Mystery donor offers to match donations for Haiti charity effort

Feed My Lambs Ministry will be having an Island-wide tag day tomorrow in order to raise funds for its important work in Haiti.

Money raised will go toward the charity’s monthly expenses, including paying for a teacher, uniforms and books for the school, as well as food, the completion of a medical clinic and solar panels for electricity.

Linda Rego Adderley said funds raised with go toward the ‘Match Fund’ project, after an anonymous donor pledged to match donations up to $30,000.

“It’s simple, if [someone] donates $20 it becomes $40,” explained Mrs Adderley.

The charity — founded by Bermudian Philip Rego — is also looking for volunteers to help with a trip to Haiti on July 7.

Mrs Adderley said: “We are looking for a teacher, carpenter, masons, students and retirees that can make a difference in a child’s life. If each one reaches one [we can accomplish our goal]. Please help and partner with Feed My Lambs Ministry.”

In addition donations can be made to HSBC Bermuda Dollar Account # 010 876795 001 or US Dollar Account # 010 876795 501. Please make sure to include “Matching Funds” in the note so organisers know the money is going toward this particular fundraiser.
