BENEFITING: SEED EFFECT
Four years ago I learned about microfinance - the idea of helping people start sustainable businesses and teaching them business skills instead of just giving a hand out. And I discovered Seed Effect and the amazing work they're doing in South Sudan and we have been supporting them ever since. Just last week I learned how tough of a year it's been in South Sudan - as a newly formed country with major battles being fought between groups - and how much need Seed Effect has to be able to continue their work. So I decided to run a half marathon, 4 weeks from that day, and to ask friends and family help me support Seed Effect - AND for donation given for it, Rick and I will match dollar for dollar and give to Seed Effect! Even better, my awesome employer will match dollar for dollar up to $500! My goal is $1,000 in donations... and that will be $2,500 for Seed Effect!
