YOU Started The Girl Effect!
Back in November, we shared about an incredible opportunity we had to compete in The 2nd Annual Girl Effect Challenge, and hundreds of you turned out to participate. Well, the results are in and it’s official: YOU’RE THE BEST SUPPORTERS EVER!! Also, The SOLD Project is part of The Girl Effect for 2013. : ) Here’s what you accomplished:
- 660 of you combined your resources and gave more than $18,000, enough all by itself to fund all our educational programs in Thailand for more than five entire months!
- Your generosity blew away the competition and The SOLD Project finished the Girl Effect Challenge in FIRST PLACE! This means that from now until November 30, 2013, our work will receive 8.3% (one twelfth) of all donations to The Girl Effect Fund. In the past, projects have received more than $30,000 each over the course of the year.
- Bonus: You also elevated The SOLD Project to Superstar status on the GlobalGiving platform! This means that we’re now and forever considered a top-tier organization on their site, making us eligible for corporate matching gifts, additional exposure, and other perks.
Your outpouring of support means the world to us—and makes all the difference in the lives of the children we serve together in Thailand. We couldn’t imagine a better way to end 2012, and we couldn’t be more excited for the year ahead. Thank you!!! With hope, Rachel Goble, President & The SOLD Project Team
