One Last Call to Action: Aura’s House Will Be Closing After Current Projects Fund
I can’t believe that this day has finally come. Once our current three projects to help bright young minds in the Philippines, Tanzania, and India have funded, I will be archiving the site and saying farewell.
Back in 2004 when Aura’s House first launched, I wanted to tap into the power of the internet to see if I could raise $4500 for my sponsored child, Aura Yesenia (9) in Guatemala for a safe, sturdy brick home.
At that time, crowdfunding websites and tools didn’t yet exist so I clumsily created my own, fumbling my way through my first online fundraiser. It was SO much harder than I expected but with grit, stubbornness, and determination, I not only achieved but actually exceeded my goal.
I was encouraged by the friends I “e-met” along the way to continue and that’s what I’ve done for nearly eleven years now. It has been my pleasure to help so many sponsors plan, create, and run their first fundraisers as well.
Through the power of small donations adding up over time from supporters like you who care about helping others gain access to housing, health, education, and opportunities, we’ve managed to raise well over $100K and have successfully funded more than 85 projects on five continents!
It’s time now for me to turn my attention to other projects and goals. I’ll still be helping others learn to crowdfund through my top-rated online course, Crowdfunding Confidential: Raise Money For You & Your Cause (FREE coupon for the first 50 people visiting from Aura’s House) as well as through my blog and via personal coaching. If you’d like help or just to stay in touch (please do!), sign up for my newsletter or drop me a line via my personal website: http://kpalana.com.
I’m incredibly grateful to have worked with you all over the years and I look forward to making a difference in other ways as well. I’m excited to see what the future holds. A million THANK YOUS for all you’ve done and all you continue to do on behalf of needy children.
Best wishes and with much love,
