Help me "plant seeds" of opportunity. I have the goal to raise $4,900.00 by my 49th birthday on June 21st.
Each year when my birthday roles around I begin to reflect on ALL the blessings I (we) live with everyday! I think of all the women (and men) around the world who struggle SO hard everyday to just acquire enough income to feed their family and hopefully themselves. About 6 years ago I was introduce to Opportunity International. Opportunity International services the extreme poor through high risk loans; and specializes in servicing the extremely impoverished farmers. I can relate to the tough times that farming can bring on. So, my heart-strings are raw towards those who are not only impoverished, BUT impoverished and farming -- it is like a double whammy! Yet, they like us farmers feed those around them. If you are at all involved in the agricultural world you know what I am speaking about.
Currently Opportunity International is running a fund raiser campaign to raise $250,000.00 (with matching FUNDS!) The timing for my little birthday fund-raiser could not come at a more better time!!
Help me turn $4,900.00 into nearly $10,000.00!!
Our support of a fund raiser like this can change EVERYTHING to a rural farmer and her family. With every $360.00 raised we will be providing a farmer and her family the opportunity to invest in her farm, as well as technical training to improve her farming techniques so she can benefit from good harvests, season after season, and unlock a world of possibilities for her children.
If you have questions or want to learn more about Opportunity International you can contact me or go to: www.opportunity.org
Thank you for your support and birthday generosity!!!!
