After hearing requests from supporters who wanted to raise money for OneWorld patients for their Facebook birthday fundraisers, OneWorld took the necessary steps to set up an official nonprofit account through Facebook. Now, anyone who is interested in raising funds for OneWorld patients throughout the year can do so through Facebook fundraisers. All donations raised for OneWorld through Facebook will go directly to ensuring that we can continue to provide culturally respectful, quality health care for everyone. All of us at OneWorld thank you in advance for any donations that might come our way because of your efforts!
