If you haven't had a chance yet to make your donation to help build libraries in Zambia, now is the best time to do so! Our fundraiser ends on Friday. This week, I match one lucky reader's donation (up to a $200 contribution) by making a contribution to Room to Read. Since I cannot win any of the prizes, the reader will get to choose which prize drawings to enter.
Here's what you need to do:
- Visit our prize list
- Come back here and tell me what your three favorite prizes are
- If you made a donation, tell me that too!
- That's it
I'm making a bet that once you see all the great prizes, you won't be able to resist helping build this school. Every donation is tax deductible and enters you to win the prize of your choice.
I will choose a winner randomly from the people who comment on this post before 11:59PM PST on Wed Dec 9. I will announce the results here on Thurs Dec 10 2009. If you win, I will ask you to tell me which prizes on the Passports With Purpose website you would like to be entered to win.
I'm overjoyed to announce that Passports with Purpose raised enough money in one week to build a school in Cambodia! We're not resting on our laurels though - there is so much more we can do to make our school a true resource for the entire community. Each additional dollar that is donated will be used to improve the health of both the students and the overall community. We have updated our goal to $26,000 in order to fund the following improvements:
- Hagar water filter: $300 one-time cost
- 1 "Victory" vegetable garden,: $7,500 funds first two years, $2,000 each additional year
- School nurse: $5400/year
More about The School
We know a little bit more about our school now. It will be built in Preah Vihear, the region that's under dispute with Thailand. We also know that it will open in about six months -- June of 2010 is our current best guess.
I want to thank the very generous sponsors who gave us a great headstart towards our goal by making donations directly to AAfC to help build a school in CambodiaPlatinum Sponsor
