During this month of giving thanks, we have so many choices as to where we will spread our words and our dollars. There’s no limit on how many times we can say thank you, but giving funds requires a bit more thought.
This year, I’ve decided that education is my number one priority.
As to where to give, I want to support the students who reside in South Sudan, which is now rated the poorest country in the world (Global Finance Magazine). The Padoc Area Scholars Society (PASS) provides full-tuition college scholarships to qualified students as well as an allowance for books and school supplies. A donation of as little as $36 covers the cost of the first month of a college education.
What drew me to this organization was meeting the co-founders and hearing the words of a student who said “I want to break the chain of poverty through education.”
Now through November 16, all donations are being matched up to $11,000, thanks to a couple of generous donors.
How will you give thanks?
