Celebrate MEP on #GivingTuesday

"We have a day for giving thanks, two days for getting deals. Why shouldn't there be a day for giving back?"

-Henry Timms, one of the founders of #GivingTuesday

 We had Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, all getting us in the mood for the holidays. Today shifts the focus from getting to giving. It is the day to give back, to give to the wider community. #GivingTuesday is your chance to jumpstart the good feelings of the holiday by giving a gift to Mercy Education Project. Your support is key to opening doors to brighter futures. Invest where it counts. Make a difference. Ensure a future workforce.

This is the time of year when many Americans will be making charitable donations, and we'd like to share some exciting news. The Giving Library, an online video archive that connects donors to nonprofits, is kicking off a $100,000 "Share to Give" campaign on #GivingTuesday, the national day of giving.

This is a way for you to support Mercy Education Project without spending money this holiday season. All you have to do is share our Giving Library video on Facebook or Twitter, and the Giving Library will donate $5 to us. It's that simple! Participants can share up to five organizations per month, and the Giving Library will donate up to $100,000 during the campaign. There are no gimmicks and no matching contributions.

Please take a minute today to log onto the Giving Library at http://www.GivingLibrary.org and share our video. We thank you for your support and wish you a joyful season.

"Education is an opportunity and can be transformational for our most vulnerable communities; especially those, like us, working tirelessly in search of the American Dream. Programs like Mercy Education Project have successfully removed those barriers for many and have educated our women and girls and is transforming their lives."

"….Literacy is a fundamental right and an essential building block for a productive life. Increasing adult literacy also ensures more parents can be engaged in their children’s education, ,making this a cause  critical to helping families break the cycle of poverty. Thank you to Mercy Education Project for their tireless efforts to ensure everyone has an opportunity to learn to read. Together, I know we are making a difference.”
