Keeping the Donations Flowing Past the Halfway Mark
Posted May 19, 2015 by NICHQ
This is one of a series of posts this month about NICHQ's infant health work, which is being featured in in The Huffington Post's 'The Next 10' Campaign. Learn more about this awareness and fundraising campaign and how you can donate.
It’s halfway through The Huffington Post’s
“The Next 10” awareness building and fundraising campaign
and NICHQ has raised nearly $4,000! We couldn’t be more excited that the cause of reducing maternal and infant mortality by investing in health infrastructure is getting attention.
Your support allows us to continue our multi-sector, multidisciplinary work to reduce infant mortality and improve birth outcomes in the United States. While we hope you will take the NICHQ $50 challenge
and donate to our campaign, we would be remiss if we didn’t shine a light on some of the other great organizations within “The Next 10” campaign working on global infant health initiatives. We urge you to support them as well.
