Kindness Foundation Joins #GIVINGTUESDAY Annual Fundraising Effort

Kindness Foundation 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.

For nearly 25 years, the Kindness Foundation has provided Bibles to public school students in Russia, conducted teacher training seminars in teaching a Bible based curriculum on morality and worked with the Department of Education and local educators to support and strengthen the program. This program was expanded into neighboring former Soviet Republic countries like Ukraine over 15 years ago and Latvia over 5 years ago. This is accomplished through donations to the organization which are tax-deductible.

Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

According to Jennifer West, Executive Director, “Kindness Foundation recognized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and to encourage giving. We are seeking donations through #GivingTuesday to support our continuing effort to help more children come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through the teaching and distribution of Bibles.”

In 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness.
