Today is “Giving Tuesday.”, created as an alternative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to celebrating generosity and giving back. As readers of this blog are aware, I serve as on the Board of Directors of the Uweza Foundation; a charitable NGO that supports children and youth in Kibera, Kenya to attend school, participate in activities they love, realize their own capabilities, and know that they are important and deserving of support.
We recognize and appreciate how important your contributions are. Of course, before you give, it is also important to take the time to learn more about our work, why we do what we do, and how donated funds are spent.
There are so many organizations doing such important work all over the globe and I can’t thank you enough for believing in what we do and choosing to support us. As always, please feel free to e-mail me email@example.com with any ideas, suggestions, or questions about Uweza.
On behalf of the more than 1,000 children, youth, and women who have benefited from Uweza in 2015, thank you again.
Jerry Silverman, Board Member, Uweza Foundation.
