Hi family and friends!
The Stars & Stripes Fundraiser, in celebration of Independence Day, is back again this year!
All funds, up to $1,000, will be matched by one of our amazing supporters.
You can help us reach our goal by giving $50 (stars) or $13 (stripes) TODAY ONLY, July 5th!
(Secret hint: You can actually give any amount you wish.)
Click HERE to donate.
P.S. We hope all of you were either on the lake or grilling hamburgers yesterday, and not checking your email inboxes... Hence why we're doing our July 4th gig a day late. :)
Where does the money go?
Yebo Life relies solely on the generosity of others to function. Our monthly fundraising goal is $3,000, which pays for operating expenses, including: salaries for our 4 South African team members, an office space, office & ministry supplies, marketing, accounting, travel, phone & wifi, etc. We're currently raising about $2,215 per month—that's 74% of our goal. Unless otherwise requested by a sponsor, current donations are contributed toward Yebo Life's monthly fundraising goal. You can read more about our funding status here.
What's going on with Yebo Life?
Yebo Life is a public benefit organization based in Cape Town, South Africa. We work with local leaders (currently in the Cape Flats) and empower them to rise up to who God has called them to be and to have impact in their communities. As a result, Yebo Life is playing a part in impacting the lives of more than 650 children, youth, and adults annually. We're seeing youth give their lives to Jesus, jobless adults finding employment, children receiving love and provision, and leaders growing and developing their ministries—all on a weekly basis.
How much did you raise from Stars & Stripes 2015?
Thanks to the contributions of many, we raised $758 from last year's Stars & Stripes Fundraiser.
Is my donation tax-deductible?

If you make a tax-deductible donation through our website and would like for the donation to count toward Stars & Stripes, please email confirmation of your donation amount to firstname.lastname@example.org.
