Backpacks of Hope is the 2013 Legacy Project from Help One Now. This December, we will raise $100,000 to empower our six leaders in Haiti, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and Ethiopia by selling 1,000 “backpacks” for $100 each.
These will not be actual backpacks nor the physical things that backpacks often carry, such as notebooks or pencils. Rather, we are asking you to invest in what those things represent to students across the world: education, opportunity, HOPE.
Your support will change the lives of students in Uganda, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, and Haiti! The tools that Backpacks of Hope will provide will be unique to each of our six leaders. For example, Pastor Gaétan hopes to open a computer lab and a library. Pastor Jean-Alix will be opening a preschool and kindergarten, allowing older children to attend school rather than needing to care for their younger siblings, as well as allowing the younger children to start their education early. Pastor John in Zimbabwe will be constructing a playground and a study room, as well as expanding his kitchen so he is able to serve even more children in his region.
---->Donate between Monday, December 9th and Friday, December 13th *at least $3* and receive a special set of Saturated Canary digital stamps.
---->When you donate the $3, please **forward** your Pure Charity email (it may not look like a receipt, but it needs to be the Pure Charity email sent to YOUR address after you donate) to firstname.lastname@example.org , subject title BACKPACKS . I will reply with your special, limited time digis attached in jpg format.
---->I will not be placing these digital stamps in my shop. EVER. So, if you want them, you will need to donate to this fundraiser by 12/13/13.
---->Please be patient for the email with your attached digis, as it is sent manually and not like the purchases from my shop. I will try my best to get them out within 24 hours to everyone who donates. Being overwhelmed with emails is a good thing in this situation:)!!
---->Follow Help One Now on Facebook to watch your donations make a difference in the lives of people all over the world.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve others in a big way through the craft community. Together we can give HOPE and continued education this Christmas by supporting the Help One Now initiatives. Merry Christmas, friends!
