I need your help in raising at least $500 now to hand deliver to the good people on the ground in Ghana who have been expertly solving this problem for years now. You can watch my video below for more information. (See the lengths I will go to to help move this along?! Subject myself to video! That's got to be worth something! :-)
If you are able to help, even a little, I encourage you to consider two quick reasons to donate now:
Bridges To America Inc. is a legitimate organization that is recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 tax exempt organization. So what? This means that your donations are fully tax-deductible but more importantly you have the assurance that our non-profit operates under the requirements and purview of the federal government and that the funds are used for the stated purpose. I put in LOTS of effort and money up front to get this status precisely to facilitate trustworthy transactions so we can help more people.
2. 50% MATCH CHALLENGE
If you need more incentive to help NOW I am willing to personally match 50% of whatever you donate to any current 501c3 organization you dictate.
Here is how it would work:
- Once you make your donation you send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me to which organization you wish me to make a donation;
- I will then personally donate 50% of the amount of your donation by the end of 2012. Sooner if I can swing it but I don't want to over-extend myself;
- I will send you confirmation email of my donation to your chosen charity once I am able to make my donation.
**Please note: If you are able and willing to make your donation to Bridges To America without this matching challenge you have my full thanks. My funds are very limited but I am willing to do this because of my strong belief in this effort and need as many people as possible to donate NOW. And sometimes we all need a little extra incentive. Consider this your extra incentive.
I am happy to answer ANY questions you may have about this effort and encourage you to call me 1.415.203.3763 or email me anytime. Sometimes it's hard to cut through the fog of dishonesty and fraud in today's world but I am doing whatever I can to ensure that you are comfortable with who we are and know that your funds are going to great use.
