#GivingTuesday 2017 Fundraiser

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!
