Online Slots Company Launches Fundraising Site for African Aid Project
December 21, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News21 December 2007 (London, UK) – www.Slotland.com has launched a website to raise funds for the school and community center they built in Malawi and to bring hope to other nearby villages. While the popular slots and video poker site will continue to fund the center, the new website (www.help-malawi-children-charity.org) has been created to enable the public to make personal donations.
When a small group of dedicated aid workers approached Slotland.com for a donation, the company — known for its generous philanthropy — couldn’t say no. In fact, they committed to providing all construction funding and to supporting the center until it is self-sufficient.
The story of how the Project Team brought a whole village together to build the Umodzi-Mbame School is told on the new fundraising website: www.help-malawi-children-charity.org. The site also explains how donations will be used to assist neighbouring villages. Donations can be made on the site through secure PayPal payment processing.
“So many people have told us how proud they are of what we’re doing," said Slotland’s Martin Smith, "That we provided this fundraising website to give them an opportunity to get personally involved.”
The Project Team has registered a non-profit organization called boNGO Worldwide which is committed to assisting communities develop self-sustaining projects.
“We’ve found that projects initiated by locals have the best chance to succeed,” explains the boNGO Project Team leader. “Faced with increasing numbers of children orphaned by AIDS, the people of nearby Kantimbanye built several orphanages without assistance. What we’ve done is help them build a maize mill which will provide an ongoing income to support their work.”
boNGO’s diligent work has already changed the lives of hundreds of children but there are many more that need food, education and hope. All contributions are gratefully received and, since there are no administrative costs thanks to Slotland.com, every penny goes directly to the Project Team in Malawi.
