Hello Friendship Force members around the world! Are you in?
Friendship Force mourns the recent loss of Charlene Terrell, a long-time member of Friendship Force Big Canoe North Georgia and author of the Friendship Force story, “The Other Side of the Mountain: Bridging the Great Divide.”
In honoring her memory and passion, in lieu of flowers, Charlene’s family has requested contributions to FFI. To further remember Charlene and her significant contributions to the Friendship Force family, we are offering a copy of her book with any donation amount to Friendship Force made in Charlene’s memory.
Please provide your information on this form. Books may be purchased by donation to Friendship Force in any amount you choose, plus shipping.
UPDATE - April 25, 2016
Thanks to our amazing clubs and members, we have now raised $78,995 toward our goal of $100,000! We are so close to fully funding the new website and database, but we still need your help! Please encourage your club to donate if they haven’t already. If you haven’t had a chance to participate in the fundraising effort, there’s still time before our July 1 deadline. Any donation, large or small will help us achieve our goal. Thank you to all who have donated, and join in if you haven’t yet! Any amount is appreciated!
If you have questions about how the funds are being used, you can find some of those questions answered on Jeremi’s FFI CEO Blog post.
The 38th annual Friendship Force International World Conference in Vancouver wrapped up in early September 2015 and we came to understand that all of us, individually and collectively, must commit to keep Friendship Force strong and adopt specific goals towards our growth. The future of Friendship Force depends on the seeds we are planting now.
In light of this, we launched the “I’m In!” Campaign to raise funds for a new website and back-end data management system. We want to make sure that we can serve you and the members to come, and we have no time to waste.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 by July 1, 2016 and we are getting close thanks to the generous donations of our clubs and members!
For more information on the database and website upgrade, you can visit Jeremi Snook’s blog at fficeo.blogspot.com.
We couldn’t do this without our wonderful Friendship Force International family and we want to say “Thank You!”
If you’d like to say “I’m In!”, you can do that by donating here.
As our Friendship Force pledge says, “I can make a difference.” We hope that together we can make a difference for the sustainability of the organization we all love.
