April has come to a close and we've just finished adding up the total donations toward our two April Challenges (including those in the mail). Unfortunately we didn't quite hit the target for both challenges. We did pass the first $2,000 challenge (which will be matched!) but fell just a little short of the final $1,000 challenge, raising a total of $2,700 of the needed $3,000.
SOOOOO close! 90% of the way there. That's pretty darn good if you ask me. I'm so thankful to all of you who helped us get so far, but I am a little sad that we didn't quite get there. That's the bad news.
There is some good news though...
I contacted the donor who made the matching challenge and after a little pleading she agreed to give us a short extension. In recognition of Doctor's graduation tomorrow she has kindly agreed to extend her offer until the end of the day tomorrow, May 3rd. That gives us about 36 hours to raise the last 10%, hitting the mark and earning the $1,000 matching challenge bonus.
Now I must plead with you - please donate now to help us reach our goal and to celebrate Doctor's graduation. His hard work and dedication has taken him from a small village school in northern Ghana to a Master's Degree from the University of Utah. We're excited to see what the future holds for him as he continues to pursue his dreams and fulfill his ambitions.
Please join us in recognizing his accomplishments and giving hope to future students. Simply click on over to www.AfricasTomorrow.org

We appreciate all of your help and hope that you will continue to support Africa's Tomorrow and the students we sponsor by continueing to spread the word and follow us on Facebook. Thank you again to all who have helped us get so far already!
