We're launching a capital campaign to raise funds to support the Casa Girasoles program . . . and we need your help.
Our goal is to raise $120,000 in the next 8 weeks. Super ambitious, I know. But here's the thing - we're really lucky. The supporters who make Health Bridges possible are the best supporters any organization could ever ask for. You've made us the success we are today.
One thing I hope all our supporters know - we've always been very conscientious in how we fund the work of Health Bridges. We've been mindful to the fact that many of the complex issues that are challenging underserved communities, require flexibile solutions.
Its really pretty simple - complex issues require equally complex and integration solutions. And to this end, we've sought funding that will allow us to work in ways that truly respond to local level need.
There aren't a lot of grants that fund flexible solutions. Most grants require rigid reporting on a fixed set of interventions. I don't think that's bad. Outcome data is what helps drive future change. However, flexibility is a "super power" when it comes to responding to need. And, the donors and supporters who provide us with so much of your resource - give us the flexibility.
From our Girasoles Sanos homes for formerly abandoned boys to our work training teams of trainers around Perú in neonatal resuscitation - you've provided us with so much support. And now, more than ever, we need your support. Please consider making a pledge (monthly, quarterly, annually) to support our Girasoles Sanos program and the work we are doing to change the lives of formerly abandoned boys.
Make a pledge today, and thank you.
