On Tuesday, December 1. 2015 Hope for Ghana will be participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to charitable giving. #GivingTuesday is an annual event following Black Friday and Cyber Monday that inspires all of us to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes we support. It is a movement that reminds all of us what the holiday season is all about. Hope for Ghana is very proud to be a partner of #GivingTuesday.
After Thanksgiving I spoke with Noble, the assistant headmaster at Tegbi Agbedrafor Basic School, home of Hope for Ghana’s third project, The Elena Haasen Library. He reminded me that children are reading in the library every day, and he insists that the reading level and English comprehension of his students has dramatically increased since the library opened in March 2015. The children love the learning software on the computers, and he noted that “boys are even teaching the girls how to use the computers.” I am constantly reminded of the impact of Hope for Ghana’s mission. Together a mission of hope and opportunity is making a difference in the lives of thousands of children overseas. The possibilities are boundless.
So on #GivingTuesday join me in celebrating the holiday season as we find ways to give back in this world and strive to make the world a better place. Tomorrow, share the mission of Hope for Ghana via email or on social media. Share the #GivingTuesday picture below on Facebook or Twitter tomorrow, and remind your friends that they can truly bring a brighter future to these Ghanaian children. All donations are tax-deductible and can be made directly on Hope for Ghana’s website, www.hopeforghana.com.
Have a beautiful, healthy and safe holiday season!
