Blessing the Children International Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement: Pledges to Furnish Beds for 15 Orphans in Ethiopia
Blessing the Children International has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
We are Blessing the Children International, a non-profit organization rescuing orphans in Debre Zeyit, Ethiopia from poverty, homelessness and starvation.
Through our child sponsorship program, we provide food, medical care, and an education to more than 200 orphans. We are breaking the cycle of poverty, and we need your help!
Our #GivingTuesday Campaign
In a country where the majority of the population lives on less than $1 USD per day, an item like a bed is a luxury. Currently, 15 children in our program sleep on a dirt floor and have never known the comfort of a mattress. We made a commitment this holiday season to ensure that every child in our program wakes up in a warm bed on Christmas.
To meet this goal, we are in need of funds to provide a blanket ($22), mattress ($43), sheets and pillows ($28), and a bed frame ($87) to each child. The total cost for a complete bed set for one child is $180.
We are seeking support to help us reach across the world and give restful sleep to 15 of our precious children who have been broken from family tragedy and poverty.
