ABOUT TENTOESAFRICA - KEEPING CHILDREN IN SCHOOL (ZIMBABWE) CAMPAIGN
------ x ------
VIRTUAL RACE (run/walk/bike/race): Started April 1, 2019 - Ends June 3, 2019 -
Our Goal is 40 Miles each for 500 participants, or teams of 10 would run/walk/bike/race 400 miles!
By virtually joining others to run all the way around the coastline of Africa, with a goal of 5 Miles a week (1 mile a day Monday to Friday), we hope to raise awareness for Ten Toes Africa, Inc and the volunteers that help shape youth development in southern Africa.
Poverty headcount ratio at national poverty line was reported at 72.3 % in 2011, according to the World Bank collection of development indicators, compiled from officially recognized sources, and up to 85% in 2019. 1 in 10 people have a job earning a minimum wage. Children cannot NOT afford to go to school, we have to ensure we keep children in school for their development and well being, keeping them off the streets, away from drugs and crime.
With a recent Cyclone Idai in Mozambique and Zimbabwe that has impacted over 2.5 million people with flooding and potential water-borne diseases, we want to help raise funds to support that need too! $10,000 is our goal, towards providing education & our annual soccer tournament, but also to purchase solar lights (LuminAid.com) to this devastated area! Join us!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
------ x ------
What is Charity Footprints?
Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.
Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.
What is the campaign registration fee?
Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.
The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.
How can I create my fundraising page?
Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.
While registering for the campaign, select the team you'd like to join or create a new team and invite others to #GetFitGiveBack with you.
I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?
All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.
Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?
The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.
That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.
Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.
Who can I contact if I need help?
You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.
How do I change or switch my team?
If you have already joined a team, we do not allow switching of team as team's reports data is dependent on team's composition and changing team may affect a team's performance.
If you still want to change your team (like if you joined a team by mistake) or create your own team, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will switch your team.
