What is happening at IRWP?
You probably know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but have you heard about #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a global, online movement encouraging you to support your community through donations and volunteerism. #GivingTuesday serves to remind us to give thanks for the organizations that work hard to create a happy, healthy, and helpful community for all. On November 29, IRWP will join nonprofits, companies, and individuals from around the world to ask for your support.
We could use your help in spreading the word!
People learn about #GivingTuesday through social media and word of mouth. We will be posting throughout the month of November. If you are on social media, please share our posts with your personal reason for supporting IRWP or feel free to create your own post. Many people will be posting "UNselfies", a photo of themselves and a reason why they are involved with IRWP or why they believe IRWP is important to the community. Keep an eye out on our social media pages for examples! Sharing your involvement with IRWP is critically important to the work we do every day. We currently have a waiting list of more than 75 students who are eager to learn English and gain new life skills. You never know who may see your social media post and want to learn more about our organization, sign up to volunteer, or make a donation.
Whether or not you are on social media, you can still support IRWP on November 29 by making an online donation or by sending in a check. You can play a vital role in helping our students reach their goals!
One of the most common goals expressed by students when first starting in the program is to become more involved in the education of their children. This includes reading stories together, helping with homework, understanding communications from teachers, and attending parent-teacher meetings. We intend to support this goal 110% and you can too! Your donation will make a BIG impact in the lives of immigrant and refugee families.
