We encourage you to consider this message from The Sole of Africa’s director, Charlie Gay:
If you could solve one problem facing the world this Holiday Season, what would it be? Would you: Wipe out poverty? Guarantee that every child gets a first-rate education? End homelessness? Make war ravaged lands safe from landmines that blow up women and children and stop farmers from growing crops?
Most people secretly fantasize about “pie-in-the-sky” dreams like the ones above. But they don’t act because they can’t wrap their minds around the idea that an “average” person like them could change the world.
But I want you to know that your dream CAN come true. You CAN make the world a better place.
Thanks to people like you, the Sole of Africa Campaign has in the last few months of 2006 helped put new limbs on mine victims; has helped start training hundreds of primary teachers and is teaming up with food agencies to feed starving children as the the world food program pulls out of its commitments citing lack of funds.
The need is great and we need your help right now. It is easy. For only a few dollars you can make a difference. Please donate now! Just $8.00 will feed a hungry child for a month. $12 will clear 4 landmines after Mineseeker has mapped an area. $99 a month for a year will help fit a new state of the art leg and rehabilitate a mine victim. $500K will build a food factory that will receive the crops turning them into nutritional meals to put back into the famine areas for 12c a meal! The point is please just help.
Collectively we believe that the Sole of Africa Campaign is the solution to the major problems in Africa. Organizations and dynamic individuals working together in support of the essence of a country, its people and its land. We know that we can maximize the donations that you contribute as their is a clear action plan with an achievable defined end goal.
The Butterfly Effect states that the tiny changes brought about by a butterfly fluttering its wings in San Francisco have the power to dramatically change the weather conditions in China. The same applies to philanthropy. The actions of one person really do have the power to transform and impact the world. You really CAN make a difference.
Saying YES is an essential step to LEAVING a LEGACY.
Yours in success,
The Sole of Africa
