Another one of my favorite charities won a $50,000 prize by placing 2nd in America’s Giving Challenge (unofficial result). Students Helping Honduras raised $29,647 to date and had 1698 unique donors at the conclusion of the challenge.
The prize money will go towards the SHH Walkathon’s goal of creating a
women’s academy for emotional and financial support for the women of
Copprome. The Walkathon is an annual fundraising event.
I participated in the Walkathon last year and was impressed by the enthusiasm of the students and other supporters. Click here to read about my experience at the event.
This year’s fundraising goal is $500,000. They are off to a great start!
