I get to see every donation given to Chengeta and each one gives me a thrill. Seeing an unexpected donation for $10,000.00 after a donor read Rory Young's article in Newsweek was a major adrenaline rush! I had to count the zeroes a few times to believe what I was seeing.
A few have given large amounts and their funding has been vital to our organization, but our small donors when added together have given even more. Many smaller donations have touched my heart. One $10 donation meant one man had to walk for a month instead of riding his scooter. Another person gave the last $11 in her bank account. Big or small, each donation is a vote of confidence and lets us know you believe in Chengeta and the work we are doing together.
All donations to Chengeta so far have gone towards our work in the field. That means we don't spend funding on donor incentive gifts and postage. Over the past year I have been researching ways I personally could give back to some of our donors.
By watching YouTube videos I learned how to make simple leather bracelets and key-chains. I couldn't resist learning more advanced techniques. I made book covers, flask covers, knife sheaths with carved wildlife and finally a leather messenger bag.
My Turn to Give!
If you donate $10 or more to my current funding campaign - Join The Kind Army you have a chance to win leather bookmarks, flask covers, hand sewn key chains, a feather bracelet or a raven journal. (If you have already donated $10 to the Kind Army campaign, you are entered in the drawings.)
I will be giving away items each day until the current crowdfunding campaign ends next Tuesday, December 19, 2017. Lorna Moon has already won a feather bracelet! I'm working on a second one.
The Final Give-Away
Next Tuesday, after the campaign is closed, I will give away my messenger bag. The hand sewn bag is 12" x 13" and is worth $350+ It is a sturdy bag that should last a lifetime. I can't wait to see who will win!
Our Goal is in sight. Only $2,700 left to go! We can do this!
