Since Operation Broken Silence's beginning, one of our primary programs has been to use visual storytelling and our top-notch fundraising and giving platform to build and sustain a global movement that empowers the Sudanese people. We're in the fight for a better Sudan over the long haul alongside of our Sudanese friends and partners. It will not be an easy or short process. From our Executive Director all the way down to our newest movement members, we understand that our mission will most likely take place over the course of our lifetimes.
I am excited to announce another major step forwards towards building our global movement. Starting today, your fundraising and giving efforts are going global like never before. Operation Broken Silence can now accept donations in over 130 currencies worldwide, and our supporters outside of the United States can now start fundraising pages in their own currencies as well!
So, how does it work? This is where things get even more awesome! Let's take a look at our holiday campaign this year as an example.
Fundraising In Your Country's Currency
If you live outside of the United States and visit one of our fundraising campaigns, you can simply click the currency symbol next to the box you enter your fundraising goal amount into and pick the currency you would like to fundraise in. You can click or tap the below screenshot of our holiday fundraising page setup and see the small green circle where you can chage your currency.
Donating In Your Country's Currency
If you live outside of the United States and visit one of our donation pages, your native currency and applicable address fields automatically display, making it easy for you to give to empower the Sudanese people. And your donation receipt will display the amount you gave in the currency you gave!
On the rare occassion that your country's currency doesn't automatically pop up on the donation page, you can simply click the currency symbol next to the box you enter your donation amount into and pick the currency you would like to give in. It's very similar to how you would change the currency you are fundraising in when you start a fundraising page! You can click or tap the below screenshot of one of our donation pages and see the small green circle where you can chage your currency.
We are 100% serious when we say that we are building a global movement to empower the Sudanese people through innovative programs as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Today is another major step forwards in growing our movement beyond the United States.
