Happy Birthday, Kids for Kids!
Friday, March 8th, is International Women’s Day – and our 18th Birthday!
“Please celebrate with me!” that is the message from Patricia Parker MBE who founded Kids for Kids 18 years ago! She says “It is hard to believe that since 2001 we have transformed the lives of 500,000 people in 92 villages, but we can’t stop there. Last year was a terrible time for mothers in Darfur and we are all determined to make this year better for as many children as we can. Please will you give a Kids for Kids Birthday Present today? We are determined to adopt eight villages this year, but we need your help.”
This Friday is International Women’s Day and our 18th Birthday, and one of our projects on GlobalGiving is lucky enough to be involved in a campaign which means your donations will go even farther!! YES – DONATE ON FRIDAY 8th AND 30% WILL BE ADDED WHATEVER YOU DONATE!
What better way to celebrate your fantastic support of Kids for Kids then by having your donation matched at 30% by GlobalGiving? Our project ‘Empowering Women to Earn an Income’ is in the running to earn potential funding for the whole year from GlobalGiving. On Friday March 8th starting at 9am EST (2pm GMT) all donations up to $250/£128 (whilst funds last) to this project will be matched at 30%. Set a calendar reminder now and donate this Friday to help us celebrate our 18th Birthday!! Please can you help?!
This Bonus Day is part of a bigger campaign where our Empowering Women Project is in the running to secure funding for the whole year. If you miss donating on Friday you can still donate before 11:59PM EST on Thursday March 14th (4:59am GMT on Friday March 15th). Every penny counts – even a $10/£10 donation will go far, counting as a ‘vote’ towards securing funding. it is not about how much money we raise overall, but the number of individual donors who give! Please help us by mobilising your friends to donate.
Please read the Terms and Conditions for this campaign to ensure you know what’s what: https://www.globalgiving.org/girl-fund-campaign-terms-and-conditions/ Last year this campaign was a huge success, bringing in 111 donations from different people and raising £7,100 ($9,600) and our goal is to raise even more this year – can you help?!!
