thankyouwednesday

Dear friends,

THANK YOU for your support on #GivingTuesday yesterday — you donated $1,775! We are overwhelmed by your support for our important work.

Don’t worry if you didn’t get a chance to donate yesterday — our donor has agreed to extend the matching window — all donations up to $3,000 will be matched through the end of the week.

You can donate numerous ways —

  • in-person at one of Tariro’s events this week in Eugene, Portland, and Victoria.  Please see our blog for details of the events. We’d love to see you there, and you’ll get a chance to meet Simba and here about Tariro first-hand.

  • online at our Fall Fundraising site — https://givingtuesday.razoo.com/us/story/Fall-Fundraising-Campaign-2016 (note that usual fees now apply)
  • by bank transfer — please email tariro.board@gmail.com for details on how to set up a no-fee bank transfer.

Hope is powerful.  Hope for change.  Hope for a better future.  Hope is what makes us fight.  Hope is what makes us see possibilities when things look bleak.  In Zimbabwe’s Shona language, “tariro” means “hope”. Tariro gives hope to our students – it gives them hope of finishing school.  Hope of going to university.  Hope of getting a good job and breaking the cycle of poverty they were born into.  Hope of being a person in a position to give back.  Hope of being a woman treated with dignity and respect in her community. Hope is why we do what we do.

Thank you for joining us in giving hope to our students.

#GivingTuesday is TODAY!

givingtuesday1

Last year, Tariro participated in #GivingTuesday for the first time as part of our annual Fall Fundraising Campaign, and it was a huge success for us! We are excited to be part of this international day of giving, uniting millions of people across the world supporting so many worthy causes.

This year, we’re doing it again! AND this year, we have a donor who will match the first $3,000 raised!

Razoo, the site hosting our #GivingTuesday effort, is waiving most of their transaction fee through 29 November – that means more of your donation goes directly to Tariro!  Razoo is also awarding an additional prize for the nonprofit with the most unique donors in a specific hour – we’re targeting the 2pm PST/5pm EST hour.  

Please join us TODAY for a big international day of giving at  https://givingtuesday.razoo.com/us/story/Fall-Fundraising-Campaign-2016!

Thank you for your support!
