Giving Tuesday 2020
Giving Tuesday began as a global generosity movement. Positioned right after the consumption focused Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday works to shift our focus, and our giving power, back to our communities and the world.
When our culture puts pressure on us to spend money on things, Giving Tuesday reminds us our money can do more when we invest in people.
Investing in people is exactly what we do here at The Adventure Project, which is why for Giving Tuesday this year our goal is to invest in 100 people.
In our 10 years as an organization, we’ve seen how investing in people makes them heroes in their own communities. Because that one person who is given a job because of your support will go on to serve at least 500 members of their own community.
These heroes you have supported have become essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are the ones who continue to bring life-saving medicines and equipment to at-risk communities. They are the ones making sure clean water is readily available and free. They are the ones ensuring people have access to clean cookstoves so women and children aren’t being burdened with sick lungs during a pandemic that affects the respiratory system. These heroes are the ones who, with the help of a simple irrigation pump, harvest enough food to feed their own families and then share the extras with their neighbors.
