Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

Today only Facebook is waiving fees on nonprofit fundraisers. Better yet, the Gates Foundation is matching every donation, which means your donation will be doubled. That’s a 100% return on investment! Not a bad deal at all. It’s like they’re giving money away.

Here’s two good candidates.

Destiny’s nonprofit is for a computer center in Ghana, West Africa, teaching children computer skills. There isn’t much opportunity there to learn technical skills like this, so this is a very special place for kids to learn things that aren’t easily available to them. And, for some kids, it’s also a safe place to be for a few hours.

Christine’s nonprofit is for at-risk teens who are in military school to get a chance to express themselves through the creative arts. It’s emotional art therapy and a way for them to do something different during their time of rigorous rehab. You know how it is to be a teen; it’s frustrating. Nothing like music, art, or poetry to help get that teen angst out and learn how to express your feelings.
