What a day!

Thanks to your generosity, 623 families have been supported.

Millions of families around the world worry about school fees, housing, and having enough to eat.

On #GivingTuesday, we asked you to consider helping a family make the journey out of poverty. We challenged our friends and supporters to help 250 families participate in the Plant With Purpose program.

You showed up boldly and generously.

Some generous donors offered to match every gift that came in, so every gift had twice the impact. It was only around noon when we realized we hit our goal of funding 250 families. One of our matching donors extended the offer, challenging us to help 150 families, 400 in total.

By the end of the day, you gave enough to help 623 families overcome poverty.

Thank you so much. We can’t say it enough. Your generosity changes lives and heals the planet.

Every dollar of that will go towards creating lasting change for these families. Here’s what will happen next:

Husbands and wives will join farmer field schools, where they will learn how to grow more food while healing their soil. As their ecosystems improve, they worry less about future food insecurity.

Mothers and fathers will join savings groups, where they will receive training and loans towards starting small businesses or investing in their farms. The family’s opportunities will gradually expand.

Churches in their villages will come alongside these families so they can grow in faith and make great decisions for their families with these new resources.

These families will become walking examples of hope in their community, encouraging their neighbors.
