BENEFITING: MERCY CORPS
EVENT DATE: Sep 21, 2011
Hello everyone! We are a group of 4 students from the University of Maryland who are trying to raise $500 in ONE WEEK to donate to Mercy Corps, an organization that is working on the food crisis in Africa.
We have decided to raise our goal by $150! $150 will provide tools and materials to build one latrine in a school, health center or camp for families displaced by the current drought and food crisis! Thank you all so much!
It is Hunger Action Month.
More than 10 million people need YOUR help!
Just $500 will deliver a truckload of water to a drought-stricken town in northeastern Kenya — enough to meet the needs of up to 650 households for a day! Please help us raise this amount of money! Imagine how many people YOU will be positively affecting by donating just a little bit of money!
The worst drought in 60 years is occurring RIGHT NOW which has led to severe food and water shortages for more than 10 million people in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. So please donate what you can!
