12/08/08 UPDATE: This fundraiser has been highlighted in the latest edition of Dana Roc's Dana Delivered! Ezine. Welcome Dana Delivered! readers! And thank you Dana for helping spread the word!
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
After watching the documentary, God Grew Tired of Us, I wanted to do something to make a difference for Sudan. I'm working to raise a minimum of $2500 for the John Dau Sudan Foundation.
John Dau is one of the Lost Boys followed in the documentary. He is committed to making a difference for his family, friends and fellow Sudanese. Out of that commitment, he began this non-profit foundation to transform healthcare in Southern Sudan. The foundation has already built a fully-functioning health clinic to fight serious health threats to the people there including: malnutrition, malaria, trachoma, guinea worm, HIV/AIDS, cataracts, river blindness and more. The clinic sees and helps an average of 75 people a day! In the first year of operation, it saw over 200 pregnant women and were the first women in Southern Sudan to ever receive prenatal care.
This is all great work and helps move the country toward sustained peace. But much more needs to happen. That's why I'm coordinating this fundraising effort and donated one of my paintings. The individual with largest donation will receive my 12"x24" original abstract painting, Sun's Set.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and secure.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
