Bill Clinton has announced that he will match all donations – dollar for dollar – to the Clinton Foundation until June 25.
“In my travels around the world, I’ve seen too many people who don’t have the tools they need to strengthen their communities and create a better future for themselves and their families,” said Clinton in a recent email to Foundation supporters. “In Rwanda and Malawi, many children are still unable to go to school, many parents can’t afford improvements to their homes, and many farming communities remain at the mercy of the weather.
“Our work is already starting to make an incredible impact in these countries, and I’m certain that, together, we can help them build a stronger future. And that is all because of you.
“Because you refuse to look away when someone is in need, and refuse to assume someone else will solve a problem, we’ve been able to help thousands of farmers in Rwanda and Malawi increase their yields, find better prices for their harvests, and create a more stable future for themselves and their families.
“Your action serves as an inspiration every day, so I am personally offering to match all donations you make by June 25, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000 to help us improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.”
