This week’s challenge, brought to you by Dave Hammons (a.k.a. “Joe Stevens”), is to support Opportunity International. And we’re up for that!
The deck is stacked against people in the poorest part of the world, where the saying “it takes money to make money” is the harsh fact that traps people into the cycle of poverty. Opportunity Interational, through its many local projects, is breaking people out of those traps. By restoring vital neighborhood businesses in the wake of disasters, by teaching how to run a business, and by providing the seed-money to make dreams of financial independence a reality for women in countries that refuse to educate females, Opportunity International lifts people into better lives.
The best part of all is that your donations keep on giving. Through its microloan programs, successful projects can be turned around to fund new projects, again and again. This is far more than a basic charity… it’s an engine of hope that keeps running.
As always, your donations will be matched one-for-five, up to a hundred dollars in matching funds, by Caerdwyn, so your dollars will go even farther.
It’s amazing how far a few dollars can go. And we’re going to go there!
