We received many donations, large and small, and want to thank everyone who made this effort successful. We especially want to thank Walter and Lalita Janke who made this effort possible! We will use these dollars to help to fund our upcoming year-end donation to UN Women and further support building our capacity to raise more for UN Women in the future. This was our first “matching grant” and we hope to do many more in the future. If you are interested in funding a matching campaign or know someone who is please contact Kay Colson at 972.849.9732 or . Your donation counts in the lives of girls and women around the world!
