Flabbergasted then Hopeful

12/19/2017

Facebook and the Bill Gates Foundation did not match the donations given on Facebook to ISCOWP on November 28. Apparently, the 2 million dollars allocated for matching was used up in the first few minutes of the campaign.  We know for sure the bulk of ISCOWP donors gave in the first few minutes of the Facebook campaign. Other nonprofits are finding themselves in the same situation; a lot of time spent qualifying for the campaign and then no matching funds.  We are flabbergasted.

The good news is that you, the members of ISCOWP, donated enough funds to feed the babies their grain! Thank you!

The total ISCOWP in-house Matching Gift Challenge is $50,000. Together we have met $37, 592.25.  That means we need to collect $12,407.75 more to complete the challenge. Time is running out. The challenge ends December 31.

Happy ISCOWP herd of 25 rescued cows.

This year we authored, printed and distributed 4000 pieces of educational literature at various events and seminars. We created 80 videos with some published on our YouTube channel ISCOWP 108 which has 1, 559 subscribers. Three new cow t-shirt designs were created and printed and approximately 100 t-shirts sold. Our ISCOWP Facebook page has now 8, 912 followers and 9,185 likes and our ISCOWP Staff page has 1, 163 friends all who are educated daily about cow protection and diet change. And the ISCOWP herd of 25 rescued cows has been cared for nicely.

None of this would be possible if it were not for you, our supportive and generous ISCOWP members. You are the reason we can carry on.  We are hopeful and excited to increase our service to the cows with your help.

Here are some ways your tax-deductible donation can help the cows. We have a gift for you too!
