Hello friends and family,
I apologize if you’ve already received this email or have been subjected to my countless posts about this on Facebook but I am trying to get another big push so we can get closer to reaching our target goal before August. I’m raising funds to purchase a plot of land and a building for two new classrooms for a small, marginalized community in Sonargaon, Bangladesh. We’re almost halfway to our goal and could still use your help. It takes five minutes to make a donation and even a few bucks goes a long way in a part of the world that struggles with issues many of us will never experience in the United States. In one of the world’s poorest countries, the marginalized communities of Sonargaon face constant hardships, with limited economic opportunities, human rights violations, hunger, limited access to medical facilities and care, and discrimination. Take a look at the link below and feel free to email me individually if you have any questions.
If you would like to make a donation and avoid the credit card processing fee, you are welcome to send a check directly to Advocacy Project, and all donations are tax deductible. If you wouldn’t mind sharing the link and details with friends and family members in your network, that would go a long way as well. Thank you for your time and support. Take care.
Raising money for down payment on a plot of land for a new school for Bengali children in Sonargaon
Hi friends and followers. I’d like to invite you to check out my newest Rockethub.com fundraising campaign. I’m raising money to help pay for a new plot of land on Mayadip Island in Bangladesh, so that Subornogram Foundation, a grassroots, human rights organization, can build a new school building for the island’s children. The Subornogram Foundation built and runs the island’s only school, which consists of a small, cramped, one-room building. Check out the Rockethub campaign and if you’d like to learn more about the organization, please feel free to watch the videos and check out the photographs. Every little bit helps so even if you can only donate a few dollars, it goes a long way to helping out the children of one of the most marginalized populations in one of the world’s poorest countries. Thank you!
