YOU can make a HUGE difference!

2017 marks the 12th year of the Kopano Walk for Economic Empowerment! Join a community walking in "kopano" (unity) with a goal of raising at least $50,000. 100% of that will go through PEER Servants to our indigenous Christian microfinance partners around the world and ultimately some of the over 150,000 clients they serve. It will provide micro-loans that enable moms and dads to grow businesses to support their families, churches, and communities. It will educate children. It will support programs that are proclaiming God's love. In short, it will extend a bit more of heaven to the materially poor, and to you as well! Please join us!




It's A Record!

Your generosity has made our 2017 Walk for Economic Empowerment a record setter - the best fundraising Walk we have ever had! And every remaining donation through Labor Day (September 4) will set a new record. June 3 was a GREAT day for the materially poor. Thank you to our walkers, donors, corporate sponsors, churches, and most especially our microfinance partners and their clients for inspiring us with their dreams and hard work. May God richly bless each micro-entrepreneur and student who will be blessed because of your role in this 2017 Walk.



We had a fantastic day at the 2017 Walk for Economic Empowerment. We'll have a final Walk Day tally by the middle of this week, but we're on our way to not only surpass the $50,000 fundraising goal, but possibly have this be our best Walk ever for amounts raised! Thanks to everyone who came and contributed, and thanks to God for the privilege of joining Him in extending more of the kingdom of heaven to earth!


See You Saturday with $50k within Reach!

The Walk is almost here! Registration opens this Saturday, June 3 at 9:30 am with the official Walk start at 10:00 am. We'll be just outside the PEER Servants office on the Lake (at the end of Willard Road just off of North Avenue) in Wakefield. Grab a Honey Dew Donut and cup of warm coffee and set out for a beautiful walk around Lake Quannapowitt. It looks like God is creating a stellar day for us. Come back to the base for games, lunch (featuring Chick-fil-A sandwiches) and our Thank You Drawing (you get an entry for every $250 that you donate or raise) with nice prizes from generous retailers and individuals in Wakefield and beyond. And the best news - our $50,000 fundraising goal is within reach! Please help us get there on behalf of some very inspiring, hardworking micro-entrepreneurs and aspiring students from around the world through your generous support of someone walking (maybe you!).


Generous Honey Dew Donuts is Back!

It's become a tradition - enjoying a delicious Honey Dew Donut and cup of coffee as you register for the Walk for Economic Empowerment. Once again, John Kennedy is providing us with donuts and coffee from his Honey Dew Donuts franchise at 147 Lowell Street in Wakefield - right on the Walk route! Thank you, John, for your generosity over these many years!


Announcing the $5,000 Match

One of the very generous churches that supports PEER Servants surprised us with a $5,000 matching gift. Any donations from first-time donors to PEER Servants will unlock the match, and donors through our Kopano Walk will be the first to qualify. That means you'll get a matching donation ($1 for $1) for every donation you receive from a first-time donor to PEER Servants. As you send your crowdfunding page to those who have been generous to the materially poor for many years, include those who may never have given through PEER Servants before. If your donor's first-time donation helps unlock the $5,000 match, we'll add it to your crowdfunding page, send you a note with the good news, and help you get that much closer to meeting or exceeding your fundraising commitment level!


There's Nothing Like Chick-fil-A!

You won't find a better community citizen than Chick-fil-A! They'll be back at our 2017 Walk with a delicious chicken sandwich for everyone who walks. Thank you so much, Daniel Mitchell, and the fantastic team at the Burlington Mall Chick-fil-A for your generosity and encouragement!
