Alternative Gift Cards

Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day...birthdays...weddings...it's always a good time to send a gift card to that special person who already has everything. 

You can donate, in their name, for a family in Africa to receive goats, pigs, chickens, solar lanterns, etc.  A very special gift can be made to the "Grow-a-Doc" program, which supports qualified students from under-priviledged communities in their medical training to help build the badly needed capacity for health care in their communities.

The S.I.S.T.E.R.S. of St. Thomas More church in Glendale Arizona have done it again!  At their annual fashion show and luncheon at Arrowhead Country Club on September 16 they listened to an Africa update by Kathleen Harrison and responded generously by donating for jewelry and craft items and alternative gift cards.  HARAMBEE received more that $1,300...money that will go to fund our Grow A Doc program.  We're now supporting NINE Kenyan students, at a cost of $4,500 per year each.

Who we are:

HARAMBEE (“all pull together” in Swahili) is a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization helping those in sub-Saharan Africa affected by HIV.

We do this in a variety of ways:

1. Education here and in Africa to raise awareness.  Click here to see a map showing geographic  proportions of HIV-related deaths worldwide;  you'll see why I am so impassioned about this work.

Give A Great Alternative Gift for Mother's Day, Teacher Appreciation...or GRADUATION!

Below is what we wrote for holiday giving.  But  now it's almost Mother's Day, coincidental with a show of Teacher Appreciation at school year's end, & graduations.  Who needs more STUFF?  Give a gift that every mother will cherish, a gift like no other, a gift that will help change the world.  Same for teachers.  No hand lotion or potted plant ever gave a poor child a future!  Have a special request?  Let us know--we will customize any alternative gift card for any occasion.
