Help SHI win important funding!

We just received an important message from our planting partner Sustainable Harvest International (SHI). The message is from Florence Reed, founder and President of SHI. As you can see, it asks for help with a contest that can generate SHI important funding.

So here is the message:

Last week, Sustainable Harvest International (SHI) announced the exciting opportunity to turn your $10 donation into $10,000. More than 125 generous supporters responded to the challenge and put SHI in second place on's March Goodness Contest! If you are one of those 125 people who have gotten us this far, I am very grateful to you. Now as the end of the contest draws near and SHI has fallen into third place, I am once again asking for your help!
Razoo - Turn $10 into $10,000!Thanks to an anonymous donor, any gifts received on, beginning today through March 31st, will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1,000! SHI currently has 125 donations, and we need the help of you and your friends to pull ahead of the first place organization that currently has 170 donations!
The organization with the most donor supporters this March will win grants of $500, $1,500, $3,000, and $10,000! A gift of $10,000 would be enough for SHI to fund any of the following projects:

• Support SHI’s work with more than two communities for an entire year!
• Support SHI’s work with over 22 families for an entire year!
• Sustain 100 school village programs for an entire year!
• Plant more than 28,750 trees!

SHI is currently in a tight 3rd place! If you have not yet donated to SHI through Razoo this month, please help SHI win $10,000 by simply logging onto and making a donation. Most important to our success will be for all of you who have already donated or are about to donate or can’t donate now to tell your family, friends and co-workers to make their donation to SHI today. Follow this link to SHI’s profile on and please contribute by March 31st! Please forward this email far and wide with a personal note from you. You can also share information about this effort from SHI’s FaceBook page.

Remember, we can only fund one of the above projects with your dedication and support!

In hope,

Florence Reed
Founder and President

P.S. We would like to once again thank those of you who have already donated through Due to the currently troubled economy, your continued support is urgently needed. Together we are planting hope, restoring forests, and nourishing communities!
