Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.
Each year the sisters select a specific focus for all Giving Tuesday donations. In 2018 all money raised will be put towards our Haiti Scholarship program, Avancez. This program is for children and young people who otherwise would be left out of school for lack of ability to pay even minimal fees. This program provides funds for any child in any school that is in danger of having to drop out of school because their parents cannot pay the minimum fees required. In the present economic situation, the Sisters Scholarship program has become a major pastoral and outreach work. Education is a precious privilege, the door to the future of this country and of individuals. The cost of tuition from pre-school to the end of secondary school varies from $250 to $1000 US dollars per child per year. Your donation, however large or small, it graciously appreciated.
