Giving Brings A New Hope

You did it! We asked your help in bringing Christmas presents to Malawi and you responded. And on top of that you, our supporters, went above and beyond this giving season by purchasing not only what we asked for but also 12 additional kits. We could not be more thankful. Below is what we requested and what you donated:

1 Village or Deep Well Kit- 1 Village Well Purchased

2 Tree Seedling Kits- 3/8 of a kit purchased

3 Chicken Coops- 2.5 kits purchased

4 Crop Seed Kits- 10 purchased

5 Eco-Latrines- 11 purchased

Also purchased: 2 fuel-efficient stoves and ¾ of a treadle pump.

  Lives in Malawi have been changed by your remarkable contributions and we at RippleEffect could not be more appreciative. Thank you for making a difference and helping others. The impact from your actions will be felt for generations to come.

Your Take:

Recently our RippleEffect blog has gotten a lot of attention. Here is what readers have been saying:   “Lucky me I found your web site by accident, and I’m shocked why this accident didn’t happen earlier! I bookmarked it.”   “You can certainly see your expertise ….” “Some genuinely prime articles on this site, saved to fav.”   So if you haven’t logged on to rippleeffect.wsu.edu and clicked on the blog link, we encourage you to get the whole story and see what a donation with RippleEffect can really do.


Village update:


According to the UN and World Food Programme they have started a ‘mobile money’ initiative where money is transferred electronically via phone to the poorest families in Malawi so  that they can purchase local food. If this program works properly, it will open a large opportunity to those whom RippleEffect gives crops seeds. It would provide local businesses with more paying customers, more income, and the ability to buy more crop seeds for next year. This month, Malawi is in the height of the rainy season. So it is a perfect time to plant crops and watch them grow. To make this happen you can purchase crop kits to help Malawians to make the most of this great opportunity.
