On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose:
to celebrate and encourage giving.
#GivingTuesday is a day to donate toward your favorite cause and make a statement that you're choosing to GIVE this holiday season. You don’t have to be a world leader or a billionaire to give back. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things.
In 2014, approx. $9.1 billion was spent on Black Friday.
A few days later, 45.6 million was given to non-profits on #GivingTuesday.
Join us in flipping those statistics and showing the world that it's better to give than to receive.
This year, Ordinary Hero is excited to join in on the #GivingTuesday movement, and we want you to experience the joy of giving with us! We are inviting our OH family to give the Gift of Christmas this #GivingTuesday.
The donations given this #GivingTuesday will allow us to bless our ministries with a Christmas to remember. Christmas in Ethiopia is a beautiful time of celebration. As a historically Christian country, Ethiopians honor the birth of Christ and celebrate with family, feasts, music, and time spent at church. This Christmas we would love to make sure every family and child within our programs have the opportunity to enjoy a special Christmas meal.
So what we're saying is...
Our goal is to provide almost 1,100 people in Ethiopia with a special Christmas meal!
On December 2nd we will announce the amount we were able to raise and, of course, post pictures and video of the Christmas feasts we were able to create. But don't forget, Ethiopia celebrates Christmas on January 7th :)
