Daughters of Destiny (DoD), a non-profit in Cameroon exists to empower and equip people for lifelong change by addressing spiritual, medical, and physical needs, invite you to join them for a wellness challenge. Between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15., choose a positive change to make in your life and commit to make it happen!
While you are working hard, young and old at Daughters of Destiny are working simultaneously towards theirs.
In addition to wellness, another primary goal of this challenge is to financially help the children in an orphanage that DoD operates. Earlier this year, a few health episodes made clear that an in-house medical personnel and medications are needed at the orphanage. Long hospital trips and expensive bills are not sustainable, especially when time is of the essence. To hire an in-house nurse, his/her salary is only $150/month, and only $500 for every three months to cover preventive care medicines for all the kids. To that end, we are hoping to raise $3800 in this wellness challenge to provide wellness for the children. Don't let it stop at $3800, though, any amount over that will go to a general medical fund for emergencies like trips to the hospital.
Immediate needs of the orphanage:
$1800 / yr for a nurse;
$2000 / yr for preventive medication for children.
Here is how you can join the challenge:
1. Think of a personal goal and commit to keeping it for at least a month;
2. Buy a t-shirt and all the proceeds will go toward the orphanage's medical fund: https://www.booster.com/destined4glory;
3. Donate directly to the fund here;
4. Join us as a team member to raise funds. Rally more to cheer you on and donate to your goal and our cause!
