What an amazing day we had on Giving Tuesday! Between 7 and 7:15 a.m. on our Facebook fundraiser alone, we raised $7,585! While we were disappointed to learn from Facebook that they ran out of their matching money in seconds and that we did not get a match despite the determined alarm-setting efforts of several donors, even without that hoped-for doubling, we took in just over $20,000 from 64 donors for the whole day, shattering all of our previous Giving Tuesday totals.

So your Giving Tuesday gifts will fund three full water projects, and in another bit of good news, 10 donors used the day to give specifically to our Drop by Drop Fund, either with stand-alone gifts or by adding 10 percent to their water donation.

We appreciate your recognition of how important it is for us to be able to sustain our mission, and we THANK YOU, everyone, for your enthusiastic support! You truly did Dig Deep to build wells and change lives!
