#Giving Tuesday is one week from today.

Thank you so much to everyone that donated and shared our school building project to your friends and family on #GivingTuesday. We were able to raise $6,360 plus the $2,000 match from Jeff Maine at Proudly for a grand total of $8,360 of the $25,000 needed for our Phase 1 of the project. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!

We cannot be the hands and feet of Jesus without amazing donors ready to support us! Thank you!

Today is the day! Educate a child, Educate a Nation! Help us educate a child by donating to Phase 1 of our school building project in Egbe, Nigeria on this day of generosity.

Click below to donate any amount so we can build our school for our kids at C.A.R.E. Africa.

10.5 million children in Nigeria are not in school per Unicef statistics. This is the highest population of out of school children in the world. Help us build a school in Egbe, Nigeria so our 78 vulnerable children can go to school in a safe and secure environment.

We currently rent a space and have outgrown it. 152 children attend our school and 78 of these children are on scholarships. We want each child to receive a quality education and in order to do that, we feel the child to teacher ratio needs to be low. We pride ourselves in the fact that our teacher to child ratio is 15 pupils per class. This means we cannot take as many children as we would like and so we have a waiting list of children begging to get an education. With the new school we will have more classrooms and can take more children.

We have the land we just need the buildings. The total building project cost is $250,000 of which Phase 1 is $25,000. This will allow us to start clearing the land, building the wall and digging the footers. Donate any amount to help us educate more children in Egbe, Nigeria! Click DONATE

There is Black Friday, Cyber Monday and #Giving Tuesday!

#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.

#GivingTuesday is on November 30, 2021

#Giving Tuesday does not collect fees to participate in the annual event. All fundraising activities and the funds raised on #GivingTuesday are directed by each participating nonprofit organization and processed by the giving platform of their choice. All money raised on #GivingTuesday goes immediately to the nonprofit or community organization that solicited the funds.

#GivingTuesday does not require registration. All organizations, 501c3 or otherwise, are welcome and encouraged to participate in #GivingTuesday.

How can you participate in #GivingTuesday?

There are hundreds of ways to participate in GivingTuesday. Whether you give your voice, goods, your time, or your money, being generous is a way to fight for the causes you care about and help people in need.

Here are some ideas you might consider:

  • Share kindness with your neighbors.
  • Volunteer virtually or share your talents
  • Give your voice to a cause that matters to you
  • Show gratitude to healthcare workers, service providers, and other essential workers who are making sure we still have the services we rely on, even at risk to their own health.
  • Discover a local fundraiser, community drive or coordinated event to join others in your area or with your same interests in giving back — they need your help. Search for opportunities here
  • Give to your favorite cause or a fundraiser to help those in need. (C.A.R.E. Africa!! See our #GivingTuesday blog to give at C.A.R.E. Africa School Project. )

There is Black Friday, Cyber Monday and then #GivingTuesday!

Three years ago we were struggling with getting our kids to and from the C.A.R.E. Africa center for A.W.A.N.A. and other programs. We started a bus campaign and raised $10,000. It wasn’t enough to get a bus but it did get us a minivan. Our minivan has been a huge asset over the past two years. From bringing teams to and from Egbe from the airport, to transporting the kids all around town, to making needed shopping pickups in Ilorin and taking our secondary school kids to University visits. This vehicle has blessed us abundantly but we have grown.

Since the last #GivingTuesday donors have generously given over $19,000 toward our bus project. We need $10,000 more to complete this project and buy our bus.

#GivingTuesday2020 is on December 1st!
