Today is a special day because people around the world will unite to remember and support others with the launch of #GivingTuesdayNow.
Sure, we have the opportunity to give every day, and we have the cadence of the calendar with holidays and other regular times for giving, but today is special because it is a day that we choose to respond to this specific need created by COVID-19 and felt by every person in every country. Today is #GivingTuesdayNow.
I am hopeful because this day exists. It is a statement we make together that says, “I see, I care, and I now take action to help another person who is impacted by this crisis, as I am.” To make this special statement TODAY demonstrates our resilience and commitment to thrive together. In the face of an intense, unexpected blow, we collectively get up, brush ourselves off, and declare, “We are not done yet.” This is HOPE.
We’ve been sharing our need to raise $25,000 as a starting point to sustain Sari Bari through June and into July. We continue to be encouraged by how HOPE is embraced by the donations we have received. We’re now at $7,000 toward our goal with time to still reach that goal.
Today, we are joining with #GivingTuesdayNow in a call to a powerful and special movement of generosity to help those communities most impacted, and who are still most at risk. We are asking that you think of the women of Sari Bari and give to help us to sustain for the sake of freedom now, as Sari Bari in India distributes wages during the lockdown, and as we see communities open once again and employment continues.
Thank you for standing with us.
All of us at Sari Bari
