Today is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving powered by the social media and collaboration. Started in 2012, Giving Tuesday has supported more than 30,000 organizations. In 2015 alone, they raised nearly $117 million in online donations!
The organization my sister founded, Student Driven Solutions, is launching a crowdfunding campaign with Global Giving to support their work. Their goal is to raise $5000 in 5 weeks! Student Driven Solutions is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides financial literacy and business training, together with mentorship and social justice awareness, to girls in high school, school dropouts, and recent graduates in Malawi. On Giving Tuesday all donations will be matched.
P.S. If you’re in NYC, on January 11th they are throwing an event to raise awareness and funds. Please email me for the official invite!
