The African Well Fund is still participating in America’s Giving Challenge, hoping to win one of the daily prizes between 3 p.m. ET each Thursday and 2:59 p.m. ET each Friday until the challenge ends on Friday, Nov 6.
During the daily challenge period that ended Oct. 16 at 2:59 p.m. ET, 22 AWF supporters donated $495. Thanks to additional donations made over the weekend, AWF now ranks 101 out of the 5,621 causes entered in the challenge. Dozens of supporters around the world have also been spreading the word about the challenge through their Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites.
To help AWF win one of the daily prizes in America’s Giving Challenge, make a donation and tell your friends between 3 p.m. ET each Thursday and 2:59 p.m. each Friday until Nov. 6. AWF will next compete for the daily fundraising prize Oct. 22-23.
America’s Giving Challenge, a partnership between Causes, a Facebook initiative, the Case Foundation and Parade magazine, is not focused on how much money nonprofits can raise but on how successful they are at building collective action and inspiring people to donate to their cause. To succeed, the goal is to get as many unique daily donations as possible to the cause each day. Supporters don’t have to have a Facebook account to donate and can donate a minimum of $10 each day of the challenge.
