On April 10, 2011 I will be running 13.1 miles in Notre Dame's Holy Half Marathon, a certified half marathon run on campus.  I heard about Glimmer of Hope through my RA from my freshman year at Notre Dame, who now works for Glimmer in Ethiopia.  I am asking for donations to help the Dube Bute town in Ethopia, to generally help the town by building schools, medicine, and general help to the village.  

A Glimmer of Hope helps lifts women and children out of extreme poverty in rural Ethiopia. Using an entrepreneurial model it provides clean water, schools, health clinics and micro-finance loans, one village at a time. 100% of all donations go directly to funding these projects. Glimmer’s endowment covers all its operating expenses and even replaces credit card transaction fees. Every dollar donated through Glimmer reaches the people in need. Over the last 10 years, Glimmer has completed more than 5000 projects and improved 2.4 million lives.
