You did it! You helped us exceed our goal of raising $100,000 for our Heroes Matching Gift initiative this spring. Together, we raised $105,253.82 in addition to the ongoing giving from our monthly supporters!
Monthly support is essential to helping us meet all our commitments in places like Latin America, Cuba, South Asia, and Eastern Europe. Special generosity initiatives like our Heroes Matching Campaign allow us to expand our work to serve even more heroes.
Because you stepped up and gave, we have already said YES to opening a new training center in Rajasthan, India (on the border of Pakistan), where we anticipate that 30 new leaders will receive training. We have also said YES to opening a new training center in Hungary, where we are now making plans to equip 60 new leaders. And, we are getting ready to say YES to equipping even more leaders in Cuba!
Because we exceeded our goal, our executive team is also contemplating even more ways we can expand our work. We are able to do this because you said YES. On behalf our team, I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you! And for those of you who are making monthly gifts – thank you, thank you, thank you for your faithful giving.
This June, we will be telling you more about our leaders around the world who are helping make this work happen. We can’t wait to share their stories and more with you. Thank you for helping us train more leaders to change the world. We are so encouraged by your generosity!
For the Heroes we serve,
Dr. Rick Thompson
President, Global Action
