04 Jul Holiday Giving Campaign Wrap-Up
Thank you to everyone who participated in our first ever online giving campaign. Online we raised nearly $10,000. When combined with gifts received offline, the sum allows us to bring over our first container of donated medical equipment. Thank you so much for your participation and interest!
This season, be a part of LifeNet’s first-ever individual giving campaign, #45to45.
You want your dollar to go as far as possible. Why should your donated dollar be any different? From November 1st through December 15th, LifeNet donors have agreed to triple-match every single dollar you give up to $25,000 and double-match every dollar up to $45,000 – meaning that $45,000 from first-time donors will become $115,000, which will deliver desperately needed medical equipment to our partner clinics in Burundi.
At indiegogo, you can choose from a range of giving options – from financing a glucometer that will test patients for diabetes to sponsoring an entire clinic – and every option will be available to purchase as a holiday gift, accompanied by a LifeNet card explaining the gift and its impact on the communities where we work. We’ll place the equipment with individual clinics under a rent-to-own program, in which clinics will gradually purchase the equipment from LifeNet as we invest the repayment directly back into our programming. Every item of equipment is paired with ongoing training and check-ins, ensuring that all equipment is put to use to improve our partner clinics’ care.
We have 45 days to reach our goal, starting November 1st. Clinics themselves have identified the equipment they need the most. Help LifeNet act as the missing link in the supply chain and deliver the goods.
This holiday season, don’t just give the gift that keeps on giving: give the gift that multiples. Our clinics are waiting. Will you join us?
For every gift you purchase, you can send either a free e-card or a free mailed card with your order. The e-card will be sent to you or your gift recipient and will include a description of the gift you purchased and the impact it will have on our partner clinics. If you select a mailed card, available until December 15th, we will mail you a holiday card for you to personalize and send to your recipient, which will also include a description of your gift and its impact.
Be Part of #45to45
Gifts made to the #45to45 Campaign will exclusively support LifeNet’s equipment loan program. We do not track
individual items of equipment from donation to distribution; the gift amount options offered by the Campaign align with market costs of individual items at time of writing, but we’ll use funds raised by #45to45 to both deliver and purchase equipment. Your gift will be pooled with the gifts of others.
