We are not only celebrating the new year, we are celebrating the one year anniversary of Penny Appeal USA! Our vision to eradicate cyclical poverty motivated us to fund the USA branch a year ago, and it really has been a great year establishing our domestic and international sustainable programs. We thank you all for contributing to our gradual development and being a big part of our team in 2016!
With your help, we were able to build 3 computer labs to promote digital literacy, collaborate with the Jesse Tree in Texas to build the Galveston App as part of our beyond bagged lunches program, distribute thanksgiving baskets, gift goats to herders in East Africa and India, and established #teamorangeUSA
as our volunteering initiative, partner with @akfoundation to build an orphan village in gambia, as well as water wells around the world, and raise funds to provide food and shelter for survivors of Hurricane Matthew as well as the people of Aleppo.
As 2017 starts, we have many programs and FUN-draising events in mind! Join us in our monthly game night and our bubble ball tournament and help us raise awareness and proceeds for our programs. We look forward to working with you all, and #happynewyear
