Welcome to the party!

Sometimes, you arrive late to the party, and it is a sad thing.  The dip is gone, the chips are stale, and the sparkling conversation has gone flat.  Sometimes, you arrive late to the party, and well, it’s clear that the rest of the guests were just waiting for you to arrive.

Today is a good day to arrive a bit late to the party.  For the rest of today (the rest of the year, actually) you have the opportunity to double or even triple your gift to Ethiopian Orphan Relief‘s year-end campaign.   I will match the first 225.00 in donations through the rest of today.  If you are lucky enough to benefit from employer matching, you could conceivably triple your gift. Think of it–$50 becomes $100 or even $150 almost magically.

You have the power to make a real difference in the lives of real children.  Today, the money you donate for sheets and a blanket could become sheets, a blanket and a bed with   matching funds.  The money to feed a child for 10 days can become money to feed that same child for an entire month.  Most importantly, the money you provide is an assurance that EOR will continue to provide for our partners throughout Ethiopia during 2011.

Thanks to all of you who have joined the party .   You have grown EOR in ways we never envisioned 3 years ago.  For those of you arriving late-welcome!  We’re excited to share our plans for 2011 with YOU!

Enjoy a safe and lovely last day of 2010,
