Dear Friend,

What would your life be like on $1 a day?

For a billion people on earth, that's not a hypothetical question. Food, shelter, clothing -- the basic necessities of life are difficult to afford for the world's poorest families.

Most of these families rely on subsistence farming. That's where iDE -- and you -- come in.

Over the last 30 years, iDE's agricultural technology and training have enabled more than 15 million people to climb out of extreme poverty. Our market-based approach to development has generated billions of dollars in additional income for the farmers we serve.

Now we have an opportunity to do even more. Between now and Jan. 8, iDE's board is matching every contribution we receive -- dollar for dollar -- up to $50,000.

Every family deserves the chance to become self-sufficient. Your contribution will go a long way toward fulfilling that goal -- twice as far if you act today.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Andrew Romanoff

Thank you for your support!

Our 51 donors and supporters made this campaign a success in 8 days.

Raised $30,125 out of $35,000

Your $100 is worth $200 until Jan 12

Our board is matching up to $50,000, so your investment is doubled. 

Consider this… Every dollar invested in iDE results in ten dollars in the pocket of a farmer. Think about that for a moment. That’s an extraordinary return.

If you donate before January 8, the 'social return' on your 'investment' is reaching double the amount of families, which multiplies the value created in people's lives exponentially.

If we reach our goal of $50,000 by January 12, we will be able to help FIVE HUNDRED families out of poverty instead of 250.
