The Real Uganda’s 2016 #GivingTuesday Appeal

Does everyone here know about Giving Tuesday? It’s mostly been an American phenomenon – but it’s spreading quickly world wide. It’s a way to bring attention to the work of non-profit organizations during the holiday season, focusing away from excessive shopping for consumer goods. It takes place on the Tuesday after the U.S. Thanksgiving.

This year, it falls on November 29th – just a few days from now.

The Real Uganda, in a bid to capture a little funding for some fun and empowering initiatives, has put together an appeal. We have 3 low-cost, high impact options for you to spend your hard earned cash. Each support innovative and motivated Ugandans.

Check out these 3 ways to help Ugandans stay in charge of their own development. Tap the photo to be taken to our online payment forum, PesaPal – Thank you in advance!

And there you have it. The Real Uganda’s Giving Tuesday appeal for this year. And while you may say “Ah, I’m not American, I don’t go in for their gimmicks”, know that our first 2 donors were from England and Australia! Woo-hoo!

To our American readers – have an amazing Thanksgiving long weekend. Don’t get killed in any Black Friday sales!
