Tuesday, November 28th is #GivingTuesday and we are so excited!
On the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday has been an anticipated event among the nonprofit world for six years. With almost 100 countries participating and almost $200 million in donations, this year is set to be the biggest yet!
We are excited to share with you that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is teaming up with Facebook to donate 2 Million Dollars to nonprofits. Beginning at 8am on Giving Tuesday, the Foundation is matching up to $50,000 per nonprofit! That means you can help us fund an entire school in just ONE DAY!
Our goal this year is to get our Birikani school entirely supported and Giving Tuesday can make it happen! Check out these easy ways you can provide 200 awesome kids with food, clean water, clothing and education for a entire year.
1. Write a Facebook Post
Create a quick post with @retouchtheworld at the end. After you post, you’ll see a prompt to add a donate button. The Gates Foundation is matching up to $1,000 for donations raised via your Donate Button!
2. Create a Fundraiser
Visit Facebook.com/retouchtheworld and click “Create a Fundraiser”. Up to $1,000 per fundraiser will be matched through The Gates Foundation!
3. Donate Directly
Visit Facebook.com/retouchtheworld and click “Donate”. Facebook is waiving fees for all donations received on Giving Tuesday so 100% of your gift goes directly to our kids!
No matter how you choose to help, any effort or gift will go a long way in making sure our kids can continue to receive the quality Christian Education that Retouch provides.
