<<First Name>>,

We launched our Puente 2020 fundraising campaign two weeks ago and have already raised >$24,000! If you missed the initial announcement, we are seeking $30,000 to provide bathrooms, floors, and/or water filters to 200+ Dominican families. We're now 80% of the way to our goal for December, but the last stretch is always the toughest.

As a reminder, you can donate a bathroom, floor or filter directly to a family in need this holiday season (more info here). Make your gift in the name of another and we'll send you a certificate you can stuff in their card or stocking -- it's the perfect last minute gift for anyone left on your list.

Please consider donating today to help us cross the finish line, and read on below for additional updates from your friends down South.

  • Our data collection app is now being used in Mexico! Health Outreach Foundation began using our platform in the DR and decided it was essential to their work in Mexico, too.
