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 last year's results without your commitment to the people of Sudan. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Here are your fundraising results:
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 16,500 people concerning Sudan and our work there. You also brought over 1,400 people together online to tune into our livestreams, which you can watch here.
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.
Our #GivingTuesday campaign also made fundraising giant Classy's Top 10 Campaigns they love this year due to our creative approach, tangible connections, and being awesome at fundraising!
These numbers will continue climbing today as late donations come in and people continue sharing your social media posts and our livestreams. #GivingTuesday is just one day of the year. Our efforts together with you will continue in the coming weeks.
The funds you raised and gave will soon be dispatched to the primary school in Yida Refugee Camp.
