Today is Giving Tuesday. It's a day set aside to remind us all of the importance to give back. And for this one day, we have a chance to do something together that we've never done: raise $900,000 in 24 hours to send chicks and goats to small-scale farming families in Haiti.
The best part, though, is if you join us today, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar. That's twice as many goats, chicks and heifers to help families in Haiti lift themselves out of poverty and into lives of self-reliance.
The need is severe: Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Most people live well below the poverty line. But Haiti is also a nation of resilience. Of determination. Of hope.
If we give hardworking families in Haiti the right tools and training—if we reach our goal today—they can build a better future for themselves and their country. But the clock is ticking, and we each have to do our part.
