SEM Cares Foundation is yet again joining the Global Giving Tuesday Movement

SEM Cares Foundation is yet again joining the Global Giving Tuesday Movement to support our youth, our community, and our future.Giving Tuesday will be taking place on the 3rd of December and it’s a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

Every year, on Giving Tuesday, millions of people across the globe (almost 60 countries) mobilize to show up, give back, and change their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.Founded in 2012, Giving Tuesday has inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in, which SEM Cares Foundation also took part from last year. Over $400 million was raised online in 2018 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.We are looking to raise E300, 000.00 as we also wish to buy land for a special structure in means to create job opportunities for our youth in the Kingdom of Eswatini.

“When GT launched in the US in 2012, we believed that technology and social media could be used to make generosity go viral;” said Asha Curran, Giving Tuesday’s CEO and co-founder.“We believed in the idea that people fundamentally want to give and to talk about giving; and that the social sector had the capacity to show more innovative leadership, creativity, and collaboration. People and organizations around the world proved us right. As we prepare for December 3, we’re energized and encouraged by the community’s generosity. The levels of creativity, effort and the quality of the new ideas people have contributed and shared are phenomenal.”
