The last 4 DAYS!!!

October 27, 2019

Hello everyone!  We are in the last 4 days of this fundraiser for the Portugeuse Oral History, a project of the Portuguse Beyond Borders Institute at Fresno State.  We are so THANKFUL for all of your generous support.  We are just 18 donors away from our GOAL of 100 donors.  We are also only 1555 dollars away form a most awesome even amount of 10 thousand dollars.  I believe TOGETHER we can reach this important milestone. Those of you who have generously donated, would you PLEASE be so kind and reach out to a couple of family members or friends, and encourage them to donate at least $10.  PLEASE!  Also remember that we have a match.  Yes, President Joseph Castro has graciously and generously agreed to match dollar per dollar what we raise until October 31st.  If we could reach 10 thousand, then President Castro would match with another 10 thousand.  Thanks, so much. 



Last 5 Day--a million thanks

October 25, 2019

Many thanks to all who have been so generous and donated to this project.  We have gobe beyond our monetary goal, however we are still shy of our donor goal of 100 contributors.  Can we count on you for a donation?  Please!!!

Those who have donated, we thank you so much.  Can we please have you pass the word to family and friends?  We need another 30 donors.  Can you donate or get a family member or friend to please donate at least $10 dollars?  if we receive donations form another 30 donors we will have reached both our GOALS. 

Together we can do it! 

A million thanks
