We are very pleased to announce the beginning of our “Library Angels” program. This program has been created to encourage folks to become monthly sponsors of the library. The amount given each month is entirely up to the sponsor and can be automatically deducted from the sponsor’s account with the new Subscription button via Paypal, You can sign up for a Paypal account if you do not have one already, it is very easy and is free. In addition for those who use Bill Pay through their bank you can send an automatic donation that way, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the correct setup information.
We are working hard to plan for the future of Hekab Be and this program is one of the steps we are taking to ensure that the library will be in Akumal, for all of the children who want to attend for many years to come. Since the library is 100% donation driven, it is our goal to create regular monthly income to supplement our fundraisers. The money donated will be used for the library’s programs, supplies and teachers salaries which costs about 75% of the library’s operating expenses.
Each quarter we will send out library updates directly to all of the Library Angels so that they can be kept informed on the activities and goings on at the library.
As a bonus, a long time library supporter has issued a challenge to begin the nurturing of this wonderful program:
For every Angel pledging to contribute monthly via Bill Pay or PayPal, I will provide a match, dollar for dollar; up to U.S. $2,000. That is, I will contribute up to U.S. $2,000 if "Library Angels" pledge up to that amount for at least a 12-month period. This challenge is good until December 31, 2011.
Please visit our Library Blog Site to sign up and remember, the monthly donation amount is up to the sponsor. The library is hoping to reach a goal of $500 to $800 per month with Library Angels so that we can keep providing our programs to all the children who want to participate. For questions directly related to the Library Angels program, please send an email to email@example.com. Thank you.
