campaign to watch: tripling the impact (today!) for mom and dad.
David wasn’t born in September. But after watching the September Campaign trailer and learning more about our mission to bring clean water to every Bayaka in Central African Republic, he knew he had to help somehow.
So instead of giving up his birthday, David is using his parents’ birthdays and wedding anniversary, which are all in September. And he’s not just asking for donations in John and Connie’s honor… today (for John’s birthday), he’s matching each dollar donated with $2 — a dollar for mom, a dollar for dad!
“I want to get as many strangers involved as possible. I’m hoping people will find this inspiring and tell their friends to give at least something, since I’m tripling each donation. Matching funds in my parents’ name… it’s one of the coolest gifts I can give to someone else.”
– David Roeske
David’s parents didn’t even know about the campaign until today, which makes the gift extra fun. Happy birthday today to John! And happy fundraising to David… he’s asking personally that we put his money where his mouth is (x2)!
