BENEFITING: EDUCATE LANKA FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2014
I'm running a 3-day Ultra Marathon in Nepal (link to race) in support of Educate Lanka.
Educate Lanka (educatelanka.org) has allowed hundreds of underprivileged, high-potential students in Sri Lanka to attend and graduate from school. The positive impact of Educate Lanka on these families and communities, which have experienced decades of civil war and significant damage from the 2004 tsunami, cannot be overstated. Educate Lanka's model is self-sufficient, but needs scale to fully deliver its critical mission.
I am hoping to raise USD 10,000 through generous donations from friends, family and colleagues. This amount would match a personal donation my wife and I made to Educate Lanka earlier this year.
Please be so kind as to donate and help us meet (or exceed!) that goal!! I have known Educate Lanka's founder as a friend for 13 years, and know he can transform the lives of many hundreds and thousands of families in the future.
Thank you so much, for any and all support,
