Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 19th. Have you gotten your dad a present yet? If not, consider giving a gift of lasting hope in his honor. Our Online Village Market Gift Catalog offers multiple ways to give to the greatest needs in the communities where we work, providing families with the vital tools they need for environmental restoration, economic empowerment, and spiritual renewal.
Right now we also have a matching grant opportunity, which means you can DOUBLE your impact! A group of generous supporters has offered to match all gifts dollar-for-dollar up to $75,000 until June 30th.
Here are some examples of ways you can make a difference:
–Your gift of $10, doubled to $20, will plant two orchards to improve the quality of the soil and the water, prevent erosion, and provide families with food and income.
– Your gift of $30, doubled to $60, will provide two fuel-efficient stoves to help families and the environment.
–Your gift of $50, doubled to $100, will plant two family gardens to provide nutritious produce and a source of income to families in need.
When you check out, don’t forget to download and print out a greeting card to give your father so he knows that your gift will be helping some of the world’s poorest people to lift themselves out of poverty.
This Father’s Day, don’t get dad another necktie. Instead, give a gift of hope in his honor that will go twice as far to help farmers who are in desperate need of your support.
P.S. Our matching grant opportunity expires June 30th, so please don’t delay in making your life-changing gift!
