Happy Monday night, everyone! We've blogged about this before: FIMRC is one of seven new participating members of Aid for Africa, a collaboration between nonprofits serving communities and families throughout the continent of Africa.

As a result of this membership, we are eligible to participate in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). This campaign runs from September 1st to December 15th, and grants federal employees (civilian, postal, military) the opportunity to donate to non-profits focused on health and human human services through a one-time payroll reduction.

We are currently in our final days of the campaign, and could REALLY use your help!

Here's what you can do:

1-Whatever you do to help, do it before or BY December 15th.

2- Visit the CFC website If you have questions and/or are eligible to donate.. Remember that FIMRC's CFC # is 11019.

3-Whether you're eligible to donate through this method or not, please share this with anyone who does qualify. We'd really appreciate it.

Aid for Africa, Combined Federal Campaign, and how you can help FIMRC!

Hello, FIMRC world! Hope the weekend was a relaxing one for you all! In our August 2011 FIMRC newsletter, we shared with you the exciting news that FIMRC was one of seven new participating members of Aid for Africa, where the combined efforts of a number of nonprofit organizations work together to serve families and communities in need all over Africa. We are thrilled to be a part of this, and encourage our supporters to stay up-to-date with this collaboration whenever possible.

FIMRC's newly acquired membership with Aid for Africa  also allows us to be eligible to be a part of the Combined Federal Campaign, where federal employees are given the opportunity to efficiently (through payroll deduction, etc.) donate to non-profit organizations whose focus is on health and human services. The campaign runs from September 1st to December 15th, and we could not be more excited to be a participating organization! As the campaign is now underway, please tell family and friends who might be interested about this program and encourage the culture of philanthropy by word of mouth.

Additionally, FIMRC encourages you to support us in this modern world from the comfort of your own home. Oh, the power of social media! By checking out our webpage, reading our blog, 'liking' us on Facebook, following us on Twitter,  or supporting our cause, you are instantly helping us without having to go too far from your own daily routine. Plus, you'll be able to see what we're up to, read cool articles that we post from time to time, and learn about other great organizations (such as Aid for Africa) that we like and support. We look forward to having you as a part of our FIMRC network if you aren't completely part of it already!

Last but not least, here's just one more way you can help with just a few words: write a review about FIMRC on GREAT Nonprofits and further our visibility for prospective donors and supporters alike.

Thanks for reading as always and have a wonderful day!
