Kindness, the greatest gift ever with Amazon Smile!
For the past 10 years, GPC has transformed many dark and dull areas in our communities with the warmth of some of the brightest and vibrant colors donated by you. There may be many other pressing issues around us but in an age of uncertainty surrounding global outbreaks, our projects not just help heal the environment better, but also have real health benefits. A fresh coat of paint can protect against mold, bacteria, and deadly germs, affecting physical and psychological wellbeing. We treat our paint with insecticides to prevent mosquitoes, causing Malaria and other viruses like Zika and Yellow Fever that kill more than 6 million people per year.
It’s because of your unconditional love and confidence shown in our cause, we reached more than 44 countries around the world using more than 396450 gallons of paint donations. Every Second we see these numbers growing and their impact rising in the communities.
One gallon of paint could pollute up to 250,000 gallons of drinking water if disposed of improperly. In the past 10 years, we have recycled more than 4,570,884 lbs of paint, saving the living conditions of millions of people around the world.
For some of our recent projects, we shipped large quantities of paint to the Caribbean and Central America including Honduras, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador. In the past few months, we have painted the family homes, local schools, and women’s centers in Haiti. Our dedicated volunteers have painted over 80-200 houses in Dondon. We have made a lot of progress in the basic school beautification program in Ghana. Many other such projects are also in full swing.
Since the global pandemic still poses a threat to us, your support is needed now, more than ever! Although we are not here to make a profit, no charity can survive without help. Your donation and financial support help us cover operative, administrative, and various fixed and variable expenses needed to run our organization and carry out our mission around the world.
