Fistula Foundation recently participated in the Raise for Women Challenge, a fundraising campaign launched by The Huffington Post, Skoll Foundation and the Half the Sky Movement, that was designed to draw attention to women’s issues like ours. Participating organizations had one goal: to raise the most money over the course of the campaign in order to win part of an additional $75,000 in bonus donations, which was made available to the top three finishers.
Thanks to incredibly generous donations from supporters like you, Fistula Foundation was able to raise $40,699, putting us in 9th place – not bad at all for an overall pool of 122 organizations! We are incredibly thankful to those of you who donated via this campaign and who created fundraising campaigns of your own to help us in this challenge.
