Ways to Help – October 2011

Here are ways we can use your help.

1.  If you Support us Financially!  We recently changed our processor for Donations.  The good news is that it saves us money and can save you time.

If you give online through your Checking or Savings Account, it only costs 25 cents per transaction for us to receive your ACH Withdrawal.  Just click on the GIVE button on the right column of the website and you can set it up to be recurring.

If you give online through your Debit Card or Credit Card, it costs us 2% of the transaction, which is much cheaper than it used to be through our former provider.   Just click on the GIVE button on the right column of the website  and you can set it up to be recurring.

If you give by check, please note that checks should now be made out to Embracing Hope Ethiopia and sent to our new address: Embracing Hope Ethiopia, PO Box 14, Willow Street, PA 17584

2.  Spread The Word!  We need your help in getting the word out about Embracing Hope Ethiopia.  If you haven’t already done so, please like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and then invite your friends to do the same.

To help us along, we are going to be running a special contest on Facebook.  We are going to be giving away some  items made by the Moms in the project to help us get there.   We’ll have 2 necklaces and 1 bag of coffee to give away – so 3 prizes in all to 3 lucky Facebook Fans.

Here’s what you need to do

1. invite and re-invite your friends to Like our Facebook Page.

2. When we reach 500 friends we will have a drawing of all of people who have Liked our page.  Two people will walk away with 1 necklace each ($20 value) and one person will get 1 Pound of Sidama coffee roasted by our moms and packaged in a handmade bag from them.

3.  Talk Up Sponsorship – As we start dreaming of doubling the project we know that we will be needing to double the number of sponsors that we have.  To go from having 32 children sponsored to 60 children sponsored, we will need your help.  Please help us in spreading the word.  We’ve got some great postcards to help spread the word which we’d love to get in your hands to have you spread the love around.  Drop us an email and we’ll send some out to you.
