Hello Beautiful Responders! Raising Up Hope for Uganda (RUHU) began as one home with a reach into the slums. Today, it has over 10 programs.
2021 brought us another year of uncertainty, disruptions, and challenges. It also brought us generosity, perseverance, and growth.
God willing, I will be in Uganda one month from now.
Our projected 2021 RUHU budget was $367,665.
Thank you for making Beautiful Response a part of your giving this year!
We have tried to be particularly honest in our updates in 2021.
Next week Tuesday (11/30) is a day dedicated to giving, a day to celebrate and unleash generosity. People around the globe are inspired by the power that their generosity has in making a positive change in the lives of others.
Our expenses have out paced our donations by about $75,000 so far this year. Red numbers in the budget are always concerning but they give us a very clear goal for the final two months of the year.
The end of the year is quickly approaching, and with it, come some of our biggest fundraising events: the Chili Supper and Giving Tuesday.
You'd think that since I co-founded a non-profit and serve as a pastor, I'd be better at asking people for money. That's like half my life.
But I'm terrible at it.
The final testimony in our series...What "more" is doing.
Last month we shared with you RUHU's goal to "do more" in response to the heartbreaking situations children, especially those in under-resourced countries, are experiencing as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
