Celebrating Some Wins
We’d like to celebrate the fact that, over the past week, three campaigns tipped and one finished up raising far beyond its total funding goal:
nutreats addresses malnutrition in developing countries by selling a great-tasting, nutrient-fortified snack to parents and children living in tough to reach areas of Sub-Saharan Africa. The snack will be a bar, similar to a granola bar, that is fortified with micronutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, and iodine. In A Taste Test to Fight Malnutrition, nutreats is raising funds to purchase prototypes of its nutritious snack bars. These bars will be used to conduct market tests in Tanzania. Data collected during this market test will go into product formulation later this year. This past week, nutreats’ campaign tipped and has raised $770 to purchase prototypes.
Still with a whole month left in the campaign, Haiti Circle of Friends
(HaitiCoF) has raised $1,605 and is well on its way to the $5,000 tipping point goal. HaitiCoF helps Haitian children that are in danger of being sent to orphanages because their families can’t afford to feed them. It wants to create a small farm to help feed these children so they can be kept out of orphanages and stay with their families. In addition, this provides a way for mothers to be sustainably and healthfully self-sufficient. Women who participate in this program are given the opportunity to run the farm and sell the produce at a local market. Farming for Families in Haiti
is raising funds to start the mini farms.
whydev is creating a platform that enables aid workers from different parts of the globe that feel isolated during their missions to connect and support one another in their work to help out in the world’s poorest countries. This is a peer coaching initiative meant for global aid workers that lack the support they need to carry out their jobs because their organizations lack the resources to help them. whydev matches peer coaches across the world with one another. This campaign to support isolated aid workers across the globe is seeking seed funding to connect at least 300 aid workers to one another for support. whydev has just achieved its tipping point goal, raising $3,250 towards this initiative and with a little over three weeks left, there is still time to achieve the $10,000 total funding goal.
