On Giving Tuesday, I launched a fundraiser for the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF). Why the AMF? Because with their mosquito nets they are dollar-for-dollar one of the most effective NGOs in the world today at decreasing/preventing human suffering. And I thought that was a wonderful way for Christians and skeptics to join together in a mutual action of goodwill.
Four people donated to my U.S. fundraiser for a total of $400 (USD) in donations. An additional four people donated to my Canadian fundraiser for a total of $700 (CD).
When I launched the fundraiser, I had said that if I raise more than $1000 (combined) I would donate $500 to the Canadian site. Since I exceeded my goal, I made the donation with a joyful heart today.
While we together raised money for hundreds of nets to protect people against malaria-infected mosquitos, it is also true that only eight people have donated thus far to the fundraiser. If you have benefited from my work, I would be grateful if you would consider including the AMF and our little fundraiser in your end-of-the-year-giving. As I said on the AMF website, Thanks for giving. Christians and skeptics can change the world together!
Here, once again, are the links to the donation sites for the American and Canadian Fundraisers:
