Fill the Coop Fundraiser for #GivingTuesday and the Crowdrise Holiday Challenge

Learn for Life Kenya is excited to participate in #GivingTuesday this year and hope you will join our efforts as a Chickambassador for this global day of giving. Here is all the information you need to be a Chickambassador for this online campaign:

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, and celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving 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.

How is Learn for Life Kenya participating in #GivingTuesday?

This year, Learn for Life Kenya will be raising $10,000 to launch a poultry farming initiative that will teach relevant agriculture and business skills to marginalized youth in Nyeri, Kenya.

Our fundraiser, Fill the Coop: Fighting Poverty One Chicken at a Time, 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 Chickambassador:


    • $10 provides the maximum lifecycle cost for one chicken for our coop. Our goal is to raise 1,000 chickens. We will be sharing our fundraiser on social media and collecting donations on November 29 for #GivingTuesday and throughout the holiday season until January 5, 2017. Mark your calendar and plan to donate.


    • Online: It takes less than five minutes to set up your fundraiser. All you have to do is Go Here and click "FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN."

    • Offline: Don’t feel tech savvy? That’s okay. Email to receive a flyer to promote the fundraiser to (and collect money from) your network in person.


    • Be social and spread the word to your network. Make sure you like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter so you can share our story throughout this campaign.
