Dec. 1st, Giving Tuesday: Match your gift!


Last year, in the 24 hours of Giving Tuesday, generous people like you blessed the work of ODIM Guatemala with $22,500. Those gifts made possible (among many things) the launch of an initiative to combat malnutrition in mothers and infants that we call, “Healthy Mommy & Me.”

I invite you to join with us in this movement of generosity and encourage you to set a reminder on your "preferred digital device" to give to ODIM Guatemala at midnight (Central Time) Tuesday, December 1.

Why midnight? This is a global match and if we don't act promptly, Asia, Africa and Europe will claim the $1 million in match money before we even get up and have our morning Joe!
