To continue last week’s reflection of thanks, Winrock is participating in Giving Tuesday –which starts tomorrow. Everyone can participate in a few ways:
- Donate your time as a volunteer. You will gain as much –if not more– than you give! Current opportunities are posted at www.winrock.org/volunteer
- Make a donation to one of Winrock’s projects via the YouthSpark campaign. Our Room to Learn project in South Sudan (http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/room-to-learn-south-sudan/) is eligible for matching funds from Microsoft for donations made beginning at noon on Giving Tuesday.
- Help others find meaningful ways to give back. Share information about volunteer or donation opportunities with your friends, family, and colleagues. And share our blog so others can be inspired by volunteers’ work around the world!
Along with Giving Tuesday, this week marks International Volunteer Day (Thursday, December 5)! Stay tuned for a series of blogs in the upcoming days, featuring stories from our volunteers on the joys and benefits of international volunteerism.
