#GivingTuesday- AgriCorps Crowdrise Year End Appeal

 Did you know that today is Giving Tuesday (#GivingTuesday)?? Giving Tuesday is a social movement  that helps people give back by donating their time, money, or influence to a cause or organization that they feel passionate about.  Giving Tuesday is celebrated the day after Cyber Monday as a day to encourage kindness and generosity.

I’m excited to let you know about AgriCorps’ Year End Appeal, which will provide critical support funds to help us make our impact. It will fund programs like farmer trainings, agriscience classes, teacher trainings, and fellow support.

If you are thinking of giving today, can I please ask you to consider giving a donation to AgriCorps? Having lived in Liberia for 3 months now and working with farmers and youth alike, I have seen even more clearly the need there is for  agricultural education and youth development programs which will help to develop this country’s next generation of agricultural leaders. AgriCorps is working directly to fill that need and support the growth and education of young people in a sustainable way so that even after the AgriCorps Fellow leaves after his/her one year of service, the impact that was made during that time will remain and continue to spread and strengthen for years to come.  Last year, AgriCorps fellows taught 6,901 students, established 19 school gardens, and trained 81 teachers. We want to accomplish even more this year. But we need your help!

Even if you are unable to donate today, we want to thank you for your continued support, kind words, prayers, etc. We are continually overwhelmed with love from afar and we couldn’t be more grateful. Wishing you all a great start to your holiday season!

Love,

Anna and Nathan

    • Hi Linda! I haven’t learned too much yet about celebrating the holidays here. It appears they dont do too much until the day of the holiday. I’ll have to write a blog post on it once i’ve experienced it myself 😊 hope you are well!
