Even though it was quite a few years back, an unforgettable visit and a short volunteer stint with our organization in Cambodia let Maja Meglic from Brussels, Belgium to celebrate her birthday with a fundraiser. Instead of a party and gifts she started a Birthday Fundraiser to benefit CCDO.
The first donation was from the birthday girl herself in lieu of the money that would be spent on organizing a party. She reached out to her friends through Facebook and Instagram and was pleasantly surprised at their generous responses. So much so that quickly her goalposts were moved to higher numbers and new project ideas. At the end she fundraised over $2,000 from over 50 donors.
She will be sponsoring (and naming) one of our new community preschools. It was an especially meaningful act of kindness as soon after the start of her fundraising Maja was hit hard with Covid-19. She is fully recovered and very grateful.
Seeing that we will not be able to gather for celebrations for awhile longer, consider doing a Birthday or Wedding Anniversary online fundraiser benefiting CCDO. Please reach out and we will set up a unique birthday donate button on our Donate page for you.
