Haiti Update 3: YOU did it!

Earlier today, Pat O’Doherty generously committed to match funding the next ?5,000 raised in our Haiti appeal. We were then on ?7,000, and needed to get to ?12,000 to draw down the full ?5,000 in double your money funds from ESB.
I’m delighted to tell you that we are now (5.00 pm Tuesday) at ?12,539, which means a full extra ?5,000 for the suffering people of Haiti. We thank every donor, and we thank Pat.
We’re not stopping here! The needs are enormous, every Euro counts and makes a difference. If you have not done so, please donate now at making sure to change the drop-down to once-off.
Thank you from ElectricAid – we never cease to be amazed by the innate generosity of the entire ESB community.
