Today begins the countdown to our favorite non-profit holiday. After Black Friday comes Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, then Giving Tuesday!
This year, we are raising funds for the December graduation of 40 young women who have been waiting longer than usual for this day! Our school closed down for a few months during the early pandemic, but it’s finally time for them to graduate.
We buy 20 sewing machines for each class, allowing pairs of students to share one machine as they open their business.
Our goal on this #GivingTuesday is to raise $3000 to purchase these machines, which cost $150 each in Eastern Congo. As you plan your #GivingTuesday donations, please keep us in mind. You can find donation information here.
