50 Donors Reached (and Counting…)

April 27, 2011

Thank you to all who have given to our GlobalGiving campaign! We’re so close to reaching our goal of $5,200 to equip our new Resource Center with 5 computers! We’re excited to give the at-risk children of this poor rural community access to the internet and the opportunity to learn computer skills. Learn more about the campaign below or at our official GlobalGiving page.

We only have $377 left to raise before April 30, 11:59 p.m. The great news is that we have exceeded the 50 donors required! As of 6:00 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday, April 27th, here’s where we stand!

Why a Computer Lab?
Without access to computers and the internet, our students are at a serious disadvantage at school and the job market beyond. An Internet-connected computer lab enables these at-risk students to complete homework assignments, learn valuable software, research, and typing skills, as well as pursue niche interests in design, web development, and more. By investing in the education and development of these children, we not only prevent them from becoming victims of exploitation, but we free them to succeed, rise from poverty, and change the future for their families, their children, and beyond.

Why Global Giving?

“Since 2002, GlobalGiving has put an emphasis on maintaining a strong reputation among donors and non-profit organizations. Donors, partners, and corporations know that we carefully vet the organizations whose projects are posted on our site and their donations are safe with GlobalGiving. This is why GlobalGiving offers the GlobalGiving guarantee, in which we not only guarantee that organizations on our site are vetted and legitimate, but that donors will have a valuable experience on GlobalGivingʼs site. If not, donors are eligible for a refund up to $10,000. By becoming a member of GlobalGivingʼs prestigious network, [The SOLD Project] is benefiting from GlobalGivingʼs world-renowned reputation.” –globalgiving.org

It’s not easy to be accepted into GlobalGiving. In addition to a lengthy application process, The SOLD Project needed to prove that we not only had a tangible, impactful goal but also the support of donors like you to back up our work. Thank you for standing with us and helping us change the lives of at-risk children. Please help us meet our goal of $377 before the month of April ends! 3 more days!
