Can you give a tweet for charity this week? There’s less than a week left before @wonderwebby’s fundraising for a microfinance program ends.

Gratefully, over the last several months over $5,000 has been donated online towards a 2 year microfinance program in the Philippines, helping women to work their way out of poverty.

This week is her final fundraising week for an Opportunity International Trust Group and I hope you don’t mind me asking you a very simple favour for this important cause.

Jasmin still needs to raise a further $5,000 (US$4,000) by June 30th to create this microfinance program for up to 30 women in poverty and I’m simply asking for ‘a tweet’ on Twitter this week to help raise awareness about this fundraiser: http://wonderwebby.chipin.com

You can see examples of tweets and find out why she’s asking for help on Jasmin’s blog.

You might enjoy these slides which include links to the online fundraising activities held so far and pictures of Opportunity’s clients. Remember, there less than one week to go so please give generously before June 30th and donations made by Australian residents are tax deductible.

Thank you for your support and for helping to improve the lives of Filipino women living in poverty.
