Today is BONUS day!
FONTEN has an opportunity to become one of the permanent grassroots organization in the GlobalGiving family. This partnership could provide us with corporate sponsors, networking opportunities and much more! Today is BONUS day. For 24 hours ending at 11:59 EST all donations will be matched (proportionately) with prizes for most donations, most monthly donors and most $$$ within the time parameters. Please share our project small donations go a long way – especially today!
Our project: Provide Therapy to 500 Children in Haiti aims to raise $20,000, enough to fund all our children’s programs for one year including therapy, orthotics and prosthetics at FONTEN clinic, outreach initiatives in remote communities (including Isle A Vache), and support of local orphanages. (Our Clubfoot Correction program is funded through partnership with CURE International).
Men anpil, chay pa lou.
Many hands make the load lighter.
FONTEN Tous Ensemble has been selected as one of the grassroots organizations to compete in Global Giving’s Accelerator Program. We must successfully raise $5000 between now and June 29th in order to be featured on a permanent basis among the amazing projects Global Giving highlights. We are excited for the possibility through GlobalGiving to generate corporate sponsorship, expand our network and reinstate programs put on hold due to lack of funds. For this fundraising campaign we are highlighting our work with children. FONTEN has about 500 child patients each year, almost 40% of our patients! We see many children once or twice a week for regular therapy, others are seen at outreach clinics or one of the local orphanages we support. We provide education for parents and orphanage caregivers on how to care for children with special needs.
