Bricks for Tanzania

$4,731 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 77 people in 13 months
Final Request: The "Bricks for Tanzania" campaign is in its final weeks.  Please see below for the purpose and goal of this effort.  The Salvationists in Tanzania are taking collections up to the end of March, afterwhich the campaign will be closed.  Thank you for taking the time to partner with our people and for contributing to our ability to offer hope to those who need it most.  Please help me to reach my new goal of $4,500.  We have come a long way from my first goal of $2,500.  Asante!  Thank you!

The Kilimanjaro Marathon was a great success.  A very difficult race for me with 2600 ft. elevation, but I did run all the way and finished in 5 hours and 11 minutes.  Again, thank you for your moral and financial support. 

The campaign...

Worshipping under a tree, in a simple mud hut or a handmade brick structure is a common experience for many new Salvation Army openings in Tanzania. The people continue until they can afford to build a proper Corps hall measuring 20 ft. x 30 ft., requiring only 600 bricks to set the foundation and walls. Making one brick within the village costs 1000 Tanzanian shillings.  That’s .32p, .44 cents USD or .56 cents CAD per brick.  We are developing a partnership where the Corps will provide 4 windows and 2 doors, THQ will provide the steel roof, and now we need donors to help provide bricks.  We are also asking the 9,000 soldiers in Tanzania Territory to donate the cost of 2 bricks each during collections throughout March.  Interestingly, the total cost of a building of this nature is 3 million shillings(£960; $1300USD; $1700CAD).  On March 4th, 2018, I ran the Kilimanjaro Marathon (26.2 miles/42 kms) to raise funds for Bricks for Tanzania. Your gift of just £10 will provide 31 bricks; $10US gives us 23 bricks; $10 CAD equals 18 bricks.  Imagine the impact you can make by becoming a donor.  Your generosity will help The Salvation Army meet many needs within the village community such as programming and fellowship for youth at risk, support for families and various life-skill instruction.  Please consider contributing to my GoFundMe page.  Thank you for your support!
