The Lubuto Library Project $20,000 matching pledge challenge -- You can help

LISSA was thrilled to have Jane Kinney Meyers speak at our Symposium on April 2, 2008. Her work is an inspiration to us. Below is a message from her organization, The Lubuto Library Project.

Progress on the Lubuto Library Project $20,000 matching pledge challenge:

Many of you have responded to our Advisory Board member Marilyn Hollinshead’s very generous offer of a 100% match of donations up to $20,000, and we have so far received donations totaling $13,870! As you know, the $40,000 a full match will raise will allow us to begin construction of the next Lubuto Library.

This means we have $6,130 to go! If you recently donated, either during this challenge or just before, we again extend our heartfelt thanks. But if you have considered supporting Lubuto and haven’t yet made a financial gift, please take this opportunity to double the impact of your donation and visit www.Lubuto.org and click "donate now" or mail a check to:

Lubuto Library Project, Inc.
5505 Connecticut Ave., NW, #368
Washington, DC 20015-2601
U.S.A.

Our organization has been able to accomplish so much to enrich the lives of Africa ’s most vulnerable children thanks completely to lots and lots of donations from people like you. Rarely can such a small gesture make such an important impact – and is so greatly appreciated! Please join in and help us raise that remaining $6,130!
