Greetings in the name of the Lord!
ALL HANDS FOR ETHIOPIA!!!
In response to the devastating El Nino caused drought that has put the lives and livelihoods of 10.2 million people in Ethiopia at great risk, we have organized a fundraising event that will take place on March 5, 2016, at the Kena Shriners Temple located at 9001 Arlington, VA 22031. While more than $1.4 billion is needed to alleviate the problem, the money raised during this event will be directly used to support the victims of the drought by providing food, water and nutrition supplement through local NGOs who have a proven track record in delivering the critically needed resources in the area. (Attached herewith please find documentation on the current drought situation).
You can save lives!!! We are currently providing opportunities for individuals like you, businesses and organizations to sponsor the event by making any financial donation to support this noble mission. Your donations are tax-deductible through our 501 (c) 3 status as a non-profit tax-exempt organization.
