We Met Our Match!
Beginning in October 2009, we asked you to invest in The Hunger Project (THP) as part of a campaign called "Match Their Courage and We'll Match Your Money." We shared stories of courageous leaders, like Rami Devi Nai, who are charting a new course for the sustainable end of hunger and poverty in their communities, and invited you to express your solidarity by matching their courage and leadership with an investment in THP.
Ten committed THP investors gave $497,000 to match any new year-end contribution dollar-for-dollar. Thanks to many new investors to THP and existing investors who gave additional contributions, we sailed past our goal!! Not only did we meet the match, we raised an extra $230,000 in new money for a grand total of $1.2 million for this year-end campaign!
We are so grateful to have so many committed people be part of our global movement. Thanks to such investment, THP can continue its incredible progress in the 21,000 villages where we work, in full and genuine partnership, with communities to empower them to end their own hunger and poverty.
2010 is a new year with countless opportunities to deepen our work and spread our message of self-reliance and empowerment. With less than six years left to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), there is so much more progress to be made. Make sure you are a part of it!
