Building Futures in Malawi Gets a Charity Gift From Google!

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Google grant will boost donations for Football BootsBuilding Futures in Malawi has received a grant from search engine giant Google to get more people to donate money, volunteer to work in Africa and buy charity gifts on our website. The grant has the potential to boost the number of visitors to the site significantly, and more importantly raise more money for our many projects in Malawi. As you may be aware, 100% of any money that you donate goes towards our projects in Malawi – not one penny of your donation goes on admin costs or advertising, so this grant is going to be an enormous help to get more people involved in our projects and aware of what we have been doing in Malawi over the last 12 years. Thank you Google!

BFiM Charity Work in Africa Gets Another Boost Thanks to You

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Charity FootballsWe’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have supported, and continue to support Building Futures in Malawi by purchasing charity gifts, making donations and signing up for charity work in Africa.  The success of the website has meant that we have just received a £500 donation, been contacted by 7 volunteers, have 50 footballs and 5 boxes of sports kit; and someone has contacted us who may potentially be donating a library! This is great news indeed, and it really does help build the futures of those in Malawi! Please keep up the wonderful support and check back to find out what else is going on with our latest project – The Lingadzi Academy in the next blog post.

Unusual Auction Raises Money For BFIM Library Project

Monday, August 16th, 2010

BFIM garden Party 2010The recent Building Futures in Malawi Blues and Rock Garden Party went down a storm. Not only did a larger than ever crowd revel in the unique atmosphere that was electrified by some of the best musical talent in Colchester, the charity gift auction was an unusual turn of events. As regular guests of the BFIM music event will know, each year a cake is auctioned off to raise money to improve the lives of children in Malawi, but this year there was a surprise in store for the guests. An employee of sponsors High Position, an Essex based search engine optimisation company, offered themselves up for bidding in return for a night out on the tiles. In good spirit Kerry McCarthy was won by colleague Tobias Bowman and the pair spent an evening drinking fine wine and eating good food, followed by some dancing at a local nightclub. In total the event raised a stunning £5,900 which will go towards the latest project, building a community sports school which includes a secondary school, sports fields, community centre and library amongst many other things.
