3 ways to celebrate Giving Tuesday

We have a day for giving thanks, a day for getting deals and a day for buying online. Now, a day for giving back! Join the #GivingTuesday movement with CFCA on Tuesday, December 3.

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday; a worldwide movement that encourages all of us to donate and volunteer.

Today on the blog, we bring you three ways you can join the #GivingTuesday movement with CFCA.

1. Donate to the CFCA Scholarship Fund

In many of the areas where we work, kids and youth can be turned away from school if they can’t afford to pay for a uniform or transportation to school.

A simple $5 bus ticket in Mexico or $20 for a school uniform in India could mean the end of an education for a student.

By donating to the scholarship fund, you give hard-working students a real chance to succeed. Scholars receive assistance with tuition, books, transportation and uniforms. In return, students provide valuable service hours to CFCA projects and serve as positive role models and mentors for younger children.

2. Sponsor a child

Through sponsorship, you can help a child live a more dignified life.

Your monthly donation, about $1 a day, helps lighten the load on a family. A student can go to school, receive food assistance and access health and dental care. Your sponsorship provides these basic needs to a young person and their family.

Make a huge difference with one small click.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Susie. To highlight Giving Tuesday, we decided to feature our CFCA Scholarship Fund and other ways to support the future education of children worldwide.

      We thank you for mentioning the elderly, and we always welcome sponsorship of our aging friends. We encourage anyone interested in sponsoring an elderly friend to please visit our website.

      Thank you,

      Veronica Batton, writer/editor
