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.
  • by check mailed directly to our PO box at PO Box 50273, Eugene, OR, 97405
  • 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.
