Dear Friends,

Black Friday and Cyber Monday have a new friend: Happy Giving Tuesday! When I met with Giving Tuesday's Boaz Paldi last night he shared "I think we need a day of celebrating giving. It's a day that we can all come together and think about what we're giving, how we're doing it, and the fact that we can do it all over the world and in different ways. I think it's important to have this day: we have so many other days we celebrate, and we don't have a day of giving."

Will you join us in #GivingTuesday? The SOLD Project is so close to reaching our goal to build the second classroom at our Resource Center in Thailand. When you donate to build the classroom, 100% of the funds go directly to the building project. To make it even better, Global Giving is offering to print, download or mail a card if you choose to make the gift in someone's honor. This card, coupled with some of our new merchandise or student art makes the perfect holiday gift. 

Also, we have great news! Not only are we close to completing the floors for the Second Classroom but just yesterday we got word that LUSH Beauty Products is granting us $7,100 to build the walls and ceilings for both levels! To top it off, one of our donors was so excited by the LUSH grant that he gave another $5,000! This leaves us with $12,900 left to complete the classroom. We are so excited to be nearing our goal! Thank you for all of your support in making this second classroom possible.

Happy #GivingTuesday and Happy Holidays!

With gratitude,

Rachel Goble & The SOLD Project team
