This #GivingTuesday is going to be the best one yet!

#GivingTuesday is the day of generosity that follows a week of holiday shopping sprees. This special day celebrating the nonprofit sector began six years ago, and today it's celebrated all over the world.

It's one week from today, and we've made our annual #GivingTuesday campaign crazy awesome this year. From a $3,000 matching campaign to awards for the first 100 donors, you won't want to miss out.


You Can Give Early

Our campaign is already live. If you think you may be too busy to give on #GivingTuesday, you can give right now. And all the perks still apply! That means that your donation will be matched right now, and if you give $50 or more we'll mail you a #GritGrindGive towel!


Where Your Gift Goes

100% of your donation through our Giving Tuesday campaign goes to the primary school we support in Yida Refugee Camp, South Sudan. This high-performing institution is one of the few in the area, and your support means it can stay open through 2018.


We Made Classy's Top 10!

Our #GivingTuesday campaign made fundraising platform giant Classy's Top 10 Campaigns they love this year due to our creative approach, tangible connections, and being awesome at fundraising. Sorry, we just had to toot our own horn a bit!


We're Going Live Again

Our staff will be live-streaming through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram on and off all day this #GivingTuesday. Last year, you brought over 15,000 people together to hear and share our stories from Sudan. You can see the times we'll be online when you scroll or swipe down this year's campaign.


Spread The Good News!

From inviting friends to the Facebook event page to printing off a selfie template to share why you are giving, there's lots of ways to get your friends and family involved. Giving Tuesday is all about celebrating the Sudanese people. The more the merrier!
