Thank You for Supporting HOPE's Kashmir Campaign
By Ambereen Siddiqui - Director
Dear Friends and Supporters of HOPE USA,
I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank you all for supporting HOPE USA's Educate a Girl in Kashmir campaign! Some of you may know that this campaign was a special project in which our organization was challenged to raise $5,000 from at least 40 different donors over a span of three weeks in order to earn a permanent spot on the GlobalGiving website. Due to your generous donations, HOPE USA has graduated from GlobalGiving's Accelerator program and we have earned a permanent spot on their website! This could not have been done without the dedicated support of our regular donor base as well as new donors. We are grateful to each and every one of you for helping us achieve this goal. This is a great milestone for HOPE USA and will allow us to post various projects, grow as a nonprofit organization, and even attract corporate donors.
In regards to the Kashmir campaign you supported, thank you again! We raised a total of $5,636.12 from 48 donors and reached our target before the Accelerator deadline. We will receive disbursements from GlobalGiving on the 25th of this month and can then funnel the money towards the Kashmir home schools that are supported by HOPE USA. Towards the end of December 2018, HOPE's chairperson, Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla will be traveling to Kashmir with her team to visit the home schools and also personally hand out new warm clothes and uniforms to the children. We will be able to update you with wonderful pictures in January. You will also learn how your donations were used to enhance the lives of these students and their teachers.
We are so excited to have earned a spot on the GlobalGiving website and wanted to thank you for making this possible! Trust is a two-way street and we are honored to have earned your trust and will work hard to show you how your donations are making an impact.
We will keep in touch!
