Give a Backpack 2018

$40 of $600 goal

Raised by 2 people in 9 months
I have sponsored children through Mission Without Borders for nearly a decade and have visited and witnessed their work firsthand in Moldova and Albania.  Their mission is "Reaching People For Christ" which is done by working with local evangelical churches to meet the spiritual, educational, and material needs of people living in poverty.

By giving a backpack and school supplies, you are supporting and encouraging children to stay in school- a critical step to breaking the cycle of poverty.  You are also supporting after school programs, tutoring, and a hot meal provided by local churches in many communities .

Each backpack filled with school supplies costs about $25.  I would like to send at least 24 backpacks by September 1st ($600).  Here's the good part...

Every donation will be MATCHED (up to $600!)

If you donate $10 through this gofundme page- Mission Without Borders will receive $20.  If you give $100- then 8 backpacks will be donated ($200).  But your donations are needed BEFORE September 1 to qualify for this matching grant.  Please be generous and help Mission Without Borders help more children this year!  

Child and family sponsorships are also available!  Learn more or sign up at the Mission Without Borders website.

Every dollar donated will be matched (up to the $600 goal!) If you donate one backpack ($25) Mission Without Borders will receive $50 when matched.

There are 58 days left until September 1. That means that we need to raise about $10 a day to reach the goal of $580. $10 is a meal for one at a sit down restaurant. I have 423 friends on Facebook. If every friend gave $2, this goal would be reached tomorrow! Please consider what you can do to help.

If you can't give today, please SHARE this fundraiser on Facebook, twitter, email, or other social media.

Child and family sponsors are also needed (start at just a $25/month commitment) Read about the transformation in Anabela's life and see what a difference you can make in the life of a child ( https://www.facebook.com/notes/mission-without-borders-australia/fragile-potential-anabelas-story/2106792419348198/ )!

In less than a month, thousands of children in Eastern Europe will start back to school. Many children live in poverty and school supplies are out of their reach. You can help encourage a child to stay in school and break the cycle of poverty by giving a backpack full of school supplies. Mission Without Borders will distribute these to needy children and help them get plugged into after school programs and tutoring. Each backpack full of school supplies is just $25 and your donation (made through this site) will be doubled (through September 1st)!
