Welcome to "Harvey...Get a Haircut!"
Well, now you see it! Yes, I got the haircut. We raised $5000 so off it came! But, we're not finished because the need is great.
Enough about what I look like. My ultimate concern at this point is the people who have found themselves struggling more than ever as this pandemic rages on. Our world had been making strides in the fight against poverty. Predictions are that we could be set back over 10 years when this is over. Many people in the communities we serve have lost what little employment they had. Natural disasters in some of the countries where Compassion operates have further exasperated the situation. I’m sure you heard about the locusts in Africa that devastated wide swaths of farmland through areas Penny and I visited in Uganda and Kenya.
Let's see if we can raise $8000. More than a whole community will be impacted providing hygiene kits for over 500 children. Alternatively, that amount could serve more than 20 families with each receiving a 4 week food kit, a 4 week hygiene kit and medical screenings for all.
Thank you for your generosity! Please reach out to me if you have any questions or comments. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 403-680-2442.

WE DID IT!!
Yes, we had set the goal for getting a haircut at $5000 and as of 2:00 PM, Sunday, February 7th, we reached $5013! So, the hair comes off...can I at least wait until it warms up a bit?
But let's not stop here. We may have reached a goal, but we're not at the finish line. There are many families out there that need emergency relief right now. So, I adjusted the goal to $7000 believing there is more to come. Make your donations and let's assist Compassion as they fight to raise these families out of severe poverty.

A big thank you to the fourteen donors so far! Since the first email went out two days ago, we've raised $3400! We are creeping ever closer to the goal and it looks like I am going to lose a lot of hair.
But, let's remember that it's not about my hair...it's about the families that Compassion is helping through this difficult time. So, let's see how far we can surpass our goal! Thank you all so much for your generous giving!
