The Mighty 40!

$4,770 of $8,500 goal

Raised by 35 people in 1 month
THE MIGHTY 12 is now…. THE MIGHTY 40!

In November 2015, 12 young girls, ranging in age from 11 to 13, arrived on the doorsteps of the Magnolia Rescue Center in southern Kenya.  The girls, affectionately known as the Mighty 12, had left their villages to escape Masai cultural practices that would prepare them to be sold as wives and servants to men many times their age.   Sadly, while illegal, this ritual continues in the region.  The result is that our Rescue Center is out of room.   

We need to do more.  And we are! 

The local community has acquired permission to build a new 40-person dormitory adjacent to our Rescue  Center.  My 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is raising the funds needed to construct the new building. We have already acquired many materials and construction has started.  Now we need to raise $8,500  for the acquisition of a water tank, PVC piping, baths, sinks, toilets, bunk beds, windows and doors.

Hi Everyone,

Happy Sunday! I hope all is well in your world. Things are going phenomenally well for the MIGHTY 40!

I can't thank you enough for all of the donations made to our campaign. I'm tap dancing with joy at the fact that we have already achieved the $2500 mark on our way to $8500.

I wish you could all meet the fine girls that we support at the Rescue Center today. All 14 of them have unique dreams and hearts of gold. More than that they are brave, independent, and models for so many other young women who are now scared, suffering, and uncertain of what to do about their circumstances. Were it not for the Rescue Center, some of the 14 would be homeless and others might have simply submitted to their father's pressure to live traditional massai woman's life. A life where they are without freedom and basic human rights.

Right now we are just over the $2500 mark. So if you have any friends that could afford to help the girls with even just $5, That's a HUGE amount! We are all about small donations to reduce the impact on individual donors. Many small donations result in a proportionally larger impact on a group of girls that really need our help.

Please share this Campaign with your contacts and on Facebook if you can.

Best always! And a Heartfelt Thanks!

Eric :-)
