Gear up for #GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that happens the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States. It reminds us that the upcoming holiday season is truly about expressing our gratitude and giving back to those most in need.
NEED IDEAS OF HOW TO HELP?
We can't think of a better way to celebrate #GivingTuesday than working toward a world where everyone can claim their human rights! Be a Human Rights Defender and work to protect human rights by helping us reach our $100,000 goal to extend our life giving work into Honduras and Guatemala.
- Host a Friendsgiving Benefit. Check out this How-To-Guide with Thanksgiving cocktail recipes and ideas!
- Ask your family (or Santa!) to donate in your honor this Christmas. Or start your own crowd funding campaign!
- Screen the El Milagro mini-documentary to raise awarness about violence and forced displacement at your bible study.
Include this prayer as a part of your parish services, or as part of your individual practice.
O God, your holy child Jesus was a refugee in Egypt, fleeing the violence of Herod. Protect your children today who are forced to flee violence in its many forms. Bring them to safe refuge. Awaken hearts and minds to the involuntary uprooting of peoples across our globe, and help us to re-order this world in the image of your love. Amen.
Use the videos below to raise awareness about the Central American refugee crisis in your community.
