TWO 4 CHANGE is raising money to purchase mosquito nets that will be distributed to children and families during a time of year when Malaria runs rampant (Monsoon Season, November-January).
As most of you know, Shane and I will be moving to Tanzania in October. We recently started this nonprofit, and thought this would be a great starter project!
REASON WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP
- In Tanzania 60 to 80 thousand people die EVERY YEAR from Malaria. Approximately 57% of those deaths are CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 5.
- The most effective form of prevention and intervention for Malaria at this time, is the use of mosquito nets.
WHAT MAKES ‘TWO 4 CHANGE’ DIFFERENT?
With this first fundraiser, we are not only looking to help as many children and families as possible, but it is also a way for Shane and I to show our supporters how TWO 4 CHANGE plans to stand out from other organizations.
Many organizations ask for donations and leave generous contributors wondering how the money raised is specifically being used, or if the funding actually made a positive impact. While these organizations may do wonderful things, Shane and I believe that when donations of hard earned money are made to help families less fortunate, more than just a "Thank you" is deserved in return.
When you contribute with TWO 4 CHANGE, you deserve more than just a "Thank you". You deserve visual confirmation that your donation was used the way you were told it would be, and you deserve thanks, not only from TWO 4 CHANGE and our board, but from the children and families that you have impacted. You deserve to be a part of the happiness that comes from your generosity from start to finish.

Nothing but net..............mosquito nets that is ;O)
With your help, last week we were able to provide eighty-six children in Korogwe, Tanzania with mosquito nets!
These children will now go in to the rainy season protected from mosquitos. This means less children going to the hospital and even dying from Malaria, such a highly preventable illness.
Also, with the small amount of remaining donated funds we were able to pay two teachers that hadn’t been paid since June. These two teachers come to work every day to teach the children not knowing when they will get paid again. This to me is amazing!!1 Each teacher was given approx. 12.00 USD. But, by the smile on the their faces and “thanks” we received, you would have thought they won the lottery.
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE! -T4C
