A NEW CHAPTER FOR AGUA PURA
We are proud to announce that Agua Pura Para El Pueblo has been invited to join globalgiving.org Global Giving is a highly respected organization that sponsors small nonprofits worldwide and provides training and support for their fund raising efforts. They have very high standards for financial accountability and transparency and it is an honor for Agua Pura to be asked to participate.
It is an honor and a privilege and also a challenge for us to participate; Starting today, for the entire month of December, Global Giving has challenged us to raise $4000 for our program from 50 donors.
The money we raise will be used for our projects:
$40 will provide Water Pasteurization Indicators (WAPI's) for 10 rural families near Coban, Guatemala. $50 will purchase the supplies for 20 Solar Stoves in Oaxaca, Mexico $80 will purchase a water testing kit for a community health worker in Chiapas, Mexico. $120 will build 10 “Rocket Stoves” for families living at the dump in Tutitlan, Mexico. $250 will fund a water and sanitation training workshop in Latin America.
Agua Pura has accepted their challenge and we believe that we can meet our goal of $4000 with the help of our supporters. If our supporters help us and ask their friends to help we can not only reach our goal but win bonus cash awards. In addition, the top fund raising organizations are eligible for additional cash prizes:
The top three (3) projects that raise the most funds will also receive supplementary cash bonuses from Global Giving of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000 respectively. The (1) project with the greatest number of unique donors will be awarded a bonus of $2,000. And there are other cash prizes as well.
