Giving Thanks — November 2016

Jon Ross on Nov 27th 2016


Dear MicroAid supporters:

I hope all is well with you.  At this time of thanksgiving, I want you to know how much I appreciate your support.

This is the time of year when we evaluate our lives and realize how lucky we are, and how thankful we are, for all that we have.  In so many other parts of the world, every day is a life-and-death struggle against crushing poverty, the natural elements, or man-made horrors.

Through your support of MicroAid, we are making a real and positive difference in the world—helping survivors of disasters rebuild their homes and their lives.  I am so thankful to be the representative of your generosity and good will.  Thank you!

Over the years, MicroAid has helped thousands of people, in dozens of families, return to self-sufficiency after losing everything in a natural disaster.  Because of your donations, survivor-families now have safe and comfortable homes, where kids can sleep and do their homework, and parents can focus on other pressing needs of raising a family, without worrying about where they will live.

And you know, 100 percent of your donation goes toward helping those in need—to the programs that change so many lives for the better.  Overhead expenses are covered by me, the board of directors, and other specific grants.  And MicroAid stays in the field until the projects are done—efficiently, directly, and completely.

So, as we get ready to give thanks—for our secure existence, our family, and our friends—please take a moment to help those less fortunate by making a donation so we can continue this work.

From the bottom of my heart, and from all the people we have helped and will help, thank you.
