Giving Tuesday is a special day of generosity encouraging people to give to their favorite nonprofits. It comes on the heels of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Last Giving Tuesday, you raised and gave $10,528.
Operation Broken Silence sponsors the Endure Primary and Renewal High Schools in Yida. We support 24 Sudanese teachers and nearly 1,100 students there every day. While the schools are led entirely by the Sudanese, they rely on us for 100% of their funding. We've spent most of this year fundraising for the basics: teacher salaries, school supplies and equipment, sports programs, and new classrooms.
This Giving Tuesday, we are focusing on a specific project at the schools. Our goal is to raise $12,500 towards what will be the first school library in Yida Refugee Camp.
Want to make a gift of time instead? You can start a fundraising page for the library and ask your friends and family to donate! BECOME A FUNDRAISER »
Live in our home city of Memphis,TN? We have two Giving Tuesday events this year you don't want to miss!
Operation Broken Silence is celebrating this Giving Tuesday with a Scavenger Hunt that spans across our home city of Memphis, TN! The hunt begins on Saturday, November 30th and ends on Tuesday, December 3rd (Giving Tuesday) at 6:30PM.
A list of ten clues will be emailed to you on November 30 at 7:00AM! The clues will send you to our favorite places in Memphis to gather OBS stories, fun prizes, and to take selfies at each location.
You will have until Tuesday, December 3rd at 6:30PM to complete the list. That's when you will bring the items you gathered to our Giving Tuesday party at Wiseacre Brewing Company. The winner receives tickets to our annual Gala in 2020, OBS merchandise, prizes and swag from sponsors, and bragging rights!
Wiseacre will have a seasonal beer on tap named for our cause and is giving a portion of sales to the upcoming library! It's a time for our community, but we'll also have some fun perks:
- An exclusive 25% discount to our annual Soirée For Sudan in March 2020. Yea, for real.
- Discounted OBS shirts and stickers.
- Photos! You'll show up on our social media a few days later with our love for you.
The people of Sudan are overcoming two of the greatest challenges facing humanity today: war and genocide.
