You learned about P4P’s programs, donated from your hearts, and entered to win prizes. You engaged with us every day for a week, learning about health, education, water and economic development programs in Kenya. You watched our video clips. You shared in our successes. You gave generously. Five of you were lucky enough to win one of the daily prizes and Rick Thomas won the grand prize.
And the results? Your generous donations amounted to $17,029. Your gifts were matched by anonymous donors who promised $5,000 in matching donations. Not only did we exceed our $10,000 fundraising goal, we were also able to bring together dozens of people from across the U.S. who would otherwise not have been able to attend a theater event and learn about P4P’s work in Kenya.
Special thanks to Barbara Morkill, committee chair, and Courtney Iseman who created five videos and posters featuring P4P’s programs in Kenya, the centerpieces of our event. Other committee members were Patti Krafft, Sandy Ivers, Stacey Mainer, Megan Hershey, Angie Smith, Linda Hagen Miller, Dia Maurer, Lee Fowler and Peggy Gallinger.
Our virtual ambassadors gave their time and energy to engage family and friends in online fundraising. Hearty thanks to Rosemary Muriungi, Megan Hershey, Mark Kartchner, Eileen Dugger, Linda Hagen Miller, Patti & Wayne Krafft, Paige Lawson, Garry Morgan, Stacey Mainer, Vicky Markussen, Angie Smith, Barbara Morkill, Sandy Ivers, Gordon Jackson, Eryn Brooks, Jasmine Albinson, Haley Lewis, Pat Lynass, Beth Sheeran, Helen Biggs and Lana Weber.
