WHERE NEEDED MOST

Hi [Recipient's Name],

This month, I’m teaming up with The Adventure Project to create one job in Kenya or Uganda. What I love about The Adventure Project is that they don’t give hand-outs. Instead, they give people the opportunity to provide for their own families and communities.

I’m trying to raise $____ by midnight on September 30th. If I can get __ people to each give $___ or more, I’m there! 

If I create one job, they will be able to:

  • Receive job skills training
  • Lift their family out of extreme poverty
  • Transform their local community with improved health, decreased hunger and clean water

Can you help me make this Labor Day matter by donating to my campaign?

Thank you so much - I really hope you can join me!

HUNGER

Hi [Recipient's Name],

This Labor Day, I decided to do something impactful -- I’m celebrating jobs, by creating jobs for those living in extreme poverty in Kenya. I am hoping you can join me?

Did you know, 75% of farmer's children in Sub-Saharan Africa suffer from malnutrition? Without irrigation, farmers never grow enough to feed their families -- let alone sell. 

So I decided, I want to celebrate Labor Day by raising $500 to help one farmer gain access to an irrigation pump. 

The pump will help him/her: 

  • Increase their crop yield 500% in one harvest!
  • Grow enough to feed the family - and sell excess produce to approximately 80 people in the community
  • Earn enough to send at least one of their children to school for the first time!

Can you help me make this Labor Day matter by donating to my campaign?

HEALTH

Hi [Recipient's Name],

This Labor Day, I decided to do something impactful -- I’m celebrating jobs, by creating jobs for those living in extreme poverty in Uganda. I am hoping you can join me?

Did you know, every minute, three children die in the developing world because they do not have access to basic medicine - treatments that cost less than a cup of coffee? We know how to save these children, but we need to get medicines into their hands. 

So my goal is to raise $2,000 to help train one woman in Uganda to become a Community Health Promoter. She will learn how to treat and diagnose 800 of her neighbors, and will be bring 60+ health care products into the community. 

The funds I raise will support:

  • Training classes to become a licensed health care promoter
  • Her uniform and bag to carry products into her community (she makes a lot of house calls)
  • An Android phone with specialized apps to help her diagnose and track her patients

WATER

Hi  [Recipient's Name],

This Labor Day, I decided to do something impactful -- I’m celebrating jobs, by creating jobs for those living in extreme poverty in Uganda. I am hoping you can join me?

Did you know over one-third of the wells drilled in the past 20 years in Sub-Saharan Africa are now broken. Crazy, right? It’s because there are no spare parts, tools or trained mechanics. 

But, we can change all that. 

My goal is to raise $4,000 restore water to one village in Uganda - and keep it working. Here’s how:

The funds I raise will support:

  • Fixing a broken well in a village in Western Uganda (bringing clean water to 300 people!)
  • Training one person in the community to become a well mechanic and another to become the well caretaker (creating TWO jobs!)
  • Provide spare parts and tools for future maintenance

Can you help me make this Labor Day matter by donating to my campaign and empowering people with good, life-saving jobs?
