Dr. Samuel Twumasi-Ankrah, President of Heritage Christian College in Accra, Ghana invites you and the students at ACU to join the R.U.M.A.D. Challenge, and make their story of transformation become your story also.
Is your answer YES, MAYBE, or NOT SURE? Take the challenge today and your answer is YES!
Thank you for allowing us this opportunity to introduce to you the R.U.M.A.D. CHALLENGE.
Our goal for 2019 is to partner with schools, universities, businesses, and churches around the country, complete the R.U.M.A.D. CHALLENGE, and raise $100,000 for SCHOLARSHIPS for students in Ghana, Africa. We are proud to partner with Heritage Christian College Foundation-USA as our non-profit partner this year.
HERITAGE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE FOUNDATION-USA (www.hccf-usa.org) works in Ghana, Africa and is focused on student education and community development. We are deeply committed to this organization, and we know that once you get to know them and the work they do, you will equally be excited to partner with them as we are.
How does the R.U.M.A.D. CHALLENGE work? We designed the challenge based on one of our most successful fundraising campaigns called the 10-4-10 challenge. It’s effortless to explain, and better yet, very easy to accomplish and raise the necessary funds for a project. Simply put, a team leader invites 10 of their closest friends to each donate $10 to the team goal. When the challenge form is filled out, and the team leader has collected $100 (or more), they then send the form and money back to the R.U.M.A.D. basecamp (you can also choose to use our PayPal account to make your donation). That team has now successfully completed their R.U.M.A.D. CHALLENGE.
We are asking (at least) 10 schools, 4 universities, and 10 churches or businesses to partner with us this year and help us reach our $100,000 goal. So, as an example, if you are a school partner, we are asking each school to get a minimum of 50 students (or 5 teams of 10 students in each) to take the challenge.
We believe that whether you are a student, a teacher, a children’s minister, campus organization group leader, business leader or parent of; that you will accept this fun challenge and help us reach and exceed our R.U.M.A.D. CHALLENGE goal of $100,000. And in doing so, together we can help HCCF-USA reach their goals for community development and sustainability.
So now it’s time to start your challenge and for you to answer the question, ARE YOU MAKING A DIFFERENCE?
The R.U.M.A.D.
