HOW: Please Visit www.GrowingOpportunitiesInternational.com

This Christmas, please consider making a donation to O! on behalf of your loved ones. GO! will send your loved ones a Christmas card and a letter explaining how your gift to them is helping build Hero Home and change the lives of children in Tanzania forever!

Since April 2010, GO! has been working hard to raise $50,000 for the construction of Hero Home, a home for street children and orphans in Tanzania. Thanks to the incredible support from our volunteers, our private donors and the amazing staff and students at our GO! Schools, we have been able to raise over $35,000.

We are within reach of our goal for Hero Home, but we need your help! GO! is hoping to find 100 people (or groups of people) willing to donat $100 to bring us $10,000 closer to making our dream of Hero Home a reality!
