After a few weeks of social networking and interpersonal campaigning, the final numbers are in for my birthday wish fundraiser. While the original goal of $1,000 was perhaps overly-ambitious, we did manage to raise a cool $500! That money will go toward further development of our early warning work, establishing partnerships in the field, and networking with other local and international human rights groups working in prevention.

Thank you to everyone who donated and everyone who has otherwise supported us at the Sentinel Project. As a growing nonprofit, any contribution of any size, whether monetary or in-kind, has an impact that’s felt deeply across the entire organization. Your support is always noticed and always appreciated, and we thank you for your continued interest as our activities expand. Keep an eye on us in the coming months; 2012 will be the best year for the Sentinel Project yet.
