#GivingTuesday 2017

100% of your gift supports childhood education in Yida Refugee Camp.

Tuesday, Nov 28, 2017, All Day

Tuesday, Novemeber 28 is hands down one of the best days of the year to make a donation to our lifesaving programs in Sudan. Why? Because we put 100% of your gift towards the primary school we support in Yida Refugee Camp! 

There are three simple things you can do today to help us make this one of our biggest giving days of the year:

1. Give Right Now

Last year, you gave and raised $7,714 on #GivingTuesday. Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 by midnight tonight! Whether you give $25 or $250, 100% of your gift goes to supporting our school in Yida Refugee Camp

And this year we have exciting news! The first $3,000 in donations is being matched by a small group of anoynomous donors. That means that if you give $50, they will pitch in $50 as well. Boom, your impact is doubled!
