These beautiful, poverty stricken children are awaiting our arrival to Marinduque, Philippines. Uplift Internationale volunteers from throughout the U.S., the Philippines and elsewhere, all self funded, will be traveling to Boac, the capital of the island province, in February 2017 to provide life-changing surgeries, fixing cleft lips, cleft palates, and other facial deformities. Uplift Internationale has helped hundreds of children over the years, leading successful missions throughout the Philippines and beyond. In addition to its volunteers, Uplift relies on the generosity of donors like you. Please consider helping to change these precious children’s lives from ridicule to prosperity. Make your gift to Uplift Internationale go further this holiday giving season by taking part in Colorado Gives Day, on December 6, 2016. Please be sure to check out our 2017 Wish List as we are currently in need of several items to make our upcoming mission a great success! Now in its seventh year, Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Community First Foundation and FirstBank have each contributed $500,000 to create a $1 million Incentive Fund again this year. Uplift Internationale will receive a portion of that fund based on how much money it raises during Colorado Gives Day. For example, if Uplift raises 5 percent of the total raised by all participating nonprofits, it would receive 5 percent of the Incentive Fund. Donations are accepted through Uplift Internationale’s ColoradoGives page. You can donate on Tuesday, December 6, or schedule a donation for Colorado Gives Day any time before then. DONATE NOW and make an even bigger difference in the lives of children. Learn more about Colorado Gives Day.
