Give Youth a Play in the Wild! Experience

Update posted by Baba Tree International Youth Programs On Sep 28, 2012

Gratitude GiraffeWe thought we'd be writing today with celebration of meeting our matching gift challenge of $1000 in 72 hours, but instead, all of you who donated blew past our challenge and completed our entire goal of $10,000!  Thank you for all your generous support.  We look forward to celebrating with you after camp.  

 

Deep bows,

The Play in the Wild! Team

 

BTW: YES, you can still make donations!  As Gogetfunding.com and Paypal both take percentages out of the total donation, further donations can help us to get an "actual" $10,000 for these youth.

We have a new generous donor from the U.S. who has offered to match, dollar-for-dollar, every donation made to this fundraiser, until 4:30pm on Friday the 28th, and up to $1000!  This is a great time to make your donation because every dollar you donate will be effectively doubled.  We're close to the home stretch folks - let's raise that $10,000!

 

Thank you to everyone who has gotten us this far - we have already covered the equivalent of all the travel costs of our Palestinian students, which we feel is already a huge success.

We just received a new matching gift from a donor in the UK.  They're willing to match, dollar-for-dollar, any donation that comes in within the next 72 hours, until 7pm on September 14th (U.S. Eastern time), up to $1000.

This is a great time to get your donation in - every dollar you donate will be worth two!

Thanks for rising to the challenge!

For those following our progress on Facebook, you saw that we had a donor offer a $500 matching gift, for all donations offered by 3pm today.  Well, it's 11:12am on the East Coast of the U.S. and we far surpassed that $500!  Thank you so much to all of you who rose to the challenge.

Donate $1500.00 Or More

Receive a copy of hand-signed card in the mail with photos of the sponsored youth from the October 2012 Play in the Wild! camp, a Play in the Wild! 2012 organic tshirt, and a signed copy of Play in the Wild! co-founder Catherine Cadden's book, Peaceable Revolution Through Education. AND a Handwoven 24 x 42 Rag Rug which supports FABMRON as well! This handwoven, machine washable, 24 x 42 rag rug was made with pride from recycled fabric by Juana Rios, member of FABMRON (Futuras Artesanal Blackmore de Mujeres Rurales Organizado en Nicaragua) a weaving cooperative of 15 women who live and work together in the small village of El Ocotal, in the mountains above Matagalpa, Nicaragua, one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Each woman of FABMRON is now a technically skilled weaver free to develop and express her own sense of color and design. Profits provide the women with income independent from marginal agricultural surplus and fund otherwise unaffordable health care, school fees, and basic tools. FABMRON was founded in 2009 by Peace Corps volunteer Ivy Blackmore, and her mother, Carol Blackmore, a professional rug weaver who provides looms and training.http://www.fabmron.org/
