Nuru and Fundraising For a Change

Some of you know about the organization my friends Jake Harriman and John Hancox started to work towards "wholistic sustainable development among the world's rural extreme poor"--Nuru International.

YOU can help--check out the cause and add it to your profile--get the word out to others, and then GIVE. A little bit from many people goes a long way!

Nuru has to meet some agressive fundraising goals by mid June in order to be able to launch successfully in western Kenya this Fall. If Nuru is able to raise $350,000 by June 14th, there is a private donor who is willing to contribute an additional $100,000 to the budget.

If each one of us contributes $50, we will be half way to the $30,000 goal that Nuru has set on its facebook cause page. Click here to contribute to meeting the goal some friends and I set to help nuru raise funds. Many of us can afford a $50 gift, but some of us will be able to contribute more. Will you make a donation and help Nuru to bring hope and deliverance to our brothers and sisters who are living shackled to the chains of extreme poverty?

Remember, if each one of us does just a little bit, it adds up to a lot--and if some of us do more--well, it all just goes that much further.

YOU can make a difference in the lives of others with a simple gift! Will you contribute to the cause?
