GER to GER Fund’s ITB Fundraising Project via USA Give2Asia.org, an internationally recognized USA 501c3 Charity Organization; Tax Deductible Donations
TODAY’S URGENT FUND-RAISING PROJECT
ITB BERLIN 2015 – EUROPE’S LARGEST GLOBAL TRAVEL EXHIBITION
Today, GER to GER Foundation has been approved by the Mongolian Government, first time ever, to participate in the newly designed and produced “Mongolia” stand at ITB Berlin; Europe’s largest international travel exhibition. This is the first time ever that an independent community based organization has been officially recognized and approved by the Mongolian Government to exhibit among other Mongolian private sector entities. This is a major success for rural communities throughout Mongolia – it has been a long journey and this is the national recognition that we all have been waiting for.
However, owing to the financial structure of our Agency and Foundation operating like a non-profit organization in the private sector (ethically “Giving Back” to rural communities throughout Mongolia), both my colleague and I have been burdening the costs of international operations the last few years from our own local salaries and resources. Today, we clearly recognize that we do require the in-kind and generous support of the international community if we are to participate in this major event and if we are going to expand our humanitarian organization to new regions that desperately need a social economic development initiative like GER to GER.
ll donations generated shall be air-marked to support only the bare minimum costs of participating in this event and produce associated materials in order to strengthen GER to GER Agency and Foundation’s operational works in NE and Central Asia and our Sponsor’s CSR Image Development.
Objectives: Support social economic development via business networking linkage development and promoting investment opportunities with greater industries (tourism, film, etc.); increase public relations (B2B and B2C) and contract signings with travel agents, tour operators, film and tv companies, etc.
Beneficiaries: Mongolia’s Rural Nomadic Families, Communities and International Sponsors
Fundraising Goal (ITB & All Activities): $16,000 USD (up to $20,000)
Fundraising Timeline Frame: Immediate
Fundraising Deadline: January 30, 2015
