Dear friends and supporters,
Two weeks ago we wrote to you asking to help us to be part or bring us in touch with generous donors to support our work. Especially on the 18th of July. And it is only happening that day! Why:
On Thursday, July 18th, GlobalGiving is promoting the July Bonus Day campaign! And we use the campaign to raise funds for our Ruach Foundation in Nicaragua, because, unfortunately, we are still dependent on generous donors!
After #GivingTuesday, this is the most matching funds infused into a single bonus day in GlobalGiving’s history. And we’re excited for you to be a part of it! GlobalGiving has committed itself to match donations starting at $100 and up to $1,000. The higher the donation, the higher the match:
Make your gift count! Through the bonus you make your gift bigger than just what you give! Donating is easy, by pushing the ‘donate’ button on the page
(Human rights Nicaragua # 28192).
Together we can make a difference!
The Ruach Foundation is a vetted member of GlobalGiving. A registered nonprofit charity in the United States and England and Wales. Donations made by eligible donors in the United States can be claimed as tax deductible contributions on United States tax returns. Eligible donors in the United Kingdom can claim Gift Aid (an extra 25% added to eligible donations by the UK Government) donating in GBP.
What we are able to do with $ 100,-US?
As you know, Loyda, Daniel, Manuel, Maria Helena, Miguel and Jonathan are the core members in our Ruach Community Home in which people with(6) and without(2) an intellectual disability share life together. Ruach works in the spirit of the International Foundation of Ark communities.
- $ 100,- covers the cost of the meals of one resident of our home for an entire month
- For $ 75,- we can buy disposable diapers for Daniel en Loyda during the night as they are not fully toilet-trained for an entire month
- $ 25,- covers the transport costs to enable Manuel and Miguel to attend sessions at the activities centre for a whole month.
