Giving Tuesday 2018
Fluidity, flow, slow and steady breathing is this year’s Giving Tuesday theme for one of our charity partners.
In the run up to November 27th, our Scottish-based partner Renew SCIO, are raising funds to support Park Rangers Widows and Orphans Project (PRWOP) in DRC (Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo).
They plan to do this by hosting two yoga events, on November 3rd and 24th, and asking people to donate to their campaign to provide children and families with a clean source of water.
Reaching a wider audience
The PRWOP project, which assists widows and orphans of Park Rangers by providing goods, equipment and job training for the women and enables access to education for the children, will also be using the funds to help some of the orphans at risk from dropping out of school and enable older kids to finish vocational training they started in the first half of the year.
Speaking for the charity the Chairperson of Renew SCIO said:
“Our ethos is ‘together we can make a difference’ because, at a local, person-to-person level, that’s what we’re about, helping the widows to help themselves and each other.
Giving Tuesday gives us the opportunity to reach a wider audience at the same time as participating in a really positive, global event to raise awareness of good causes. We love the message and the vibe of GT and get a real buzz telling people about it! It’s good news and serves a good purpose.”
She added: “The public events are fun as it’s a way for people to do something good for themselves and help others at the same time. To the women and children the support really does make a world of difference. So for Giving Tuesday 2018 please make a donation, share our information, come along and help to make their hopes a reality.”
