It's been almost one month since we got our 501(c)(3) status and just over a week since our website went live. So far, it's been an exciting ride as I learn new things about having a "social media" schedule, how to create a fundraiser online, and how to use SEO and CRM software to grow our nonprofit. But learning is something I'm passionate about, obviously, so it's been both interesting and beneficial. Our Creative Director of Marketing and Social Outreach, Carl, has been busy showing me how to effectively engage with our supporters online, and fine tuning our website, Facebook page, and Instagram. Our Director of Operations in Ghana, Sr. Agatha, has been busy compiling data on the community and students we serve.
Our first big fundraiser is coming up on Tuesday, November 30, 2021, Giving Tuesday. This is your opportunity to partner with us in giving the gift of education to students in Ghana who would not be able to finish high school without our support. We hope you will consider investing in the future of a young person by donating to Suitcases Equal Academics.
"Giving Tuesday reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give."
