HELP ONE NOW is excited to once again be utilizing Pure Charity’s online giving technology to help with our 2013 Legacy Project – Backpacks of Hope.

The campaign is simple: we will raise $100,000 [$50k online & $50k offline] to empower and resource our six leaders in Uganda, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia & Haiti.  Each leader has different needs for their particular community, so when this Project is completed, we will have funded everything from a community preschool and kindergarten to a computer lab to a year’s salary for several teachers, and more.  For the first time ever, we are incorporating all of our leaders into one campaign, and we couldn’t be more excited!

We will reach this goal by selling 1,000 virtual backpacks for $100 each.  These “backpacks” represent education, opportunity & HOPE for over a thousand kids.

You can GIVE a one-time donation to the 2013 Legacy Project.  Give $100, or $25, or even $5.  Every little bit helps, and every dollar is important.  OR… if you want to do more, you can click on the “Fundraise for this Cause” button and START YOUR OWN campaign!  Rally your tribe together to fund a backpack — or better yet, set an even larger goal to fund 5, 10, 50, even 100 backpacks!  HELP ONE NOW is a grassroots tribe, and we’re nothing without each one of you!  Help us spread the word.  Tell your friends, family, co-workers, church, small group, and social media channels what we’re doing and how they can help.

(Note: In order to start your own campaign, you will need to start a Pure Charity account.  If you’ve never used Pure Charity before, visit their site HERE to get started — you’ll be glad you did).

We need your help to make this project a success.  There’s no doubt that EDUCATION CHANGES LIVES, and so we thank you for supporting our amazing African leaders, our amazing Haitian leaders, and for helping us fill these Backpacks of HOPE.
