ROW!4EveryLastChild

ROW!4EveryLastChild is a Virtual Indoor Rowing Challenge to raise funds for
Save the Children happening between January 1-31, 2020. Our goal is to
collectively row 101,000 km and raise $101,000 to jumpstart Save the
Children's first year of their next centennial helping the world's most vulnerable children survive and thrive.  
The Boston Leadership Council for Save the Children invites anyone who has
access to an indoor rowing machine to create a team or participate as an
individual, sign up sponsors or donors and help us reach our goal to help
children in crisis around the world!

There are more than 1.2 billion (1 in 5) children worldwide living in conflict/crisis
zones at risk for an early end to their childhood. Save the Children, an
international humanitarian organization working in the U.S. and 120 countries
around the world, has a bold ambition to ensure all children survive, learn and
are protected. All contributions (other than the fees for GoFundMe) are tax-deductible and all funds raised go directly to Save the Children. Alternatively, to incur no fees, a check can be sent directly to Save the Children with a Mail-in Fundraising Form available via link on their campaign site or via email at
ROW4EveryLastChild@gmail.com. Save the Children will send receipts for
contributions over $20 US. International participants can donate via credit card
as long as their country allows them to make donations to a US-based company.
