1,000 Pull-ups for Playgrounds for Cabo Verde

Tax deductible

Meet Eddie Esteves! He is 70 years old and challenging you to help him raise $30,000 by 02/15/2023, for Cabo Verdeans United Organization (CVU).

Eddie says, “pull-ups are difficult to do, just as fundraising is difficult to do. However if we all join in, the task becomes much easier to accomplish”. His commitment, as a seventy-year-old man, is to do 1,000 pull-ups. Our ask is for 1,000 people to donate at least $.03 per pull-up (total of $30.00) to help us meet our goal.

Eddie recently joined CVU. We are a charitable organization dedicated to the children of the Cabo Verde Islands by assisting these children to grow strong through play and education. We urge you to visit our website to learn about the wonderful projects and playgrounds we have built in the last two decades.

Eddie has already started his part by completing hundreds of pull-ups thus far. Please check out videos of his progress on our Social Media pages. To support this very important project and organization, please share this GoFundMe with your family and friends.
