In 2012, Giving Tuesday started as a simple way to encourage people everywhere—and make it easier for them—to do good by donating time, expertise or money to causes they were passionate about. Now, Giving Tuesday has become a global phenomenon. Inspiring people in communities around the world to help in any way they can. You were inspired and we were inspired. So this December we’re making every Tuesday a Giving Tuesday. We’re inviting everyone to consider how much they can help someone in their community or halfway around the world. And to think of every Tuesday as a special day to make life better, anywhere, for others.
PayPal is matching donations received through the PayPal fundraising page and app by 10%, up to a maximum of £150,000 in total matching funds every Tuesday in December. If you are still looking for a Charity to support this Christmas, please consider GETA. All funds go directly towards the support of education for underprivileged children at St Theresa's Nursery & Infant school in Uganda. Our current project is supporting the building of a boy's dormitory for children who board at the school. Previous projects have provided fresh, clean running water to the school and installation of security fencing around the perimeter of the school buildings.
All donations big or small, will make a huge difference to a young person's life.
Wishing all our supporters a very Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year! Thank you for your ongoing support.
