Thinking Girls School Campaign Success Secures over $65,000 USD

Sun, 12/22/2013 - 19:54 -- Linda O'Halloran

The Thinking Development crowdfunding campaign has just closed, exceeding its target and securing over 250 donors in the process.

The campaign ran for 40 days, from November 12th to December 22nd, and was hosted completely free of charge on the new crowdfunding platform, Zequs. The charity will therefore get the most out of all donations, in addition to collecting gift aid where possible. 

With this base fund, we hope to enter into new partnership negotiations in the new year with several funding and implementation partners, in addition to an army of Thinking Girls school partners!

We have lots more planned in the New Year, including an evening event in London to mark the 4th anniversary of Haiti's earthquake, a book launch, and more videos. For now, though, a sincere and profound thanks from all the volunteers at Thinking Development. We're inspired by all the good wishes and sponsorship, and excited that all the hard work is paying off!

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to all.
