Give the Gift of Education this Holiday Season

I recieved an email from Mama Lucy Kamptoni this week . She was excited to share that out of more than 100 schools in the Arusha district, Shepherds Junior school scored 2nd in class 4 national exams, only 2 points behind the top school.

This year’s TweetsGiving, a global gratitude event sponsored by Epic Change, benefitted Mama Lucy’s school in Arusha, Tanzania. Shepherds Junior currently serves about 350 students. During this holiday season you can help the school offer the opportunity for a great education to even more children.

Choosing one of the gifts below will help a child attended the shool. Your generosity will benefit children who have lost their parents or come from families that cannot afford basic needs.

Each of these items will help a child recieve a good education for a full year:

  • $25 – School Uniform
  • $50 – School Supplies
  • $100 – Daily Porridge and Lunch (annual meals)
  • $250 – A Good Education (annual tuition)
  • $500 – A Loving Home for a Child (annual boarding)

All of these gifts are avialable in the Epic Change Gift Shop.

TweetsGiving Provides Important Aid to Tanzania

Scheduled for November 24 – 26, 2009, TweetsGiving is a global celebration that seeks to change the world through the power of gratitude. The 48 hour event was created by Epic Change and encourages us to express thanks using online tools and at live get-togethers across the world.

Guest are invited to give to a common cause in honor of those people and things that make them grateful. This year Epic Change will be partnering with Lucy Kamptoni in Tanzania to implement a technology lab at a primary school. The following video gives us a look at Tanzania:

But that’s not the whole story. According to the CIA’s World Factbook, Tanzania faces serious economic and health issues which will be addressed by the next generation. TweetsGiving gives us an opportunity to equip students in Tanzania to take leadership roles in the country’s future. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders.

Tanzania is in the bottom 10% of the world’s economies. The assistance Epic Change offers to Shepherds Junior primary school in Arusha ensures the necessary tools for the best education the school can possibly provide.

I hope you’ll join me in celebrating the many blessings and opportunities we share. Visit the TweetsGiving community and sign up for your own profile (it’s free). Then commit to give at least $10 dollars to the cause. You can also find a TweetsGiving event near where you live. Be a part, make history and help the kids in Tanzania.

TweetsGiving 2009: Changing the World with the Power of Gratitiude

TweetsGiving invites you to bring your grateful heart to the party this November. Scheduled for November 24 – 26, 2009, TweetsGiving is a global celebration that seeks to change the world through the power of gratitude.

The 48 hour event was created by Epic Change and encourages us to express thanks using online tools and at live get-togethers across the world. Guest are invited to give to a common cause in honor of those people and things that make them grateful. This year Epic Change will be partnering with Lucy Kamptoni in Tanzania to implement a technology lab at a primary school.

Epic Change launched the original TweetsGiving in November 08, with just six days of planning and only two days before the US Thanksgiving holiday, successfully raising over $10,000 to build a classroom in Arusha, Tanzania. Now those students need a technology lab to equip them for participation in a global marketplace.

When 12for12k supporter and friend John Haydon asked me to get involved with TweetsGiving I had no idea what I was getting into. Now I’m on a grand, party planning adventure. I’m searching for a venue for a local TweetsGiving event, entertainment and sponsors. You can find an event to attend near where you live at the TweetsGiving site.
