November 29, Giving Tuesday, A Global Day of Giving Back

Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. We are joining thousands of religious and non-profit groups and communities who will be participating. Last year generous friends helped us raise over $25,000 for our active, retired Sisters.

This year we are excited to be raising money to help build schools in rural Nicaragua where Sr. Sandy Price has served for 35 years. Sr. Sandy’s education ministry includes teaching Montessori preschool classes in Mulukukú, and, at the request of one of the Bishops of Nicaragua, establishing schools in rural mountain communities. Over the years she has been instrumental in opening many schools, but sadly many areas still lack schools. We want to help change that.

This Giving Tuesday, with your help, we hope to raise $30,000 to build preschools and primary schools. The schools will be built by parent volunteers under the guidance of a master builder. They will not be grand, but will be sturdy and dry and provide a safe, welcoming environment for children to learn.

Will you help us? Your donation today will go far. Thanks to generous donors, we have $7,000 in matching funds. So your gift of $100, becomes $200!
