Global Fundraising & Giving Update

you're leveraging a powerful new tool on our platform

Posted by Audrey Tetzeli on February 21st, 2018

Hey OBS Movement!

A few months ago, we announced the arrival of a new feature on our site that allows supporters in 130 countries to donate or fundraise to empower the Sudanese people in their native currency. As an organization building a global movement to empower the people of Sudan through innovative programs, we are so excited to now have a giving platform that reflects that.

Since launching this feature, we have received donations from 7 different countries outside of the United States, including Canada, Great Britain, Denmark, Germany, France, and Malaysia. And we also have several new donors and our first international member of The Renewal from Australia!

I think that no matter what walk of life you are from, we can all understand the importance of people supporting you and wanting to see you succeed, no matter what adversities you face in life. Thanks to your support, more people from all around the world can now come together with the people of Sudan and show them that support! By donating to the Endure Primary School or Mother or Mercy Hospital in the Nuba Mountains, we can empower our Sudanese brothers and sisters as they work to build a better future and achieve justice in their country.

If you are also inspired by the resilience of the Sudanese people and want to support life-changing education or healthcare programs as an online fundraiser (from any corner of the globe), you can create your fundraising page today!

Thank you to all our supporters who have given so far this year! And a special welcome to our newest international movement members. We are so grateful for your generosity and compassion.
