Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Many people don’t believe it, but giving is actually the key to one’s own success, fulfillment, and prosperity. The idea is that the good that one puts out into the world returns to them in overflowing abundance.
This spirit is the very essence of #GivingTuesday which is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. It is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
In 2019, #GivingTuesday will fall on December 3rd and it’s an opportunity for anyone and everyone to get involved in their own community or be introduced to a new one. We at Toa Nafasi warmly welcome you to become a part of ours and join us in supporting public primary schoolchildren with learning difficulties in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. As most of you already know, in addition to providing assistance to struggling young learners, we also offer opportunities for employment to formerly underemployed local women who we hire and train to be the children’s tutors. If you are so inclined, please do join us and donate today!
Even our Toa kids give by helping each other, sometimes with a wink and a smile! 😉
