The support we received this Giving Tuesday was overwhelming, but we’re not done just yet!
Learn for Life Kenya is taking part in this year’s Holiday Charity Challenge, allowing us to continue toward our goal of raising $6,000 by January 5th at 1:59 pm ET!
The Holidays have always been a time for giving, and we encourage you to get involved, and spread the word! Read more below about what we have set out to accomplish this Giving Season, and how you can help!
We are once again excited to participate in #GivingTuesday this year and hope you will join our efforts for this global day of giving. Here is all the information you need to donate or become a GT Ambassador for Learn for Life Kenya this holiday season.
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
How is L4LK participating in #GivingTuesday?
This year L4LK will be raising $6,000 to scale up our Bakery and the Poultry Farm! Both of these key social enterprises teach relevant agriculture and business skills to marginalized youth in Kenya. Our fundraiser is part of the CrowdRise Giving Tower Holiday Challenge, which is the best and most innovative way to raise money on #GivingTuesday, and throughout the holiday season, because it makes giving and fundraising lots of fun!
Choose one or all of the following ways to be a GT Ambassador:
DONATE: Your $10, $30, $100 or more will go a long way toward advancing both the Poultry Farm and the Bakery. Every chicken and every loaf helps! Visit our fundraiser here and click on "Donate Now." Or mail a check payable to “Learn for Life Kenya” with note “Giving Tuesday,” to Learn for Life Kenya, 2477 North 91st Street, Wauwatosa, WI 53226.
