Fundraiser Brings Attention to African Poverty at 2013 Maccabi Games
The small West African nation of Guinea-Bissau is making waves at the 2013 Maccabi Games. An official delegation from the country is using the games to bring awareness and raise money to combat malaria in the poverty stricken region. Team Guinea-Bissau is competing in basketball, lawn bowling and badminton at the third largest international competition this week. The team is using RallyBound, the premium fundraising software for nonprofits, to power their fundraising efforts. The software provides nonprofits a more social and effective way to raise money for causes and events.
The campaign has already surpassed their goal of $10,000 and now looking to raise double the amount. “Coming to (Guinea-Bissau) and seeing the situation, it’s horrible. You have a large percentage of the kids who are dying because of malaria”, said Yosef Gorowitz when asked about why the Jewish delegation was running the campaign.
