Giving Tuesday

You've helped us raise over $25,000!

Thanks to the incredible generosity of Wellspring partners we have reached our first goal of $20,000, which has been tripled to $60,000. The good news is all donations will still be DOUBLED, and there are still lots of fun socks to give away!

Last year our Giving Tuesday was dedicated to celebrating the life and legacy of our dear friend and board member, Ray Olafsen. Before Ray passed away, he and his family set up the Joyful Living Joyful Giving Foundation that is committed to seeing a world where contagious generosity revives, renews, and empowers people and organizations.

This year, Ray’s generosity lives on as the Joyful Living Joyful Giving Foundation has so kindly offered $20,000 in match funding for contributions made on Giving Tuesday. This means that today your gift will have three times the impact! It will be matched first through the Joyful Living Joyful Giving funds, and then matched again by our year-end matching grant.

A hope of the Joyful Living Joyful Giving Foundation is that children and families would be given an opportunity to thrive, and so the funds raised today will be dedicated to our School Development Program that helps to provide thousands of Rwandan students with the quality education they deserve.

We hope you’ll join us for this day of joyful giving. We’d love to see every dollar matched! And in honour of Ray’s love for colourful, fun socks, we are excited to once again do a draw to give away a pair of socks for every $1000 dollars raised!
