MONDAY 12/4: THE FUNDRAISER IS OVER – WINNERS WILL BE EMAILED WITHIN THE DAY!
The fundraiser will be held here on my blog from Monday November 27th, 2017 through Sunday December 3rd, 2017.
There are amazing prizes to win so read these details and check them out below!
This year, let’s work together, combine this community’s giving spirit and try to raise $15,000 for Action Kivu!
Action Kivu is a very small non-profit that helps women and children who are victims of the conflict in Eastern Congo. The conflict in Congo has taken the lives of over 5.4 million people since 1998. Rape is used as a weapon of war, with estimates putting the number of rapes in the hundreds of thousands.
These statistics are so difficult, but by working together year after year, we’ve made a concrete different for specific women and children. Each year there are more women entering Action Kivu’s programs and more children going to school. The money raised here makes a real different in the lives of these people.
One of Action Kivu’s projects is a sewing workshop that teaches women to sew. When women graduate from the workshop, they are given a sewing machine and therefore the means to support themselves and their families. This workshop changes their lives in amazing ways and it is your generosity that makes that possible!
This year’s fundraised money will be going towards graduation sewing machine kits for 42 women!
