It is never easy to ask for help. However, we have reached an unprecedented cross roads in Liberia and are seeking support from a community that believes in our work. Luckily, there are several ways you can help support, donate, and spread the word about our upcoming Ebola Campaign.
You may already know that we have begun supplying rural communities, public restrooms, as well as a dozen non-Ebola neighborhood clinics with sanitation materials and medical supplies over the past few months. You may also know that in order to continue this important work, we will be launching a month-long campaign beginning December 1st through the website Global Giving.
Global Giving is a platform for nonprofits and charitable projects alike, which comes with several philanthropic benefits that can be explored HERE. To win a permanent space on the website for future projects, we need to raise $5,000 from 40 unique donors by December 31st.
The first week of our campaign coincides with another important campaign on December 2nd. #GivingTuesday is a day to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season and inspire collective action around charitable giving. Coordinated around the annual shopping and spending season, it proves that the holidays can be about both giving and giving back. Consider supporting both campaigns by making a donation on this most important day.
In the meantime, check out our donation page HERE. The campaign features specific and targeted ways to donate to our Ebola related work ranging in gifts as low as $10 to supporting an entire clinic for $500. If you are unable to make a donation, please consider helping to spread the word via email and social media.

I am writing on behalf of everyday gandhis, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization working within Liberia’s war torn community to build and restore peace since 2004. They are running a holiday campaign to raise money for their innovative efforts to fight Ebola in Liberia. In honor of the giving season, I am sharing this message with you in the hopes that you will take the time to read their important message.
The Ebola epidemic is a crisis of unprecedented scale in West Africa. With growing support and magnifying funds being designated for large aid groups focused on eradicating the disease, a need for supporting small, localized and grassroots efforts to support healthcare in rural and traditional communities will be key in ending the crisis.
To respond, everyday gandhis has begun working with local leaders in Monrovia and Voinjama to supply rural communities, public restrooms, as well as a dozen non-Ebola neighborhood clinics with sanitation materials and medical supplies. Their goal with such efforts will be to aid disease prevention, alleviate the stress on overflowing hospitals, and to reduce the risk of future exposure to health care professionals. This means that people can get treated locally for non-Ebola illnesses, freeing beds in treatment centers, while building long-term health and resilience.
It is their hope that with such support, these clinics will be able to stay open throughout the crisis and beyond, lending far reaching benefits to surrounding towns and villages. In order to do so, they are hosting a fundraising challenge via Global Giving with a goal to raise at least $5,000 by 40 donors in one month beginning December 1st.
To donate as low as $10, please visit the campaign page: http://goto.gg/18737
For more information about the organization, visit the website www.everydaygandhis.org Their blog features updates and reports concerning Ebola related work, as well as a Social Media Toolkit to help spread the word.
Thank you for your time, support and generosity this holiday season.
