Building a hope-filled future
for children together.

Dear Friend,

The last quarter is key for us to reach our fundraising goals & meet our grant commitments. This year we have allocated grants totalling $850,000 to 32 Projects doing excellent work with underprivileged communities & their children, an increase of 10% over last year. Your support has given children access to quality education, healthcare, immunization & protection from child labor, child marriage, abuse & gender discrimination. To know details of CRY America supported projects, click here. Thus far, thousands of donors, volunteers & event participants have supported our CRY Walk, CRY Dinner, CRY Holi, Dandia & CRYket events. More donors joined our Monthly Giving Donation Program & our new initiative on Major Gifts has been a success.

Our online campaigns have raised funds & awareness on the issues of child trafficking & the girl child. Our Facebook followers have also increased from 30,000 to 80,000. Thank you for your ongoing support & best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!
