After weeks of raising funds, communicating with advocates, and urging donors to help out, the HBI Team is proud to announce that we are now an official partner of the GlobalGiving Community after successfully completing the June 2018 Accelerator Program.
GlobalGiving’s Accelerator is a virtual training program and crowdfunding campaign that helps nonprofits take their online fundraising to the next level. HBI is proud to say that we have met GlobalGiving’s rigorous vetting standards for trust and community support.
More importantly, through the support of HBI’s donors, advocates, and volunteers, we were able to raise US$5,001 from 48 donors who made 52 donations in June 2018 for our first crowdfunding project – the La Union Rural Daycare Improvement Project.
The four daycare centers who will benefit from the project are the Bay-O Daycare Center and Tubaday Daycare Center – both located in the mountainous portions of Santol, La Union; the Basig Daycare Center located in Sudipen, La Union, and the San Antonio Daycare Center in Balaoan, La Union. These daycare centers will receive additional educational materials, equipment, training, and support for infrastructure improvements. The project will officially begin its implementation on August 2018 or once we receive the raised funds from GlobalGiving.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the following donors and HBI advocates who made the daycare project possible:
- Engr. Ron Parcon, Engr. Rey Alonzo, Mrs. Fe Lacbain, Mr. Mike Marcelino, and Mr. Val Valdellon of the Filipino Cursillos in Christianity, Diocese of L.A. (FCIC L.A.)
