Dudes and dudettes, I have a proposition for you. Today, for one day only, Global Giving is hosting a special event to raise money for Guatemalan children suffering from chronic malnutrition. With every donation you make, no matter the amount, Global Giving will match it by 30%. Even $10 will buy a day’s worth of milk for 20 babies.
From the site:
45% of Guatemalan children ages 0-5 suffer from chronic malnutrition. The Casa Jackson Home for Malnourished Infants provides in-house and out-patient care to 100s of infants and children each year.
Casa Jackson is hoping to raise $40,000 to provide further in-house and out-patient care for these kids. Their long-term goal is to provide communities in Guatemala with the right education to eradicate poverty and hunger. Seriously, even just $1 helps. And if you need a further push, just check out that cute little Guatemalan baby image. You could save babies.
For more info on what they’re doing, check out this fantastic ABC documentary featuring my buddy Luke Armstrong:
This is my do-good deed for the week before an entire day of St. Patrick’s debauchery. I like juxtaposition.
