Celebrate Valentine's Day

by saying “I LOVE YOU” via MTRF

Looking for a unique way to convey your Valentine's Day sentiments to friends & loved ones? This year, why not break from the “candy & flowers” traditions? After all, they both quickly disappear (the former sooner than the latter, in many cases). 😉 What would warm a loved one’s heart MORE than knowing your expression of LOVE for them was extended to a child &/or family in need? That’s where MTRF's “IN LIEU OF FLOWERS” program takes center stage!

Why not change up your traditional Valentine's gift by making a donation to MTRF in a loved one's name?

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’ve added four unique ways to say “I LOVE YOU” through the Mark & Trina Ramsey Foundation’s online Donation Center!  (Click HERE to check them out).

Your $30 donation can 'transform' into a MOSQUITO NET "bouquet" (3 nets) or a SCHOOL KIT "bouquet" (2 uniforms, backpack & school supplies). With each donation, we email a personalized “In Lieu of Flowers” Valentine’s Dedication Certificate to serve as your virtual “bouquet”/e-card (example shown below).

For an even longer lasting display of your love & affection, you can donate a WELL ($200) or HOME building supplies ($175)! Both of these “In Lieu of Flowers” donations include a dedication banner with your personal message/photo that will be displayed on the well or home (the certificate will be emailed in time for Valentine’s day & photos of the wells/homes/recipients will be provided upon completion). We're kicking it off by donating a Valentine's Day well of our own (as seen below).

Speaking of Valentine’s day, it’s hard to believe that just two years ago, around this time, we met with our partners in Cambodia & India to strategize on how we could best be of service to those in need. During that trip, we launched our Facebook page & blog, DROP BY DROP, to help spread the word about MTRF’s goals & dreams. Excitedly, we shared updates on our meetings with Cambodian families benefitting from water wells & mosquito nets, along with photos/blogs on our work with children in India (please click HERE for an interesting trip down memory lane). It’s been an intriguing journey thus far & we’re excited about our future opportunities!

In closing, we ask you to please join our Valentine’s Day celebration and express your LOVE, APPRECIATION & GRATITUDE by dedicating donations of education ($30 school kits), protection against disease ($30 nets), clean water ($200 wells) & housing ($175 building supplies) in a loved one’s name.

Now THOSE are the ways that can truly TOUCH another’s HEART at a deep level…….and isn’t that what celebrating Valentine’s Day is all about?!
