TO DELIVER SURGICAL CARE TO THOSE IN NEED
We are a medical charity that funds surgical missions to underserved nations around the world.
Did you know that an estimated 30-50% of our world's population lacks access to basic surgical care? Or that a significant percentage of deaths in these countries are ammenable to routine surgeries that we take for granted? With your help, we can change that?
TO INSPIRE THE FUNDRAISER IN EACH OF US
All events are a great opportunity to create a fundraiser. From walks, 5Ks, and turkey trots ... to marathons. Triathlons, hikes, cycling races. No matter what your adventure is, each can serve as an opportunity to change lives forever.
Turn what you are good at doing...into doing good for others!
TO MAKE FUNDRAISING FUN!
This is the fun part! Your GTE profile page makes fundraising fun and easy.
Create a basic profile in 5 minutes and you're off and running. Keep it simple. Or, use many of the great profile features. Bring your family and friends on your journey with photos, video, and blog posts. On the day of your event, you can even stream live text updates and video to your profile page for all to watch!
TO SHARE OUR STORIES
Founded on the belief that stories of inspiration are everywhere, GTE strives to be a storyteller. The story of each of our missions is told on our site through its own page. Better yet, video stories of each mission let you see these stories up close.
Please enjoy these remarkable stories!
