Thank you world.... We've reached 50,000,000 MNT!!!
To begin, we would like to say, sincerely, thank you so much.
We are in awe of all of you who are helping to make this possible - and there are a LOT of you -so we thought we would share a little bit about how this is all coming together and to introduce you to ( and thank!) those of you who are working so hard to help bring the project to life.
Firstly we have been fortunate enough to receive a wonderfully generous donation from Maxam Explosives, an excellent corporate citizen who very clearly takes their social responsibility seriously! They came up to the site for a visit and, having seen what it is that we're doing and the people we're helping they were very keen to help out. Their donation alone is buying one of the gers that will form part of the centre!
These guys also picked up the ball and ran with it ( and are still running with it!) with regards to our most recent fundraising event... Movember....
To make things even more special the effort spread to Sydney, Australia where the family of a local Aussie ( our fearless leader for the AFL event) hosted a multi-family garage sale ...the proceeds of which have been donated to the Children of the Peak Foundation. AND... they threw in their footy tipping winnings too....
We've also recently been the recipients of proceeds of a fund-raising kids' Hallowe'en party here in UB - 1.5 Million!!... (pictures of all of these fundraisers to follow when I am not trying to upload from a hotel room in Asia where the Internet is, at best, sporadic!)
And a yoga-in over in Nevada! The proceeds of that one were matched by a local Nevada company to double the bottom line! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
Oh, and let's not forget who we're doing all this for...
Your generosity has already begun changing the community up at the Peak and giving the kids & their families some hope for a better life.
Here's how the totals work out:
17,250,156 MNT in corporate donations
15,572,156 MNT from organized fundraisers
22,085,597 MNT from personal donations
for a total of....
54,907, 909 MNT raised to date....
Now let's go raise the other half!
