“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Today, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.” —GivingTuesday.Org
Meet Valery— She has just completed the fourth grade! Now that she can attend school with a backpack, a uniform, and school supplies, Valery doesn’t have to wonder where her school fees will come from. Her family can now put those funds towards food and rent. With Valery’s mother making less than $2 a day, she wouldn’t be attending school if it weren’t for the Christmas Backpack Program.
In honor of #GivingTuesday, we would like to express a heartfelt thank-you to our generous donors who have already impacted a child’s life by participating in our 2014 Christmas Backpack Program. We still have quite a ways to go, but we are thankful for the 261 backpacks that have already been donated!
