My Campaign is to raise money to go into the general fund towards developing the Kebele of Dube Bute, Ethiopia. One of my very favorite people in the whole world is my cousin Eyasu who was recently adopted from Ethiopia. When you meet him you can't help but smile, he is hilarious and full of life. The village of Dube Bute, where he came from, is a rural area of extreme poverty. If you saw one of the water sights where they draw their water, you wouldn't let your dog drink from it. THAT IS NOT RIGHT! And we want to change that. We have the opportunity through A Glimmer of Hope, to bring 18 new water sights, a health post, school, and veterinarian clinic to the Kebele. We get the opportunity to bring them sustainable life. I can't wait! Its funny as I look back and remember that even when I was a little girl in Elementary School, I used to stand on the corner with a bucket to raise money for orphans in Africa, never knowing I would have 2 cousins adopted from an orphanage in Ethiopia. Now I really do get the chance to make a difference. I am asking you to join me in this endeavor. Will you please consider whatever donation is in your heart to give. Due to the Glimmer of Hope endowment, 100% of your donation will go directly toward the project in Dube Bute. Even the credit card fee is covered. A Glimmer of Hope lifts women and children out of extreme poverty in rural Ethiopia. Using an entrepreneurial model developed by the organization, it provides clean water, schools, health clinics and microfinance loans. 100% of all donations go directly to funding these projects, more than 4,000 to date. Over the last 10 years, A Glimmer of Hope has improved 2.5 million lives. Through photos, video and GPS coordinates, donors personally experience how their contributions, large and small, are changing lives. By supporting my campaign, you can choose to receive email updates throughout the year on the project we complete together and the lives touched by it. A Glimmer of Hope listens to and partners with communities to build and maintain projects, ensuring sustainability. Recently, founders Donna and Philip Berber were ranked #6 globally on Barron's list of The Best 25 Givers, based on effectiveness and impact. "Pure and undefiled religion before God our Father is this; to take care of orphans and widows in need" James 1:27 I greatly appreciate your support of my campaign. On behalf of those whose lives will be forever transformed by your generosity, THANK YOU!
