CBOB Invites You to #GivingTuesday
By: Karissa Disla
As the holiday season approaches, CBOB is becoming a part of the ultimate #GivingTuesday Campaign! Through this campaign, CBOB’s followers, along with their friends and family, can openly donate for this giving season. This campaign was designed specifically for supporting our local programs and providing this holiday season a toy for a child and the continuation of our educational workshops at Children Within our Borders cities in Orlando and Gainesville.
Thanksgiving is a season of gratitude; a season where one can reflect on the blessings that their life is full, whether it’s something as simple as having a family. Thanksgiving evokes a sense of consciousness towards the reality of our lives and the people in them, manifesting the first thing we are willing to share for the giving season: our hearts with each other. Children Beyond Our Borders wants to share our heart with you, and we want to do it through this campaign. All donations given in through this campaign will be going directly to the toy drives and funding of the holiday events in Orlando and Gainesville, our programs focus directly on giving back to a struggling community.
CBOB’s Operation Director, Tatiana Paz, was inspired by this campaign and planted seeds of inspiration amongst CBOB’s interns after stating, "We want to make it a goal to make sure that every child in our CWOB programs can receive a brand new, unopened gift for this next upcoming holiday.” So, our goal is this: to bring joy and love amid the children of struggling community. Each donation isn’t simply a new toy, it is a spirit of love of being distributed through a toy. Each donation guarantees one more new present for a child; it guarantees a child’s sense of significance in themselves. Just picture this: through your donation you will give a child their first ever unused gift, you would be giving them something that is their own!
Join CBOB during this season of giving thanks and giving back by becoming a part of a campaign. Through your donation, you can ensure a smile on a child’s face because of the new treasure you will be giving them. Perhaps the most important and significant role you can play in this campaign is also the simplest: sharing the campaign and our goal to your own Facebook feed. This promotes a larger coverage, meaning more chances to impact more children. Don’t simply be a part of something, inspire others to become a part of it also.
CBOB challenges you to spread love for this season.
