GambiaHELP is participating in The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG event for the fourth
year! GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our world a healthier and more vital place to live.
GambiaHELP Director Shelby Tarutis reports that the most urgent project GambiaHELP volunteers are working on is developing a poultry farm in Kerewan, one of the most nutritionally disadvantaged areas in The Gambia.  The poultry farm will provide protein for the children, jobs for villagers, and sustainable funding to the school.

These small businesses are then managed and expanded by local women, and benefit their whole communities.

We are delighted that The Seattle Foundation is again including GambiaHELP on its list of nonprofits worth supporting. The “GiveBIG” event is for 24-hours only on Tuesday, May 5th.  All donations made through The Seattle Foundation website on that day will be STRETCHED. We will send an email reminder that morning.

Meanwhile, tell your friends about The Seattle Foundation’s excellent “GiveBIG” program, and tell them about Shelby’s life project of bringing help and hope to The Gambia!

 

GambiaHELP is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c)(3) charitable/educational organization, so your contributions are tax-deductible. 95% of all donations go directly to projects in The Gambia.
