We know that Christmas is the time of giving. We hope you will consider a donation to our work. You can donate online at our website. Paypal is the processor. You can send a check to the address below. We also have a system to accept stocks from the Stock Market. You need to call Gordon for details on donating your stock. We know some have IRA and retirement accounts and the government requires you to draw a minimum legal amount each year or you are penalized. The amount of withdrawal is then income and will be taxed. However, a donation to Charity Anywhere from the IRA or retirement account is not taxed as income and satisfies the minimum withdrawal amount. Again, contact Gordon on how this is done.
Our work this past year has been wonderful. In Ecuador we are presently delivering rugged locally built wheelchairs to the poor with mobility issues. Our goal for next year is 40 chairs per month. The Overland One Foundation has partnered with us on this project. Just last week we delivered in Ecuador 8 of these tough wheelchairs. Go to our website to see how well they are built. This helps employ people in Ecuador and bless those struggling with walking and moving issues.
Our malnutrition program in Guatemala has taken a big step forward by expanding our distribution of Incaperina to 3 other villages near Senahu. We have been serving 200 babies, children and mothers and now will be serving 300. Again, the website has information on this great program. We have partnered with NaruGuatemala Foundation..
We continue to serve the Dominican Republic on the hearing impaired school in Baharuco. We have a group going in March to do more work on the school.
Mexico has taken giant leaps forward with service to Tijuana, Rocky Point and Agua Prieta. These are the cheapest expeditions because we can drive to each. Construction is our main focus. We had over 15 expeditions this year and this coming year will increase to 20.
We do have on our website a report of the funds donated and how they were used. We reported that 93 cents of each dollar goes to the programs. 7 cents pays for the expenses such as warehouse, vehicles, insurance and utilities. We pay no taxes and have no employees.
Again, please consider a donation to help us meet the coming year’s goals and programs.
We thank all the volunteers and donors for their support. We wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope to see you all soon on another expedition. Remember our foundation name is Charity Anywhere. Charity is the pure love of Christ. Our volunteers and donors take the pure love of Christ to the world.
