Fundraising Passes $10,000 with $1,000 Donation From GoFundMe
What a honor to be able share my journey with GoFundMe Team. It was honor for me to be invited to give a presentation at the GoFundMe HQ and to meet CEO, Rob Solomon and his amazing team. I was surprised to receive this email earlier this summer extending the invitation to visit GoFundMe.
In June, I visited the GoFundMe HQ and participated Q & A conversation with CEO Rob Solomon about my journey from having nothing in life to where I am today. There were a group of 30-40 employees there to watch me sign my story and hear it from my interpreter. I am sure that many of them have never been exposed to a Deaf person and the challenges that the Deaf have to communicate with the hearing world.
With the additional support from GoFundMe, our fundraising campaign for the Zambia Deaf Education Summit is doing well, we just broke the $10,000 mark thanks to many small and large donations from friends, educators and caring people who have heard about our work. Thank you to GoFundMe for this amazing support, your fundraising platform is truly and essential resource for non-profits seeking to help others in this world.
If you believe in in our mission too, we'd love to have your support. Every dollar or "share" means a lot! We are half way to go so please help us before the END of JULY 2018. Thank you for your support. https://www.gofundme.com/zambia-deaf-youth-leadership-camp
