our 5 Year Tree Planting Project. Set up your monthly donation here! 

We are so thankful to you all for continuing to support our work through everyday donations as well as participating in the GlobalGiving Bonus Days and Week-long Campaigns. In 2020 there are Four Campaigns that we are eager to take part in, which are listed below for your convenience.  As you can see from the above information these dates are hugely worthwhile!  Thank you.
