For the past few months, local CFUW clubs have been raising funds for CARE Canada’s child and maternal health projects in developing countries as part of our annual “International Women’s Day fundraising project”.
So far approximately $3000 have been raised, which is about one third of the way to our $10,000 goal. For each dollar donated, the Government of Canada (through the Muskoka Initiative) will match it with three additional dollars. That means that if we are collectively able to raise $10,000 it will become $40,000 for CARE’s maternal health programs!
With only a month left before the end of our fundraising efforts, we’re asking club presidents to challenge each CFUW member to donate $2 for Mother’s Day to support child and maternal health in developing countries.
Let’s be a part of reaching Millennium Development Goal No.5 by helping improve maternal health through CARE’s projects.
Please address club cheques to CFUW National indicating that the funds are for the International Women’s Day Project 2012 in the memo. Send to our National Office by May 25, 2012:
