Yesterday was #GivingTuesday! On this global day of generosity, you fundraised, gave, and raised awareness for 24 hours straight. We wouldn't have been able to exceed our goals this year without your commitment to the people of Sudan. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Here are your fundraising results for our programs!
But today wasn't just about raising money, it was also about reaching a larger audience with your passion for the Sudanese people. Thanks to your social media posts and emails, you reached over 52,000 people concerning Sudan and our work there. You also brought over 15,000 people together online to tune into our livestreams, which you can watch here. That's pretty amazing!
And throughout the day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter you made sure our social media posts frequently took the top spots for our headquarter city's #GivingTuesday campaign #GritGrindGive.
These numbers will continue climbing today as late donations come in and people continue sharing your social media posts and our livestreams. #GivingTuesday may be over, but your efforts and our work will continue in the coming weeks. Here's how you can stay involved:
1. Give If You Haven't Yet. Despite your tremendous success yesterday, a number of you didn't follow through on your pledges to pitch in. We understand that life gets busy, so pitch in right now before you forget again. GIVE HERE »
2. Attend Our Next Event. If you're in the Memphis, TN area, we invite you to attend our next event on Saturday, December 10. LEARN MORE »
3. Start Fundraising. December is one of the best months of the year to start a fundraising page and raise $200 for one of our life-changing programs. Your friends and family are looking to give to causes they care about during the holiday season. By starting a fundraising page for one of our programs in Sudan, you can provide them an easy way to make a difference! LEARN MORE »
