Help us keep the faith for Yasini’s Education

Yasini’s Emergency Project is Now complete. This was the letter and post we sent out the week of December 12th, the deadline for Yasini’s tuition:
Dear Family and Friends of Aura’s House,

Hello. I know you are busy. I know that you work hard, and money is often scarce. Before you click away, I will get to the point right away: We have until December 12, 2014 to ensure that a bright, enthusiastic young student studying law to better his community in Tanzania will NOT be forced to leave school.  We need to raise at least $1,000 to cover his tuition.

*Last updated Dec. 12 at 8:20PM GMT+1. $1,200.26 raised. THANKS so much to all who have donated. A proper thank you and your rewards will be emailed to you within the next 1-2 days!


 

If you donate at least $10 to this project you will:
1.) Help an individual who will help his family and entire community.
2.) Have done an amazingly good deed and instantly improve your day and mood.
3.) Get an automatic entry into our Holiday Raffle with fabulous prizes to be won worth $190.
4.) Personal FREE links to my two top-rated online courses you can give to a friend or family member as a Holiday Gift (-worth $88, but the Web one alone will go up to $129 in January).
5.) A personal thank you email from Yasini Biggo himself.

If you are physically in Rome, Italy or from The American University of Rome and donate at least $10 (8 euros) to this project you will:
1.) Get everything in the list above, PLUS entered in a raffle to win a 10 euro gift certificate to everyone’s favorite American Coffee Shop and Bakery, Homebaked.


 

Without your help, our 100% success rate WILL come to an end, and a bright, enthusiastic young student studying law to better his community in Tanzania will be forced to leave school and return to the dire poverty that has plagued his family all his life.

I first “e-met” Yasini (He prefers to go by Yacn) Biggo through my Aura’s House partner, Heather who met him through her charity work to help a small orphanage and school in Tanzania. She writes about Yacn: “He is from a very poor background, beyond what any of us westerners think of as very poor. We have had many conversations and he is a forward-thinker, which is needed desperately in Tanzania. 50% of the children in Tanzania do not go to school. There are so many with nothing. This young man wants to study law and get a BACHELOR OF LAW (LL.B) degree to help vulnerable people. He wants to help make change for women and children in his community and his country.” Read more

Please visit Yasini’s Emergency Project and consider donating at least $10 (but ANY amount, even 50 cents will help.) You have the power today to change many lives for the better and get a few rewards for yourself as well. Many thanks in advance for helping in any way you can, by donating and sharing this message.

Wishing you all the best!

Sincerely,
Kristen Palana
(Founder of Aura’s House)

PS. Today (Dec. 11) is Yasini’s 25th birthday. I asked him what his “Plan B” is if we don’t raise the funds for his University in time. He writes, “My plan B is I have to go to ask for loan from people and repay later long after working. My second option is to postpone my second year of university so that I can go find tuition fees and come back later in next academic year and start my second year afresh (however this is my last resort).” (He’d essentially lose a year’s worth of studying and have to take the courses he’s currently in all over again. Please help us help him avoid this scenario. Thanks again!)
