Have you ever thought what you have to give? Skills, time, energy, stuff, money…Whatever you have, the 27th November is a great opportunity to put it to good use. Giving Tuesday falls after Black Friday and is all about using what you have to help others. We have some great ideas to share and would love to see how YOU can get involved.
Check out the links below for our suggestions for how individuals and businesses can GIVE on Giving Tuesday, as well as how non-profits can make use of the internationally recognised event.
We’re excited to be partnering with the East Africa Philanthropy Network for Giving Tuesday this year and have been helping organisations find ways to get involved. We’re also connecting organisations and individuals who can work together to have impact. If you’ve got any of the resources listed above and are looking for ideas of how to use them on Giving Tuesday, get in touch.
We’re coming up with some great ideas for how our volunteers can get involved so if you’d like to join us, we’d love to hear from you!

If you read our recent post about volunteer training in Nairobi, you'll know that the volunteers were asked to paint rocks....and did so with great enthusiasm!
This was part of our new project called Nairobi Rocks. The idea is really simple. You paint positive, encouraging messages on rocks and hide them somewhere in Nairobi. When someone finds one, they have the option of just taking a picture and leaving it, taking it home or hiding it somewhere else.
We've already had rocks hidden at The Hub shopping mall, Arboretum, University of Nairobi, Uhuru Park, Memorial Gardens and a couple of other spots. If you happen to find one, please let us know on the Nairobi Rocks group on Facebook or our NairobiRocks Instagram account.
Otherwise, we hope you'll get painting some rocks of your own and start spreading inspiration!! Having painted some special rocks for International Peace Day, our next collection will be for World Mental Health Day on the 10th October. Please join us by hiding or seeking.
