I am so grateful for everything that Joyce, Jia, Catherine, John, Jennifer, Danielle, and the rest of Givology team have done to help the Circle of Peace School. The students at Peace School and I are blessed to know such kind, charitable people. It was only a little over a year ago since the Peace School partnered with Givology, and since then, Givology has helped raise over 16,000 for the children at the Circle of Peace School. Everyone at Peace School is thankful for your hard work and the countless hours you have poured into making it possible for the Circle of Peace School to continue providing a free education to children who would not receive one otherwise.<br />TOTAL: $16,817<br />
