We are now well over half way to our $5,000 fundraising goal to earn a permanent position on Global Giving's website! We just need $1,875 and at least 6 more donations to make our goal! Tomorrow is the last matching day in the Open Challenge! Starting at 9am tomorrow morning, Global Giving will match online donations of $25 or more to our project at 15%. Tomorrow, if you donate $100, we actually receive $115! If you're still considering donating, tomorrow would be a great time to donate and see your donation go farther! If you need a last minute holiday gift for a loved one, a donation to our project would make a caring gift that also gives back. But Global Giving only has $5,000 reserved in matching funds so make your donation early to make sure its matched. We are so grateful for all of the support so far and are hopeful we can still reach 100% of our goal by December 31st!
During the Open Challenge we are fundraising to establish the first cervical cancer screening and treatment program in the Upper West Region of Ghana. Although cervical cancer is responsible for more than 2,000 deaths among women in Ghana each year, there is no cervical care offered in the region. Our cervical cancer program is critical to the health of women in the Upper West Region. By incorporating screening for cervical cancer into the existing health care system and offering accessible treatment, many women's lives can be saved. If you haven't already, please consider making a donation tomorrow. Click the link below to see more and donate: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/cancer-screening-and-treatment-for-women-in-ghana/
