Tom Thomson – Lake of the Woods – $20,000 raised

As an interlude from news of Clinton Global or action sports heroes, check this great piece of Race4Change news.

Tom Thomson, one of the greatest photojournalists in Central Canada, recently donated a dozen autographed copies of his highly cherished Lake of the Woods photo books to a dozen business leaders. All Tom asked in return was that they made a contribution to Race4Change, and our four partners in women’s empowerment and microfinance: Kiva, Women’s World Banking, the Microcredit Summit, and Jamii Bora.

What happens? Over $20,000 dollars of support comes in from people moved by the personal gift with a heartfelt request.  Very cool Tom – we really appreciate your gift.

Now, $20,000 is a lot of money and we are very grateful for the support, BUT every dollar, every five dollars, every ten dollars will make a difference, so DONATE WHAT YOU CAN!

Your change is their change – no matter what you are comfortable doing!  Your contribution, and your involvement in spreading the word, is the power of one becoming the force of many. If sharing our message is as much as you can afford to give, then bless you. We are grateful, and glad to have you on our team.

    What a creative way to get the big wallets aware of the cause!
    Great idea.
    P.S. I was not able to read the Twitter link on my iphone4. Had to forward the link to my pc at home to get here…
